Box Lunches That Boost Grades

The right lunch can boost kids' brainpower, cut down on sick days and give them steady energy. Here are the best foods to keep school kids in tip-top shape:

  • 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.
