Every so often, I’ll be browsing Pinterest or reading blog posts and I’ll get it in my mind that I need to DO BETTER. I need to be doing more crafts, I need to be cutting off screen time more but most importantly, I need to be making all the food homemade, preferably organic and in the shapes of different animals and superheroes. Before Hayden started first grade, I spent HOURS researching kids lunch ideas. I spent tons of money buying lunches supplies like fancy lunchboxes, cookie cutters and more. I even dedicated a Pinterest board to all of my fun lunch finds.
All of this motivation lasted pretty much less than a month. My son was coming home not eating any of these fancy lunches. That’s when I decided to KEEP IT SIMPLE. There’s nothing to prove to my son, myself or the lunch ladies. Give my son healthy food that he likes not in the shapes of animals and I’m saving my sanity!
Do you suffer from passionate lunchmaking too? Check out the video below and see how easy it is to just let it go and keep thing simple.
For both my son’s lunches and being on-the-go with my twins, I love Mott’s® Snack & Go Applesauce Pouches – and my kids do too! The pouches let you keep things simple in the fact that you just toss in a lunchbox or bag and just GO. It’s also simple in the fact that it’s not messy and includes simple ingredients. Mott’s® Snack & Go Strawberry, Natural and Original applesauce pouches are an excellent source of Vitamin C and the Mott’s® Snack & Go Natural and Strawberry applesauce pouches have no sugar added.
Whether we are on the go or at home, Mott’s® Snack & Go applesauce pouches are MY go-to snack for my kids. Every day, they ask for an applesauce pouch and know that they can look in our kitchen cabinet or in my bag to get the fruit fill.
If you have an active lifestyle with your family and you’re always on-the-go, you might be worried about your kids getting healthy snacks when being so busy. Try stocking your car or bag with Mott’s Snack & Go® applesauce pouches – available in Strawberry, Natural and Original – and you’ll love knowing that your kids are getting real fruit goodness in a fun, portable pouch.
