Since we couldn’t settle on just 10, here are even more ways to pack half a plate of fruits and veggies into your kid’s lunches!

1. Get creative with cauliflower! There are tons of great ways to add cauliflower to meals! Mix in with mashed potatoes, make cauliflower pizza crust, or cover steamed cauliflower in cheesy sauce for a healthier mac ‘n cheese!
