Top 4 Macronutrients For Kids For Every Meal

Updated: May 14, 2020

It's true- we create picky eaters. I believe there are some exceptions to this, however. But for the most part, this is a very true reality. Sorry to burst your bubble (most of us are guilty on some level!

Here are some healthy lunch options for your kiddo:

  1. Nitrate/Nitrite free turkey- (most often added as harmful preservative) ***These chemicals react with amino acids in foods in the stomach to form highly carcinogenic compounds known as nitrosamines. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

  2. Half an avocado- don't forget to include a spoon!

  3. Cubed raw organic goat cheese (sheep or cow works, too)

  4. Organic sliced cucumber- leave skin on for fiber nutrients

  5. Add organic raw hummus as a yummy dip!

  6. Organic sugar snap peas

  7. Raw walnuts and pistachios

I realized when my kids are younger, between the ages 2 and 4, they tend to eat mainly the fruit, so I have to balance the fruit/veggie ratio. They also gets berries (which is low glycemic and won't spike their blood sugar) and some kind of fruit at breakfast or at snack, so I tend to not add a ton of fruit to his school lunch. If I do, it is a very small amount.


  1. Stainless steel container by Planet Box

  2. BPA FREE plastic container

**Don't forget your ice pack to keep food fresh and cold!**

Nothing like a well balanced, healthy meal packed full with the right nutrients for your little!

TIP: Be sure to include all four MACRONUTRIENTS to each meal:

  1. Healthy fat

  2. Carb

  3. Protein

  4. Fiber

This will help aid in proper digestion and create a well balanced diet.

Remember to keep it real by not overwhelming yourself. If this is all new to you, take a deep breath, and go one step at a time. You got this!

You rock!
