Back to school means no more kids in your houses all day eating everything out of your homes. But it also means making sure their lunches are substantial enough to fuel them throughout the day. So what back to school lunches will do just that?
Balanced ones that taste great.
While I do like to make sure that my kids’ lunches have proper nutrition for them, I have little foodies so I have to make sure that it tastes delicious. And with how much they jabber, I need to make sure that whatever they have is packed with nutrients for lasting energy.
Juicy Juice Makes Lunches Pop
While juice is really delicious, we like to ensure that it’s good in moderation. They typically get 1 to 2 servings daily and we still check to make sure that the quality of what we’re giving them is on par. This is why I love the new drinks from Juicy Juice. They have 3 new drinks that are perfect for lunchboxes.
Juicy Juice Fruitfuls Organic
This is a great juice for any time. It has 45% less sugar than the leading juices and has half a cup of fruit per serving. It comes in Apple, Grape and Fruit Punch.
Juicy Juice Juicy Waters
With the temps hitting almost 100 degrees daily, this filtered water that has a splash of flavor is perfect for keeping the kids hydrated.
Juicy Juice + Protein
My kids are SUPER active and one is a performing arts school which means that they are burning even more calories. It has 5 extra grams of protein for the days they need it most.
Building A Balanced Lunch Box
Most schools have time for a morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack. I’ve seen lunch boxes packing in SO much for lunchtime only to have the kids come home with most of their food because they didn’t get a chance to eat.
- Fruit pouches
- Cereal bars
- Breakfast biscuits (yes, these are great for curbing morning hunger)
- Yogurt covered raisins
- Veggie Chips
- Hummus + Veggies
- Turkey + Cheese + Hummus Sandwich
- 3 Cheese Tortellini Pasta
- Pita stuffed with lettuce + hummus + roasted chicken
- Grilled Cheese Sandwich
- Yogurt + Granola + Dried fruit
Adding a juice box with one of the new profiles makes a great addition as well!
