KID-FRIENDLY FARMERS MARKET LUNCHABLE

Hey guys!

Can you believe August is already coming to an end?!  Where did the summer go?  I don’t think I met my ice cream quota for the season so I’m gonna work on that stat. 😛

So one (of the many) reasons I love summer is no doubt the availability and of so many seasonal fruits & veggies.  The farmers markets are booming, my local grocer always has fruit & veggie options that are affordable… it’s a nutritionist’s dream.  *sigh*  And while I’m really gonna miss summer produce in a few weeks, there’s still time left to squeeze in some shopping for your favorite summer fruits & veggies.

Today, I’m showing off how you can assemble a kid-friendly seasonal lunch from your local farmers market.  The market can be a great one-stop-shop for nutritious lunches for your favorite little person.  Check out what I whipped up this last week…

When you think about making a meal, always keep MyPlate in mind.

It does not have to be a perfect science… the idea is to make 1/2 your meal your favorite fruits and/or veggies, 25% of your meal protein and 25% of your meal grains.  And for growing little bodies, don’t forget the calcium-rich source!

So here’s a simple KID-FRIENDLY FARMERS MARKET LUNCHABLE you can make this week…
