Being a homeschooling mom, I don’t have to pack nearly as many lunches as a mom whose kids are in school. I try to make lunch at home simple yet fun.
We do however spend more than our fair share of time on the road. We love to have adventures, take day trips or even enjoy a picnic down by the river. This summer we have been on the go more than normal due to traveling for doctor’s appointments for our upcoming little one. While the kids enjoy eating out, it isn’t always good on our pocketbook or our tummies. So I made it my goal to be a little better about packing lunches or at least snacks for us to bring along.
It is amazing just how much a fun snack will lighten the mood with my children.
For my kids, it is all about giving them options to make it fun, even if we don’t eat out. Being busy, I need my options to be good for the kids but easy for me to throw together quickly.
Keeping simple foods with ingredients mom can feel good about on hand makes it so much easier! A few simple finger foods are usually simple to pack and fun to eat! Especially is that true when we are on the go. Austin’s lunch box usually looks slightly different than the girls as they both have food allergies.
Horizon® aspectic milk boxes are Austin’s favorite drink treat. While he usually selects vanilla milk, this week he opted for chocolate instead. I love that they don’t require refrigeration, are an excellent source of calcium and contain no high fructose corn syrup. He loves the rich flavor that comes from organic cocoa or organic vanilla.
Just recently while we shopped at Walmart, we came across Horizon® sandwich crackers that both kids could have! What kiddos don’t love peanut butter stuffed crackers? These are a perfect nutrious snack that are perfect for little hands and mouths! They also come in a cheddar cheese stuffed cracker that is delicious! They are currently packaged in a fun Peanuts movie packaging for the upcoming The Peanuts Movie in theaters on Nov. 6th. Check out the fun The Peanuts Movie trailer here.
