I still have to pinch myself when I see my son standing so tall. He was such tiny baby – at just over 3 lbs, and born at 30 weeks – that it still amazes me how articulate he is, and how inquisitive.
Packing his lunch is a bit of a milestone for me. Seeing him able to leave the nest and eat outside of our home – well, it makes me all mushy inside. So today, I’m sharing some of the easiest ways to pack some FUN into kids’ lunches. I would love to put a secret spy camera into my son’s lunchbox so I could see his face when he finds goggly eyes on his sandwich or magnetic letters spelling his name. Create a pick-me-up right in the middle of your child’s day with these super easy and fun to create lunch options for kids!

Tip 1: Pack with Great Ingredients – I want my kids to enjoy eating and giving them tasty options for lunches or snacks is one of the ways I plan to keep them growing healthy and strong. If you haven’t heard of Horizon® products, I hope you’ll check them out – their foods include certified organic ingredients and no high fructose corn syrup; and my kids love the crunch and flavors of everything they make. Horizon® foods taste delicious and in addition to the Horizon® Squeeze Pouches and Horizon® Sandwich Crackers featured here, they also offer crunchy snack grahams, crackers, and mac-n-cheese. Plus their milk is loaded with vitamin D3 and is certified organic. Be on the lookout for their products – I think you’ll be pleased to know that packing tasty foods into kids’ lunches is now easier than ever.
FUN Lunchbox Video
To demonstrate how easy it is to pack a healthy lunch, I’ve created a short time-lapse video below. I also feature some fun “Peanuts” characters in the video – Charlie Brown and Snoopy. The Peanuts Movie opens on November 6, 2015 in theaters nationwide. Our family always gets excited when a new kid friendly movie is released, we hope to make it to the theaters to see this movie together as a family.
