School Lunch Tips & Tricks
Dr. Lynn Wagner and her daughter Zita share some of their favorite tips and tricks to getting school lunches packed every week. Take a look.
Dr. Wagner's Recipe Builder:
I love water because it is so important for health! I try to steer away from sugary drinks, soda and fruit juices. Though sometimes having a fun drink with dinner makes the experience that much better! To enjoy the best of both worlds, my kids invented their favorite drink: The Spritzer!
Use the ingredients below to build a few of my favorite spritzer combos!
A beautiful glass
100% fruit juice(fresh is best)
Fresh lemon juice
Fresh lime juice
Pure maple syrup
Pour base in a beautiful glass (simple touches make it better).Add flair to glass. Combine 1 part juice to 3 parts sparkling water but this is flexible. Add additional flair as desired. Hand muddle ingredients to increase flavor.
Honey, ginger and lemonade
Mint and lime juice
Cayenne pepper and lemon juice
Cucumber and lavender
Note: When transitioning from soda or 100% fruit juice, start slowly with more juice than water and slowly decrease the amount of juice you use.
