Winter break is over and we are getting back into our normal school and work routines. It took a few days for us to prep for sending our kiddo to school and getting everything organized for a smooth transition. The holidays are so fun but they really knock you off your schedule!
One thing that helps us save time in the mornings and takes a little stress off our weekly schedule is meal planning. I keep a list of our favorite family meals as well as lunch ideas. It makes it so much easier to pull together a grocery list and plan out school lunches for the week.
On our last Walmart run we picked up Sun-Maid® Sour Raisin Snacks in the dried fruit section. Raisins are a snack we all love so I always keep them on hand for an easy grab-and-go snack. These come in strawberry or watermelon flavor and taste delicious!
Cutting back on sugar is also something that’s important when I shop for the foods we eat. Sun-Maid® Sour Raisin Snacks are a kid-craved, mom-approved snack you can feel good about giving your family. They’re made with whole fruits, no added sugar, non-GMO, gluten-free, and no synthetic colors. I love that they’re also allergen-friendly so they make a great classroom snack to share.
Our lunch box list includes foods that are simple to prepare and easy to keep on hand. I like to shop for a few of our favorite fresh fruits and veggies as well as pantry goods I can keep in stock for making lunches or afterschool snacks. Bananas, berries, apples, baby carrots, and oranges are great options as well as fruit cups, applesauce, and Sour Raisin Snacks. A few more items on my list: crackers, chips, bagels, pita bread, yogurt, hummus, string cheese, turkey, meatballs and chicken nuggets.
Here are five of our go-to easy lunch box combos for school:
Turkey and Cheese Sandwich bites with apples, cheese crackers, and Sun-Maid® Strawberry Raisin Snacks
Pita chips and hummus with veggies and Strawberry Sun-Maid® Sour Raisin Snacks
