This Is Not Your Kid’s Lunch

I picked up an issue of Parents magazine and had to laugh about one article.  It was “11 Easy, Healthy Brown-Bag Ideas” – nutritious lunches from the top chefs that taste great too.  Always in need of a good, easy idea, I turned to p. 224.

Here’s what I found…

  • Whole Grain Hummus Sandwich with Veggies (cucumber, sprouts, arugula)
  • Tropical Turkey Spring Rolls (cabbage leaves filled with turkey, mango, avocado, and pea sprouts)
  • Crunchy Baked Mozzarella Sticks
  • Grilled Chicken Salad with Herb-Sherry Vinaigrette

Where to begin?  First, any adult would be privileged to have such a fine lunch but I think it might go unappreciated on a 5-year-old.  Next, what mom is rolling veggies in a cabbage leaf in the morning?  What has time to dip cheese in panko breadcrumbs and bake before breakfast? 

I had to chuckle at this brown-bag list of recipes.  For my son, it’s back to a cheese sandwich, apple, banana chips, pretzels and water!
