Well, school starts tomorrow and I am feeling almost ready for it. With both the kids in high school this year, they do most of the organizing but there are a few things that I needed to take care of. My biggest priority is making sure they have good healthy lunches everyday that they will actually eat! If you have school age you know exactly what I mean!
My kids love peanut butter, and although it is OK to send peanut butter in high school, I still think that it is best not to. I know there are kids with severe allergies in the same class as my daughter and I would feel much better knowing that they were safe. I found WOWBUTTER. WOWBUTTER offers a taste and texture just like peanut butter, but with better nutrition! From making simple sandwiches to creating delicious recipes that typically call for peanut butter, WOWBUTTER is a yummy allergen-free alternative! I haven’t tried it yet, but I can’t wait to make WOWBUTTER cookies for the kids!
The other item that I feel is very important is the Thermos. The one I found keeps items hot or cold! Now I can send leftover potato salad or hot chili. I can’t wait to get using the new Thermos for the kids.
I usually add an ice pack in with cold as well, so I have found some great flexible ice packs that wrap around containers.
Now, if only I could be assured that the kids will actually eat their lunch when they get there! I guess this one is up to them!
Happy back to school for all your family tomorrow. If you have any great lunch ideas, please share them with us. It doesn’t take me long to run out of creative ways to get the kids to eat!
Until next time.
