Thank you Brainiac™ Kids for sponsoring this post. Brain food kids want to eat!
My kids are the president, vice-president and treasurer of the Team Eat Club. They are seemingly always hungry which makes sense since they are non-stop moving throughout the day and their brains are growing. Instead of fussing at them for eating me out of house and home, I’ve been more intentional about the foods that I’m packing that will fuel both their bodies and brains. How do you do that while making sure they get the nutrition they need?
By choosing foods that do double duty like the ones from Brainiac™ Kids.
Packing Lunches That Support Your Kids’ Brain
Being completely honest, I will typically overpack lunches for my kids. They love it when I pack their lunch because they know there will be enough snacks included that will keep them full and able to focus on what matters while at school—learning. So how do I do that?
I diversify and have fun with it.
Since peanut butter and jelly is out of the question courtesy of allergies and my middle daughter isn’t the biggest fan of sandwiches, I have to make sure that I pack something she’ll eat. We do turkey, cheese, and hummus on a croissant. The croissant is made with butter and has lots of fat helping keep her full. The hummus and turkey are excellent sources of protein to give them more sustained energy.
Snacks are all my kids’ favorite. Ok, they’re also my favorite too. They each get one dry snack like cheese crackers, chips, or something like that. Then they get a piece of fruit that’s currently in season. Apples (full of fiber and sweet), strawberries (great antioxidants), and grapes are all favorites around here. During times where we have more activities, we will do pears and bananas to make sure they stay hydrated. We like to put veggies and dip in as well because they’re super delicious! And lastly, we put in a Brainiac™ Kids applesauce.
Why Brainiac Kids?
I’ve tasted Brainiac™ Kids products on more than one occasion. I met them at the WOW Summit in November 2019 and fell in love with their products. Their yogurt is delicious and I now I can’t keep the applesauce out of my kids’ hands! Brainiac™ Kids applesauce is made with 100% real fruit and no added sugars. They also use different apples that are in season that are picked at their peak times before washing, peeling and pureeing them to maintain their natural sweetness. Not all applesauces are made this way and the quality ingredients make a difference
So what REALLY sets their applesauce aside? It’s not “just” applesauce. Brainiac™ Kids has created a formula called BrainPack that has been created and trademarked just for their products. BrainPack has a unique blend of omega-3 DHA/EPA and choline which means that with just the applesauce, kids can get up to as much as 90% of their daily omega 3s that they need to get their little brains functioning to their big potential. This is as much choline as TWO cups of broccoli.
Brainiac™ Kids make fueling their brains both easy and tasty!
