Building a Better Lunch- New Video!

The Picky Eater: This particular lunch is a fun way to get the kid who doesn’t like to eat their veggies to venture out! It contains savory Veggie Tots and PB&J Rolls which are both fun and healthy twists on classic lunch foods.IMG_1291

The All-Star Athlete: Protein and complex carbohydrates are essential for an athlete. This delicious Avocado Tuna Salad Sandwich, will help them perform at their best level in the classroom and on the field by providing them the calories and nutrients for sustainable energy.IMG_1292

The Adventurous Eater: For the experimental, fearless ones out there this lunch box is built to satisfy your taste for adventure! It begins with a Going Greek Dip which is full of flavor and can be used as an appetizer too! Thank you – Carina Greenfield, TTU Dietetic Intern
