12 Dietitian Approved Brown Bag Lunches the Whole Family Will Love

Starting the day with a healthy breakfast is a great first step, but our healthy eating goals tend to test us most around lunch. Long days that are jam packed with meetings, drop-offs, pick-ups, and appointments, it could feel close to impossible to squeeze in a healthy lunch. Forbes estimates that Americans eat lunch out at least twice per week, and spend almost $1,000 annually just on this meal alone. Packing some lunches ahead of time are not only a great way to stay on track with your health goals, it’s also a simple way to save some cash ($1,000 to be exact). Check out our list of carefully curated, Dietitian approved brown bag lunches the whole family will love.
