I love sending my kids to school with fun, colorful lunches. I figure, school can sometimes feel like you’re stuck in the doldrums, and a little brightly colored food has a way of making the day a little better than it was before. Of course, there are lots of totally unhealthy, artificial ways to pack a rainbow school lunch for your kids, but why not perk it up with a few fresh fruits and veggies, in all the colors of the rainbow, and carton of YOPLAIT Trix Yogurt?
To pack this bento-style, rainbow lunch, I simple tossed the following into a reusable plastic container, making sure the colors were descending in rainbow order:
- 1 carton YOPLAIT TRIX YOGURT in the center of the container
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
- 1 banana
- A handful of fresh green beans (peas would work, as well)
- 3/4 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/2 cup raw almonds
- 1 rainbow-chip granola bar
Arrange it all in your container, cover with a lid, and send your kiddo to school with a rainbow!
