Snack/Lunch ideas for children

In this age of packaged food, I cringe when I see some of the children’s lunch/snacks.
Prepackaged drinks filled with sugar, chips loaded with fats and preservatives, mac n cheese that can be heated and eaten straight from the box, small snack sized packets of dried fruit, etc.

With a little planning and effort it’s not difficult to make delicious homemade snacks that will nourish your childrens body, mind and soul.

Here are some ideas-
