Real Mom Lunches

Last week, we had the pleasure of showcasing the Real Mom Lunches from Sally, of Real Mom Nutrition, whose blog was just included in Health Magazine's "10 Healthy Food Blogs That Truly Satisfy." I've been following Sally for years and have been impressed with her honesty, sincerity and can-do attitude when it comes to feeding kids. The lunches she shared with us on Instagram were exactly what I had expected – filled with no-nonsense foods that are easy for parents to pack and easy for kids to love. And guess what? Sally shared the "after" shots of how those Real Mom Lunches were received by her kids and they were a hit. 

Here's a round up of what one of our favorite dietitians packs for her kids' school lunches: 

Cheddar cheese stick, whole grain bread with butter, green beans, strawberries, dried mango and raisins, and a small piece of chocolate.

Easy, straightforward and delicious. That's how Sally keeps it real for lunch. And how delicious does that pizza bread look? Here's the recipe and if you're looking for more from her, check out her fab recipes and of course, her book! Thanks so much for sharing with us, Sally!
