Packing a lunchbox is always a challenge! As the kiddos head back-to-school, “Mom” has selected three delicious and nutritious options for packing a healthier lunchbox! In addition to fresh fruit, veggies, lean protein and whole grains, the products below are excellent choices for inclusion, as well!
3 Nutritious Lunchbox Snacks for the School Year
Seeking a sweet, healthy treat to pack in your child’s lunchbox or tuck in their backpack for an after school snack? Fruit Bliss offers a selection of all-natural, unsulfured fruit that is just as sweet and juicy as fresh fruit! We are loving the dried plums and apricots here at Tiny Green Mom – we devoured a little snack bag of each within minutes!
Made using high-quality whole fruit sourced from Turkey, France and Tunisia, Fruit Bliss’ sun-sweetened whole apricots, plums, dates and figs are infused with moisture to deliver a deliciously juicy fruit every time. Packed with fiber and essential vitamins, Fruit Bliss snacks are Non-GMO Project Verified, Vegan and OU Kosher certified and available in five varieties, including Soft Dried Apricots Sourced from Turkey, Soft Dried Figs Sourced from Turkey, Soft Dried d’Agen Plums Sourced from France, Soft Dried Dates Sourced from Tunisia and Soft Fruit Medley – Apricots, Figs and Plums. Fruit Bliss snacks are available in 1.75 oz. and 6 oz. re-sealable pouches. You can locate a retailer near you or order online at FruitBliss.com.
Komplete Ultimate Shakes
Some mornings, there just isn’t enough time for a nutritious breakfast! If this is a common problem among your kids, try Kate Farms’ Komplete Ultimate Shakes – a line of dairy-free, gluten-free, and soy-free ready to drink meal replacement shakes.
Made with certified organic ingredients and blended with antioxidants and 21 superfoods (including acai, mangosteen, raspberries, and green tea extract), this creamy creation of all-natural ingredients will ensure that your little ones are receiving the proper nutrition to stay healthy throughout the school year. We also like creating a morning smoothie that includes Komplete Vanilla Bliss, 1 banana, a dash of cinnamon, and ice for quick morning pick-me-up! You can visit www.KateFarms.com for more information or to order online.
Little ones can snack big with these mighty little KIND Bars. These perfectly portioned KIND Bars are an optimal after school snack before sports or a healthy dessert option packed in a lunchbox (think Almond & Coconut!). The Mini Variety Pack has four popular KIND Bar flavors packaged together, including Almond & Coconut, Nut Delight, Fruit & Nut Delight, and Cranberry Almond + Antioxidants. At just approximately 100 calories, and boasting a combo of fiber, protein and heart healthy fats, KIND Bars are a delightful and nutritious snack!
