Healthy Kid Approved Lunch Idea

Thank you to  Fruitshoot for sponsoring today’s post, but my love for their delicious juice is all my own!

My kids know that it’s a special day when I allow them to pack a lunch and bring it to school. I am “that Mom” who makes her kids eat school lunch daily. I do let them chose their menu items, but always encourage the healthiest option. When the stars align and we pack lunches for school you can be sure they are healthy lunches. Today I have a healthy kid approved lunch idea that’s sure to be a hit at your house as it is mine.

Let’s start with the smaller sections. We have fresh blueberries. My kids act like they are candy. Maybe that’s because I only buy them when they are 2.00 or less a pint. We also have baby carrots. And because I have created sauce addicts in my house, no lunch with fresh veggies is complete without a little container of ranch!

Moving on to the drink portion. I cannot always guarantee my kids will eat the fruit and veggies I have packed in their lunch. I can however guarantee that if I pack a fruit packed drink in their lunch they will drink that right up. My kids are loving the new Robinson’s FruitShoots. FruitShoot also features a no-spill cap (no more juice stains on their shirts!), perfect for children of all ages, and contains no fructose corn syrup, making it a much better option than other flavored drinks.  These vibrant fun colored bottles come in tasty flavors of Orange, Apple (literally tastes like eating an apple), Berry Burst, and Strawberry/Raspberry. You can visit the Fruitshoot Facebook page, to find more information about the product.

Our sandwich for this lunch is a healthy spin on a chicken salad sandwich. I substituted Mayo for avocado.

  2. My kids are total suckers for anything that comes in a bottle with a sports cap! My little dude will munch some carrots and ranch, but my girlie, she’s all about the grapes.
