Back-to-school season is already in full swing for some families, and for others, it is just around the corner. September will be here before you know it, and that means our kids will be making lunches every day for school again.
Our kids have made their own lunches nearly every day since kindergarten. They have never been fans of the “meh” school lunch options offered to them.
While the same old lunch from home day in and day out gets a little bit boring, there is something to be said for lunch staples that kids love.
My kids love a good PB&J sandwich and eat them often, especially when they can make their PB&J out of products that use the highest quality Certified Organic and Non-GMO ingredients.
Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Peanut Butter is made with USDA certified organic peanuts that not only taste delicious, but it also contains no sugar, no hydrogenated oils, and no artificial ingredients—just peanuts and salt. It tastes great, and it's better for you than so many other peanut butters on the market.
Santa Cruz Organic fruit spreads have a homemade style and spreadable texture made with organic fruit. One of my twins makes her PB&Js with Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Creamy Peanut Butter and Santa Cruz Organic Seedless Red Raspberry Spread (she'll only eat jelly/preserves/jam with no seeds; it's a texture thing). The other twin prefers the Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Crunchy Peanut Butter with Santa Cruz Organic Strawberry Fruit Spread.
And for another easy and tasty lunch box component or quick after-school snack before activities like track and field or dance, my girls love to pack a Santa Cruz Organic Applesauce cup.
Each 4-ounce cup of Santa Cruz Organic applesauce provides 100% Reference Daily Intake of Vitamin C, so this is a no-brainer for their lunch box or a quick snack. The easy packaging makes them great for taking anywhere, too, so they can eat them on the go wherever they happen to be.
