As school is starting up again, we know you mamas and papas are wondering what to prep for your kids’ lunchboxes or even for lunchtime at home! Here are some creative and delicious ways to add microgreens to your kids’ lunch and even some educational pieces to help your kids learn some science!
Best part? They don’t only have to be “kids meals”! Feel free to make yourself one of these yummy and nutritious meals, too!
First, start by growing your Hamama greens! They will take 7-10 days to grow and be ready to be included in those kids’ meals. Once ready to harvest, store the freshly cut greens in a ziplock or Stasher bag - they will last up to 10 days that way! To start, I’d recommend broccoli or super salad as they make everyone’s taste buds happy, even those picky eaters!
We recently shared a blog post about microgreen growing for kids. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check it out! It has a walkthrough of how your greens should grow, a log to keep track of growth, and even a kids coloring sheet. It’s a great resource for getting your kids involved in the growing process and for getting them excited about eating their greens! You can find it here.
