When my daughter started Kindergarden, I searched the Internet for ideas about what to send her for lunch. For a brief moment I toyed with the idea of creating fancy shapes and gourmet lunches with cute food art. The Pinterest pictures were so cute. I scrolled through hundreds of adorable ideas. And then I came to my senses — food art? That is way too complicated for an everyday lunch — way too complicated.
A few weeks into school, reality set in. Making a simple packed lunch everyday was hard enough — no way would I ever manage a fancy lunch. Who has time for that? Not this mom. And if you feel the same way, you will love this parody from The Moms.
I gave up packing lunch. Totally gave up, and passed the baton to my husband. Yep, I went from visions of cute food art, to packing basic lunches, to totally passing off the responsibility. True story.
And for our youngest, she eats a lot of lunches on the go. On the go, as in sitting in the car. Lunch looks like this:
So that’s life in my house. No fancy lunches, just the basics. My kids don’t even eat sandwiches (by choice BTW). But everyone is happy and well-fed, even if no one will be pinning their lunches as examples.
But let’s talk about the treat in my girls’ lunches that makes both mom and kids happy — Mott’s Snack & Go.
Mott’s Snack & Go
My kids (and I) have always been applesauce fans. But applesauce on-the-go used to be a recipe for disaster. It meant a disposable spoon for lunch at school and a complete no-no for lunch in car. Thanks to Mott’s Snack & Go, applesauce goes everywhere with us.
Made with real fruit, Mott’s Snack & Go is an excellent source of vitamin C. Mott’s Snack Go is available in three varieties: Mott’s® Snack & Go Strawberry applesauce pouches, Mott’s® Snack & Go Natural applesauce pouches and Mott’s® Snack & Go Original applesauce pouches.
Mott’s® Snack & Go Strawberry applesauce pouches and Mott’s® Snack & Go Natural applesauce pouches have no HFCS or sugars added, which makes me feel good about giving them to my daughters any time. Plus did you notice Mott’s Snack & Go is part of the Box Tops for Education program? Another reason to love them!
If you are a fancy-lunch-making mom, good for you.
If you are a lunch-on-the-go mom, good for you.
If you are a lunch-packing-dad, good for you.
Regardless of your lunch-prepping style, Mott’s Snack & Go is a quick and easy addition to lunch that makes everyone happy.
