Can you believe summer is winding down, and school will be starting again?! While I love seeing the girls go off to school, and learning new things and making new friends, one thing I used to dread was making lunch for 3 picky eaters! This year, we are going back-to-school with Danimals to make packing lunch a breeze!
In our pantry, we have a “mom-approved” foodbin, where the girls can pick their own food for during the school day! Addy and London each get 2 food items, while Peyton has moved on to 3rd grade, and gets one. This system has worked for us for the last 2 years, and makes our mornings less hectic. I can focus on breakfast, and they can independently pick their food. I am incorporating that philosophy this year for lunches!
I really want to feed our kids independence and individuality, and that includes allowing them to pick their favorite lunchtime snacks! This can be tough, with picky eaters, though, because I want to make sure I’m also helping them learn to make smart food choices.. Danimals is great for kids, since kids love the taste, but it’s more nutritious than other options!
One thing we can ALL agree on is Danimals! The girls LOVE Danimals Smoothies & Danimals Squeezeables, and they come in a variety of flavors.
They’re “mom approved” as a nutritious & delicious option for back-to-school. By keeping Danimals Squeezables and Danimals Smoothies in stock in the fridge, the girls have smart options for their lunchboxes, and it helps fuel their independence, since they’re the ones making the choice to pack it! Did you know Danimals Smoothies are a good source of calcium and Vitamin D?
And here’s a little mom hack for you: you can freeze Danimals Squeezables overnight and add to your kids lunchboxes, they’ll thaw by lunch time, but still stay nice and cold! We love these for Adaline, since they are a mess-free and great for on the go!
Danimals Smoothies & Danimals Squeezeables are a delcious snack that is sure to keep both kids & moms smiling, and that’s why we are heading back-to-school with Danimals!
