Lunch Tips
Northwest Montessori School parent and Registered Dietician, Brandi Olden helps her daughter make lunch everyday. Here are a few of her favorite tips to make lunch preparation a bit easier. To learn more about Brandi please visit her website at

Lunch Tips

  • Make foods easy to eat by cutting up fruits and vegetables when possible.
  • An insulated thermos isn’t just for soup. Leftovers can offer your child a hot lunch and reduce your prep time.
  • Let them dip; studies show that children eat significantly more fruits and vegetables when given a dip. Try ranch, ketchup, mustard, hummus, seed/nut butter or yogurt.

Remember food safety.
Pack perishables in an insulated bag with an ice pack to keep them fresh until lunchtime.
