It seems like summer just started and I’m already buying back to school clothes and supplies and wondering what I’m going to pack in my Little Guy’s lunch box for his first year of preschool. I was very particular when my girls were young and I packed their lunches way back when. They bought school lunch once in a blue moon. I packed their lunches almost daily until they were old enough to choose wisely and pack their own. My Little Guy’s lunch box is going to be filled with lots of healthy and delicious foods from one of our favorite places, Whole Foods Market!
I was Blessed to receive a huge variety of healthy lunch box goodies for review courtesy of my friends at Whole Foods Market!
You are what you eat. It’s a fact. We all know that children who eat healthy foods have the stamina to perform like a rock star in school. But packing nutritious lunches with ‘kid appeal’ can be a challenge. That’s why I turn to Whole Foods Market for organic lunch items I know My Little Guy loves and I know are good for him!
365 Everyday Value® offers products that are formulated to meet all of Whole Foods Market’s quality standards, which means you won’t find any artificial sweeteners, preservatives, colors, flavors or hydrogenated fats in their back to school lunch box goodies.
Portable Fruity Snacks On-The-Go
My Little Guy is a vegetarian and one of his favorite snacks is fruit. Packing fresh fruit is a great idea but for variety I’ll be stashing 365 Everyday Value Organic Applesauce Cups into his lunch box. Unlike store brands these are made with 100% organic apples and come in three yummy flavors; unsweetened, berry flavor and cinnamon. They’re perfectly portioned and My Little Guy loves them! Price ~ $2.99 per 6 pack.
Another fun, fruity favorite are 365 Everyday Value Organic Thompson Seedless Raisins, available in 1.5oz packs. These are great for travel and school! They’re not messy and what kid doesn’t love raisins? They’re plump, and the box is perfectly portioned for pint sized appetites. Price $2.19 per 6 pk.
Back To School Thirst Quenchers
Whole Foods Market offers a variety of 100% Juice Boxes to include in your little ones lunch box! At home I serve milk or 100% juice. So why would I toss a sugary drink in my Little Guy’s lunch box? No Sir! Each 365 Everyday Value Organic Juice Box provides 100% RDA vitamin C and they taste yummy. Available in Apple, Five Fruit Punch, Orange, White Grape & Lemonade. Price ~ $2.49 – 2.99
Lunch Box Treats! Can You Say Yum?
I’m a whiz at packing sandwiches and the main part of lunch! I’ve done it for so many years I’ve got it down pat! Hummus and carrots, all kinds of veggie sammies. Heck when my kids got a little older I even packed them hot soup and veggie stews! But snacks get boring fast. Kids love variety and Whole Foods Market has lots of healthy treats to put a smile on their face and end lunch on a happy note!
365 Everyday Value Organic Animal Cookies are My Little Guy’s all time favorite! The huge one pound bag is a real bargain! I love the resealable zip-top bag which seals in freshness! These classic bite sized vanilla animal cookies un-iced! They’re just sweet enough and perfect for lunch box treats. They won’t make little ones hyper after they enjoy a few! Price ~ $3.69
365 Everyday Value Organic Quack-N-Bites Cheese Crackers – Organic quack’n bites® are made with organic cheddar cheese for a bold, cheesy taste everyone loves! They’re shaped like little ducks so they’re fun to eat! Perfect for lunch boxes, snacks and don’t forget to add some to your soup! Mmmm! Price $2.99
It’s A Wrap!
Even at the age of 21 and 26 my kids can do go through paper goods like crazy. I’m such a tree hugger it makes me nuts. That’s why I use napkins, foils, and lunch bags that are eco-friendly!
365 Everyday Value 100% Recycled Lunch Napkins are made from 100% recycled paper (80% post consumer.) And that saves trees! Woot!!! They’re whitened without chlorine bleach, they’re hypo-allergenic and fragrance free. Some brands made with recycled paper use chlorine bleach to whiten their products.
When the paper is bleached, dangerous chemicals can be released into the environment. 365 Everyday Value 100% Recycled Lunch Napkins are whitened using a safer environmentally friendly method! I kinda love that!
When I can’t pack My Little Guy’s snacks in reusable containers I use 365 Everyday Value Snack Bags & 365 Everyday Value Sandwich Bags. They’re made from 100% polyethylene. They don’t contain any PVC, phthalates or bisphenol A (BPA)
