School is almost here for us in PA while many states go back to school in August our summer lasts till after labor day. I have to say I really enjoyed the lazy summer. The though of getting back to making lunches and rush of morning does not thrill me. I often think my son and daughter are always rushing to have a healthy lunch. Both of my kids have told me they really do not enjoy the school lunches and the wait in lines and have enough time to eat and get to go outside for free time with friends.
This year I have paired up with Giant for a back to school reminder of lunch. Giant reminded me to include at least 3 of the 5 food groups into the kids lunch every day. Which variety is very important to my daughter who loves veggies and dipping, But I also try to incorporate whole grains and dairy. My daughter is not a sandwich kid and more of a grazer.
I love the Natures Promise brand at Giant. Not only does it make packing a lunch easy but healthy organic real fruit options. Try freezing apple sauce my daughter likes it chilled and by lunch it is the correct cool temperature for her.
The organic Boxofjuice is just what the kids need for back to school.
Or try a great start in the morning with great Granola and Cranberries.
New this fall Giant has a great line of honey Crisp apples products. The have Granola, barque sauce, juice and apple chicken meatballs.
