We all want our kids to eat a little more vegetables, right? As a parent I’m always looking for new ways to add more vegetables into my family’s diet. I was recently sent the Green Giant Veggie Tots to try out and I’m pretty impressed. These poppable veggie snacks only require a few minutes in the oven to prepare making them a simple way to add veggies to any meal. We are a homeschooling family so I typically prepare both lunch and dinner from scratch on most days. I like the option of having these in the fridge for those really busy days where I really can’t spend more than a few minutes in a kitchen preparing a meal. All I have to do is heat and they are ready to eat. My husband loved the broccoli and cheese flavor that we tried, I like that they are a healthier alternative to traditional tots.

When I think of my childhood lunches, I remember loving peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. My favorite way to enjoy a peanut butter and jelly sandwich has always been with the crust off. The Advance Pierre PB Jamwich is not only a kid favorite but an adult favorite as well. These perfectly crustless peanut butter and jelly sandwich are life-savers to have on hand in your freezer. They are super simple to grab and go when you are in a rush to get out the door. They are also the perfect companion on field trip days. Pack them frozen in the morning and by the time lunch rolls around it will be thawed and ready to eat. With two flavor combinations, strawberry or grape jelly, there is sure to be an Advance Pierre PB Jamwich your family will love.
Have you ever seen Sensible Portions Garden Veggie Straws in the store and wonder if they taste good?

Available in flavors like Sea Salt and Zesty Ranch, these individual portioned bag multipacks make for an ideal lunchbox snack. I’m definitely adding these to my grocery list to have on hand for my boys when they are craving a crunchy snack.
I know I’ve mentioned before how I am not much of a morning person. Early mornings have never really been my thing. My boys both have early morning classes that require their attendance, so when it comes to breakfast it is always something quick and simple at our house. Whether it’s cereal, granola bar, or something I’ve baked the night before the one requirement I have when it comes to breakfast is that it has to be quick to grab and portable.

They are easy to throw in a bag or pack in a lunchbox for a small baked snack when you are short on time.

What if you are on-the-go when hunger strikes? What do you typically do? I always have some sort of protein bar in my purse in case someone gets hungry while we are out and about.

These RXBARs are a healthy packaged snack that anyone can throw in their purse or bookbag for those just in case moments. RXBAR is made with simple ingredients so much so that just reading the label you’ll only find clean whole foods in them like egg whites, fruits, and nuts.
