Lunch Ideas
Parents are encouraged to assist their student with the preparation of healthy lunches to be eaten at school.  Nutrition is important for children as they grow and learn.  Click the link below for some fresh ideas.

Slice of additive-free chicken or turkey 
Lettuce leaves (dark green) 
Paprika (sprinkle on poultry slices) 
Apple (yellow or red delicious) 
Vanilla enriched rice milk (lunch box size)

Spread (such as canola or Earth's Best) on one side of tortilla 
Last night's leftovers (placed on half of tortilla and rolled up)
