Here are some of those foods, which can easily be included in your child's school lunch.
The skin and the flesh of an apple are two different kinds of fiber and are a great addition to a school lunch. Just be sure to leave the skin on — that's where much of fiber is contained.
You won't find many better fiber-filled fruits than raspberries. Just one cup has eight grams of fiber.
Like apples and baked potatoes, much of the fiber in pears - and just one medium pear has a quarter of the fiber kids need each day - is in the skin, but the flesh is likewise tasty and healthy.
Children obviously love popcorn and it's a healthy, low-cost snack that can easily be included in school lunches. Three cups popped have about 3.5 grams of fiber.
Children love the sweetness of oranges and one orange contains two to three grams of fiber. Choose the fruit and not the juice, however, since orange juice has practically no fiber at all.
Raisins are sweet but have no added sugar. Moreover, they're a good source of fiber and also contain iron.
Look for brands of nut butter that contain only nuts and salt while avoiding those that have extra sugar and oils. Nuts are a great source of fiber, protein and healthy fats.
