I still can’t comprehend that it’s back to school shopping time already. Didn’t the summer just start yesterday? It would seem that way.
Some kids are returning to school in just a couple of weeks. At least my son has another month before he has to return to school. I believe my daughter (who is in college) returns around the same time.
I don’t often make my son’s lunch for school anymore. He chooses to make his own. This coming school year, depending on how his schedule works out, he might be home for lunch.
I do make things easy for him when it comes to packing a lunch. I make sure he has plenty of options including fresh fruits and vegetables and snacks. Even if he ends up eating lunch at home (which he often does) I still like to make sure he has plenty of options. That pertains to my daughter as well. Normally she’s home for lunch in between her classes and her job.
The brand Good Health has some snack options you might want to consider.
My kids LOVE Veggie Straws and Veggie Chips. They have been enjoying them for many years.
I like the Veggie Straws and Chips from Good Health because they are made with no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no hydrogenated oils and zero trans fat. In addition they are made with ingredients I can actually pronounce and understand what they are. Another words… I know what my kids are eating.
These are actually made with vegetables – tomatoes, spinach, beets, broccoli and carrots. Personally I don’t really taste the veggies, per say. I just know them as yummy, crunchy treats. My husband says he can taste the veggies, and for that reason he won’t eat them. His loss! That means more for the rest of us.
Good Health knows that not all kids are open to eating snacks made out of vegetables. Some parents have a hard enough time as it is getting their kids to eat vegetables. I’m fortunate that my kids have always loved vegetables. Even as young children they would eat thing like broccoli and spinach.
If your little ones are a bit reluctant to eat their veggies, Good Health has a snack option you might want to look into. It’s the same yummy veggie treats that they already make, but these ones are made to look like Mickey Mouse.
They are the same flavors as their other veggies chips/straws, but they are done in a fun, child-friendly Mickey Mouse shape. These are sure to be a hit with the little ones (and not so little ones – my teens love them).
Good Health has other better-for-you snack options including Half Bake Popcorn (popcorn air popped with only a touch of flavoring), Popped Chips (popped – NOT baked or fried – chips) and something I really want to try, Apple Crisps. Good Health has other snacks option as well.
These are snacks you can feel good offering to your kids. They are a better-for-you option than (fried) chips, cookies and candy. Save those kinds of snacks for special occasions.
The new Mickey Mouse shaped veggie snacks, and other Good Health snacks, can be found at many retail locations across the country. There is a location finder (“Where to Buy“) on the Good Health website too.
For more information about these and other Good Health snacks visit GoodHealthSnacks.com (that is easy enough to remember). The brand is also found on Facebook and Pinterest (the links are found on the top right of their website site).
