Can you believe the school year is already here? With all of the excitement of back-to-school, your kids will face many changes. Help your kids make smart choices every day, starting with their health by packing these snack and meal ideas.
Kids need fuel to get them through the day, which is why it is important for you to pack food that will keep them full and energized. Here’s some items that you can pack in their lunches:
- Pick items that won’t weigh their lunch bags down, such as our Shakes to Go. Kids love drinks that have a lot of sugar; however, too much sugar can be a bad thing. Our Shakes to Go are a perfect drink option, as each contains 0g of sugar. All they need to do is add water and shake.
- Protein bars are another great option as they are perfect for breakfast, afternoon, or an after-dinner treat. Your kids will love our protein bars, as each contains only 100 calories.
- Kids love Mac & Cheese! Give them a healthy, quick meal by whipping up our Nacho Mac & Cheese meal. Most schools contain microwaves, so all they have to do is ask their teachers to heat it up for them.
