Do you feel like you need to add a little extra protein to your kid’s lunch? This is perfect for you!
Here at MOMables, we’re big proponents of the idea “Why BUY it, when you can MAKE it?”
Especially when you’re working on filling up your lunch boxes, you can never go wrong with more options, so come check it out here!
So while the boxed “lunches” (*cough* snack size!) at a certain popular coffee chain are made with fresher and healthier ingredients than other boxed lunch options, $5 is still pretty steep for something you can easily put together yourself for less!
Plus packing it yourself means you can control the ingredients and cater to personal tastes. Don’t like pepper? Skip it. Need gluten-free? No problem! Prefer your eggs soft-boiled? Go for it!
The coffee-house boxed “lunch” makes a nice snack or supplement to a larger meal, but with a few changes, you can easily pack a stand-alone lunch!
Make It a Meal!
Add more apples, grapes, and cheese. And include a serving of fresh vegetables too, while you’re at it, for a nice balanced meal! See more ideas on how to make a bistro box here.
*I used a gluten-free multi-grain roll and maple-syrup flavored peanut butter (yum!)Print
