It’s time for school, and if you’re in the habit of packing lunches to send, you’re probably like me in that you run out of ideas pretty quickly into the new school year. It goes beyond just having stuff to pack. It’s that it gets boring packing the same thing day in and day out. Here are a few ways that you can take one ingredients–yogurt–and turn it into several different lunch options.
Ideas for packing a yogurt-laden lunch:
- Turn it into a freezer smoothie. My kids love having frozen smoothies in their lunch. We pack them with ice packs, and by the time lunch rolls around they’re just right for stirring and sipping.
- Yogurt and pretzels or cookie sticks. If you have a dipper, pairing yogurt with pretzels or cookie sticks is a great way to get them to eat both.
- Fruit and granola. It’s breakfast for lunch, but it’s oh so good. A scoop of granola and fresh fruit turn ordinary yogurt into a parfait.
- Frozen by its lonesome. My kids are yogurt lovers, and to keep the yogurt cool, I’ll pop the whole package into the freezer at home. Then I just pack frozen yogurt that is thawed and still cold by the time they’re ready to eat.
