My family is enjoying healthy snacks as part of a sponsored series with GoGo squeeZ and Socialstars. #
Healthy snacks are the only thing allowed in this house, and so I keep a low snack pantry for my kids that is easy to reach and filled with healthy snack options. I also stock the lowest shelf in the fridge with more snacks so they can grab them whenever they want. I teach my kids to snack healthy, and model healthy eating, so they learn to make nutritious choices for themselves as well.
Of course, we keep it going when it’s time to pack back to school lunches!
The perfect lunch box ideally contains something from each major food group, and especially contains foods with important vitamins and nutrients a child needs to be nourished and energized throughout the day.
How We Pack A Perfect School Lunch
1. A sandwich– offers meat, whole grains, and dairy (I usually make it with chicken breast or turkey and a slice of American cheese on whole wheat bread)
2. GoGo squeeZ– an applesauce pouch that provides a healthy fruit snack for kids, with an additional fruit depending on the flavor my sons want that day
3. Veggies– sliced into very small pieces for safety
4. A healthy beverage– my sons tend to like milk, fruit juice, or a bottle of water- I let them choose
Whether my kids are in school, or at home playing or working on their homework, we keep GoGo squeeZ nearby in their favorite flavors so they can just grab an applesauce pouch, twist off the cap, and enjoy. They are perfect for on the go so I always pop two into my purse before we head out anywhere. They can enjoy them in the car too.- it’s goodness on the go!
