Pack an organic lunch box for school kids

Newer generations of parents have grown up with a stronger awareness when it comes to food sourcing and healthy choices. Kids of the 1980s may have gorged on candy and drinks packed with food coloring and artificial flavors, but they grew up to be conscientious parents who generally avoid it for their own kids. Luckily, access to organic food has become easier than ever, so packing an organic lunch for kids is very doable and won’t break the bank.

For starters, you’ll want to figure out what your child likes to eat for lunch. Do they like variation, or is it generally the same thing every day? If your kid eats peanut butter and jelly most days, you have very few ingredients to get in organic form: peanut butter, jelly, bread, and a side snack like carrot sticks or yogurt. You should be able to get most of these in a standard grocery store.

If your child likes a wide variety of food, this could be a bit more complicated. For example, an organic turkey sandwich would require organic spinach, cheese, mustard, and so on. And you might want to get a healthier kind of turkey without antibiotics. This would probably require a regular visit to a specialty store to remain stocked up at your home.  You also might want to allow yourself an ingredient or two as non-organic; if you can’t track down organically grown mustard, it’s not the end of the world if that’s what you end up using. When you can’t find organic, avoiding chemical preservatives and added sugars is easy enough to do for just about any type of food and keeps things healthy.
