A variety of lunch options for Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods
It’s back to school time! Pull out your trusty backpack, fill it with your new school supplies, grab your lunch and start a new year. But for me, the lunch packing gets old pretty quick and I’ve got the lunch box blahs! To combat the blahs this year I have decided my kids need to pack their own lunch. To make sure this endeavor is successful I need to help provide balanced nutritious items for them to pack
Taking a page from our summer picnics I looked at the variety of offerings from Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods to help maximize my options and save me a little time.
Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods offers a large selection of precut fruits and vegetables that help make packing a snap.
White House rolls are a staple. This is the perfect do it yourself lunch item for kids. They can pack 1, 2, or 3 little rolls and make a sandwich to order. My kids don’t like their stuff to get soggy so we precut the rolls and then load all the fillings in a separate container.
I’m not against a sweet treat and the perfect dessert is Ukrop’s mini cookies. There are the staples, rainbow, chocolate chip and butter star, but my kids love the chewy ginger cookies! The kids feel are excited to have a treat and I can easily portion control.
And all of these precut treats and perfect portions make it easy for the kids to help themselves to a healthy afternoon snack.
