As you are preparing your shopping list for back-to-school, when it comes to lunches, here are tips and product picks to fill your lunch boxes for protein, whole grains, and drinks!
Whole Grains - Add in whole grains with granola bars, whole wheat wraps, whole wheat bread, and whole grain crackers. A favorite granola bar of mine are the KIND Healthy Grain Bars (pictured left) - made with 5 super grains: oats, millet, quiona, amaranth, and buckwheat. A favorite cracker are the classic original Triscuit or the tasty new Brown Rice Triscuits.
Drinks - If you are packing a drink for your children, look for juice options that are made with 100% fruit and/or vegetable juice with no added sugar, to pack in vitamins and minerals. For example: good2grow with fun no-spill character toppers (pictured right) or Honest Kids pouches. Plus switch it up from time to time and pack mini water bottles or small cans of sparkling water! Or even opt for shelf-stable milk drink boxes like those by Horizon Organic.
