What's for Lunch
If you've got a thermos, you've got half of what you need for a hot, hearty, and healthy kid's lunch.
Make a batch of chili ahead of time and then heat it up, spoon it in, and send it off to school with the little ones. Easy peasy, and it's good for them.
Ground turkey and black beans make for excellent sources of protein in this lunch, with the turkey providing a healthy alternative to the typical ground beef a chili recipe usually calls for. Pair it with a cornbread muffin, a piece of fruit, and low-fat milk or water, and your child will be full and happy come afternoon recess.
