As a busy mom of two boys with different school schedules, I sometimes feel like we are on the go. Our routine of packing the lunch, getting up, moving seems to have us in a constant state of movement! Trying to keep up with it all can be exhausting! A recent survey found that 88% of parents thought pre-packed lunch kits were convenient, but 79% of those parents were concerned about the nitrates, preservatives and artificial ingredients in those kits. Now you don’t have to compromise between convenience and quality. Your kids get the “cool” appeal and you can lose the guilt. With this new line of lunch kits, be prepared to offer a healthier alternative to something that also makes your life just a little bit easier when it comes to heading out the door!
I love that I get to spend more time doing this and less time standing in front of my kitchen counter.
Applegate teamed up with us and Annies to create the first pre-packed lunch kit with natural and organic ingredients. HALF TIME™ includes Applegate natural meats and cheeses (which have no artificial ingredients or preservatives, and are antibiotic- and hormone-free), Annie’s Homegrown crackers and snacks, and Stonyfield Organic YoKids Squeezers.
The boys favorite part was creating cracker stackers. I can feel better about what I’m offering them for lunch and they can “play with their food” without making a giant mess. They both insisted that I take a picture of their great creations, so I did just that!
For ultimate kid happiness, food must be fun. We know you care about quality, too. Now can feel good about sending off your little one with a convenient, kid-approved, tasty, and wholesome ready-to-go lunch. What’s inside? Unquestionably good stuff: Applegate Natural Turkey (juicy, antibiotic-free), classic Applegate American cheese, Annie’s Buttery Rich Crackers™, Annie’s Organic Berry Patch Fruit Snacks™ and Stonyfield® YoKids® Squeezers® Strawberry Organic Lowfat Yogurt. That’s a big-time lunch win.
The best part about this lunch pack is that they loved every part of it! They didn’t complain that they wanted to throw out one element of it – instead, they gobbled it up and we ready for their next “HALF TIME” in no time. What are our go-to ways for getting your family snacks on the go?
