Back to School: Great Greek style meal ideas
Ensuring that the kids are getting the most out of their meals at school can have a significant impact on their academic performance, mental wellbeing, and physical health.
Also a balanced and varied diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains, support kids growth and development. Nutrient-rich foods fuel their energy levels, boost their immune system, and enhance their cognitive abilities, resulting in better concentration, memory retention, and learning.
Moreover, instilling healthy eating habits in children at an early age can set them up for a lifetime of good health. Encouraging kids to make healthy food choices, by packing nutritious snacks and meals, and ensuring that they have access to healthy food options at school can make a significant difference in their overall wellbeing.
Our Greek recipes are specially curated to offer a balance of flavors, textures, and nutrients that your child will love. From our mouth-watering Greek salad to our delicious chicken souvlaki wraps, we are confident that we have something for everyone.
1.Chicken and vegetable souvlaki:
The Chicken and Vegetable Souvlaki recipe may contain potential allergens like dairy in tzatziki sauce, wheat in pita bread, and garlic and lemon, so individuals with allergies should check labels and make suitable substitutions if needed.
2.Greek Yogurt Parfait
Chopped nuts, if included, could be a source of tree nut allergens. If you or someone has a tree nut allergy, omit the nuts or use a nut-free alternative like sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds.
Greek yogurt is a dairy product. If you or someone you’re preparing the parfait for has a dairy allergy or lactose intolerance, you should use a dairy-free yogurt alternative.
The spinach and feta spanakopita recipe may contain allergens such as dairy (from cheeses and butter), eggs, wheat (in phyllo pastry), soy (in some brands of phyllo), and, in other spanakopita variations, tree nuts and sesame, so individuals with allergies should check ingredient labels and make suitable substitutions if needed.
4.Greek Salad Wrap
None in the base recipe. However, be cautious if you or your child has allergies to specific ingredients like dairy (feta cheese) or wheat (if using regular tortillas instead of gluten-free).
5.Greek Pita Pizza:
6.Greek Pasta Salad:
Reminder that when following recipes for school meals, it’s imperative to consider the unique nutritional needs of each child and always be mindful of potential allergies. Children have diverse dietary requirements and sensitivities, so it’s crucial to work closely with school staff and healthcare providers to accommodate these needs. Prioritizing safety and nutrition ensures that every child can enjoy healthy and safe meals at school.
