Healthy foods with fun trivia make for good lunch treats

Filed under: Nutrition: Health, Development/Milestones: Babies, Day Care & Education

I am always on the search for healthy foods to put in my kids' lunches. Although there is an ongoing struggle over what the kids and I deem as healthy, we can always agree on cheese. Sliced cheese with crackers, string cheese, or the all time favorite, those small Laughing Cow cheese squares.

Wrapped in small cubes of silver foil, these cheeses are packed with flavor and nutrition. My kids also enjoy the odd bits of trivia that are on the inside of each square. The factoids offer up minutia such as: a cow can float in water for up to 20 miles and still survive. Or: on any given day, the average man secretes 2.5 quarts of sweat.

What sorts of healthy foods do your kids like? Anything fun or off the wall?
