  • Peanut butter: a great source of essential fatty acids needed for brain cells.

  • Hard-boiled eggs: loaded with amino acids, selenium and zinc - nutrients that strengthen the immune system.

  • Red grapes: deliver nutrients that prevent infection.

  • Hummus: for its bone-building calcium and magnesium, its energy-boosting B6 and iron and its cold-dashing vitamin C.

I agree with the choices you suggested but just be aware that many children are allergic to peanuts and peanut butter. Check with the school to see whether it is allowed.

I like the egg idea, just one question? How do you keep them from getting egg breath while at school? No gum allowed.
