Healthy Back to School Lunch Ideas
Tortilla filled with avocado, sprouts, and cucumber. Add cream cheese or hummus if desired.
Nut or seed butter and jelly sandwich - does your child’s school have a ban on peanuts? Just use a Dastony butter of choice - cashew, almond, or sprouted sunflower make great alternatives.
Leftover cold pasta salad - easy to eat and not messy
Fruits and Veg
Fresh fruit - berries, kiwi, grapes (again, can be sliced in half to minimize choking hazard), clementine orange wedges, a small banana - pick a few to rotate during the week
Celery and Sprouted Sunflower Butter with raisins
Veggie slices - carrots, cucumbers, cherry toms (slice in half for young children at risk of choking) with a side of raw tahini or hummus as dip
Sides and Snacks
Sunbiotics almonds (a protein-rich snack loaded with probiotics!)
Healthy Chips - we love Siete - they're grain-free and made with avocado oil instead of canola
Organic yogurt - choose plant-based if dairy-free
Raw sprouted nuts and seeds
Edamame with a dash of soy sauce
Rawmio Chocolate Hazelnut + banana roll up in a tortilla - add some hemp seeds for extra protein and omega fats
Dates with Dastony nut or seed butter filling
