Out-of-the-Box Back-to-School Lunch Ideas

Back-to-school means back to hectic schedules for you and your kids. Between working long hours and shuttling kiddos to school and various activities, when are you supposed to find the time to pack healthy lunches? Relying on highly processed foods or the school’s lunch may save time but it can impact your child’s ability to focus in class. Did you know that processed foods have been linked to attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)? A recent study reports reduced ADHD symptoms in 78% of kids who cut out chemical-laden foods, so stick to whole foods and your child’s focus and hyperactivity issues may improve.

Chef Chris offers these quick ideas and time-saving tips that will make lunchtime fun again for both you and your back-to-schoolers.
