Frugal Meals for Kids: Cheap Snack and Lunch Ideas One of the challenges we parents face is packing lunches. We want to ensure our children are eating right, but not breaking our budgets either.

What's a perfect lunch? #SELFMagazine - 55% carbs (complex such as whole grains, brown rice or produce; 55-83 grams w/ at least 6 grams of fiber), 20% protein (lean but hearty such as chicken, shrimp, or lowfat yogurt; 11-34 grams) & 25% fat (healthy monounsaturated such as nuts, avocado or olive oil; 13-18 grams w/ maximum 6 grams saturated).
