Fun Summer Lunch Snacks

Make lunchtime easy this summer and set your kid up for success with these healthy, tooth-friendly, and most of all easy lunchtime meals.

Turkey & Cheese roll-ups: Put a new spin on the traditional turkey sandwich by rolling turkey, cheese, veggies, and the sauce of your choice into a tortilla then cutting it into 1-inch-thick round slices.

Frozen Blueberry Bites: Dip fresh blueberries in vanilla or fruit-flavored yogurt, place on a parchment or wax paper-lined cookie sheet, and freeze for about an hour.

PB&J Apples: Slice apples into ¼” rounds, spread peanut butter and jelly on half of the slices then cover with the remaining halves.

Yogurt Parfaits: Start with a layer of vanilla or fruit-flavored yogurt. Then alternate layering fresh fruit and more yogurt, and top with nuts.

And, don’t forget the number one rule for healthy teeth – regular checkups and brushing! If you need to schedule an appointment, give Jackson Dental a call today at 573-243-5200.
