Ah, schooldays. Public school, private school, homeschool, unschool, field trips, sporting events, and extra-curricular activities. This time of year, it seems like parents everywhere are thinking about what to eat while on the go.
Whether you’re packing a lunch to go or preparing lunch to eat at home, midday meals tend to necessitate the need for quick, tidy, and portable food. And if you’re the parent of a child who deals with food allergies, or you have to pack for a specific healing diet such as GAPS, or you just want to provide a wholesome, nutritious meal for children away from home — packing a lunch can feel like an absolute chore. Especially as the school year marches on.
Fermented foods are one of the best ways to pack a nutritional punch in any meal. And they’re an essential part of many gut-healing diets, so adding fermented foods to a school lunch is a simple addition. The problem lies in knowing what to pack and how to provide variety.

Here’s to easy, healthy lunch packing!
