Make lunch healthy and fun with “Stealth Health Lunches Kids Love”

My girls love to help me and my husband in the kitchen. They have their own aprons and are so proud of their accomplishments when we let them crack an egg or stir some ingredients together. I think it’s so important for kids to understand that food doesn’t just magically appear, it takes a bit of effort and it’s a skill worth learning! Unfortunately, involving them in cooking has yet to tame my oldest’s picky tendencies but we’re not giving up.

One meal that I really want to work on is lunch. Ashlyn will be heading off to junior kindergarten in the fall and since I may not be able to send peanut butter as many schools do not allow it, and grilled cheese sandwiches don’t travel well, I’m already worried about what she’ll eat. As it is now, lunch is thrown together as quickly as possible, in a rush when we get home from a class or a play date and before trying to get the toddler down for a nap. I need inspiration and fun ways to make healthy lunches and that’s why I was happy to be contacted about “Stealth Health Lunches Kids Love”.

With tons of gluten-free wraps and pitas (the recipes are included) there’s sure to be something even the pickiest eater will love! I’m not sure that my sushi-rolling skills will be up to par but the results of the wraps are so yummy looking that I’m willing to give it a shot – and there are step-by-step, illustrated examples at the end of the book to help me out. Many of the recipes are simple and delicious; the Strawberries and Cream pita will be making an appearance at a play date soon!

I really love that it’s such a pretty book to look at; every recipe is accompanied by a beautiful photograph of the final product so I know that Ashlyn can look at it and pick something that she’d like to try. There are also loads of snack ideas – must try the Bunny Nibbles and Crunchy Pebbles – and a whole section on dips and spreads, which would be a fantastic way to get my picky eater to try something new! You can pre-order your copy here at Amazon.com or here at BN.com or you can enter to win one from me!

    My son’s favourite lunch is wow butter sandwhiches (because his school is peanut free), fruit, goldfish crackers, veggies and a chocolate treat.

    My kids love getting buns in their lunch – we don’t buy them too often but when we do, they consider it a real treat. They are pretty easy going, anything goes.

    My son LOVES anything in sandwhich form. Doesn’t matter what’s in there, if it’s a sandwhich, he is a happy camper! :)
