Bistro boxes make lunches easy! This bistro box contains lean protein with grilled chicken, whole grains and fresh veggies like cucumbers and tomatoes plus Ranch for dipping.
With a few simple ingredients (including leftover chicken from dinner the night before), kids can mix and match their own bistro box to fit their taste buds.
Nutrition Tip: Full of vitamin C, tomatoes actually taste sweeter when they’re kept at room temperature (chilling them dulls the flavor). Cucumbers are 96 percent water, so they’re an extra-hydrating veggie for kids.
Let’s talk about these adorable Tomberry Tomatoes from Nature Fresh Farms. They’re about the size of a blueberry and are perfectly poppable and snackable.
Veggies pair perfectly with Ranch for dipping and I love these individual containers of Litehouse® Homestyle Ranch dip – they’re easy to throw into lunchboxes, no mess required!
