It’s not always easy getting kids to eat clean, but good nutrition goes a long way when it comes to keeping your kids healthy and happy. A nutritious diet helps kids maintain a healthy weight, keeps them focused at school, and makes it easier to stay emotionally balanced. Healthy eating also minimizes the risk of many diseases including diabetes and heart disease, and makes it more likely kids will eat well when they’re older. It can be hard to find the time and energy to pack a healthy lunch every morning, but there are many great products geared towards kids so you can feel good about what’s in the lunchbox without bending over backwards.
Three NEW and incredibly tasty items for healthy lunching are KIND Peanut Butter Bars, Sabra Pizza Hummus singles and Earthbound Farm Power Bowl individual salads. These products will help you keep your lunchbox clean this back-to-school season so you and your little guys can feel good.
Sabra Pizza Hummus is a new product that your kids are sure to love. Sabra’s pizza flavored hummus is the perfect combination of their classic chickpea spread with pizza- a kid-friendly favorite. The hummus comes in single so you can throw it in the lunchbox with pita chips or raw veggies (like carrots, cucumber and bell peppers) for dipping. It’s also perfect for adding tasty flavor to wraps, sandwiches and salads. One container contains just 140 calories with 4 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber plus healthy fats to keep kids full and focused after lunch. Hummus is also gluten and dairy free so it’s perfect for kids with food
Earthbound Farm is my favorite brand of organic produce and they have a new series of ready to eat salad bowls that are perfect when you need a healthy lunch in a jiffy. Unlike most packaged meals -especially those aimed at kids- these Power Bowls are filled with organic, nutritious ingredients that you can feel good feeding your little ones. Power Bowls come in four tasty flavors, Asian Noodle, Kale Caesar, Spinach Quinoa and Southwest, so there’s a little something for everyone. The salads come with a variety of tasty toppings and a delicious dressing so your kids won’t feel like they’re eating a boring bowl of leaves. Each hearty salad has at least 5 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber and loads of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and other nutrients to help you little ones grow strong.
KIND Healthy Grains Peanut Butter Berry Bars are great for kids. Re-imagining a lunchbox staple, KIND Healthy Grains Peanut Butter Berry bars are made with a unique blend of five super grains, coated in peanut butter and combined with sweet raspberries and cranberries. Each bar is a good source of fiber, making this new and improved PB&J rendition a nutritious and tasty lunch box snack.
