It’s Back to School Time and that means I will be packing lots of lunches. This year I have 4 kids in school and that means 20 lunches a week! Last year we introduced a new rule at our house, the kids pack their own lunches. This change has been great for all involved but it meant I needed to make some changes. The food I buy needs to be easy to pack especially since my youngest is a kindergartner. I try to have healthy options that my kids want to eat plus treats on occasion. Here are some of the delicious lunch box options we are enjoying at our house this year.
Before I get into lunch box food though I have to mention a delicious and healthy new product from Green Giant. Green Giant Veggie Tots. The perfect healthy swap for french fries that your kids will love. We had burgers the other day and paired them with a side of Green Giant Veggie Tots Broccoli and Cheese Flavor and they were delicious. My kids loved how cheesey they are and even proclaimed you couldn’t taste the broccoli. If your kids like cheese these are the perfect way to sneak in a few extra veggies this school year. Try some out today and use this $1 off Green Giant coupon.
Now for perfect lunchbox food ideas. Sandwich making can be hard for little ones so a pre-made sandwich is the perfect solution. The Advance Pierre PB Jamwich is a crustless sandwich ready made with grape or strawberry jelly and peanut butter. Keep them in the freezer and your kids can just grab and go!
We are long time fans of Sensible Portions Veggie Straws so finding them in individual bags made me so happy. These come in two flavors classic sea salt and zesty ranch. This delicious snack (yes I love them too) is non-GMO, gluten free and contain no artificial flavors or preservatives. These are a must try if you have never had them.
Mini muffins have been in our cupboard for years the kids love them, they work as breakfast and as a snack. The ENTENMANN’S® Little Bites® Chocolate Chip Muffins & Strawberry Yogurt Muffins are just two delicious varieties, of about 10, that your kids will love. These little muffins have zero trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup and most varieties have lees than 200 calories. Add chocolate to it and your kids will think it’s a special treat so chocolate chip muffins for dessert every day!
Sour Punch Rainbow Straws, a weakness of mine for sure. I love sour candy and seeing that these have no high fructose corn syrup makes me feel better about giving them to my kids as a special treat. Plus no artificial flavors or colors.
For older kids or those packing lunches like my husband you must try RXBARs. RXBARs are dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, and contains absolutely no added sugars. These protein bars are perfetc for those practicing clean eating or who are looking for a healthy packaged snack. Use code BabbleBoxx15 to get 15% off your first order of RXBARs. I like the peanut butter chocolate RXBAR and my kids the mixed berry.
Of course you need a drink to wash down your lunch and my kids are enthralled with Fruit Shoot. The fun little bottles appeal to my kids and this mom loves that they are make with real fruit juice, no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors.
