You can purchase the lunch products your kids love and do good too. Make a Sandwich, Lend a Hand! We are sharing several suggestions on how you can pack the perfect lunch.
Make PB & J
Kids love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! You can’t go wrong making lunch with PB&J with Jif Peanut Butter and Smucker’s Fruit Spread. I love the natural varieties, because they feature no preservatives and both products are Non-GMO Project Verified.
Use Reusable or Recyclable Containers
Making lunches everyday can easily add to a lot of waste, by using Bento Boxes and reusable containers you can help save the environment. My kids love the fact that the Bento Boxes keep their sandwiches from getting smashed. I also like how everything has it’s own spot so there is no need for separate bags for each food item.
I store the prepped containers in the refrigerator. The next morning all I need to do is make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and add them to the boxes. This makes packing lunches a breeze!
It’s fun to get a little creative with their lunch, there are so many fun ways you can serve PB&J. My kids really like these Jif Peanut Butter and Smucker’s Fruit Spread Kabobs. Simply make a PB&J sandwich and cut it into squares. Thread the squares onto skewers with some fruit. It’s a fun new way for the kids to enjoy PB&J.
Add a Note!
I know my kids enjoy finding a note in their lunchbox. It helps them to know they are loved and that you are thinking about them while they are at school. I don’t include the notes everyday. I like to add them when I know they have a test or when I think they need a little pick me up. I think it makes it special that way! I’ve created a full sheet of free printable lunch notes so you can easily print them out and include them in your child’s lunch too.
Don’t forget! It’s easy to share your lunch with the Boys & Girls Club of Minnesota. By purchasing your Jif Peanut Butter or Smucker’s Fruit Spreads at Target stores in Minnesota they will make a donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Minnesota. You can save 10% on both Jif Peanut Butter and Smucker’s Fruit Spread with the 10% off Target Cartwheel offer.
