Besides making supper the other daily task that never ends and does my head in is preparing lunch boxes and snacks for my kids. I can never seem to come up with enough healthy options. I aim for a sandwich on brown bread with a healthy spread – peanut butter is my fail safe! Then I try to add a fruit of some sort and something else…. maybe some cheese, nuts, yoghurt sticks – It gets difficult to stick to healthy options especially when some of the items you think are good, like mini rice cakes, are filled with flavourants that are most definitely NOT good! It’s tough and I could definitely do with some inspiration in this area! What do you pop into the lunch boxes??
A product which I recently came across that is a great addition to my lunch box goodies stash is Fruit Pack Fruit Pack is a 100% natural fruit puree snack for kids from the age of 10 months +. It’s a perfect size for little hands to feed themselves and the design means there are no straws to fuss with – your kids can even drink these in the car without worrying about messing. They are small enough to stash into mom’s handbag and can be resealed and saved for later in the day. They taste delicious especially when partly frozen – a portable mini smoothie – a great option for lunch boxes as it ticks the fruit, juice and “something interesting” categories! The bonus is that it contains no preservatives, no colourants, no flavourants, and no added sugar and full of fibre. No nasty stuff, just pure fruit.
There are 3 flavours: Awesome Apple, Apple & Pear and Strawberry & Banana. Fruit Pack is available in 90g pouches, which retail at R9.95 each and 4-packs (containing 4 x 90g pouches per flavour), which retail at R38.95 each. Currently it’s available at over 180 retailers across SA including Spar, Wellness Warehouse, Baby City and most recently Dis-Chem. It’s also available in Mauritius.
I am giving away 2 hampers of Fruit Pack products!
Each hamper is worth R120 and consists of a Awesome Apple, Apple & Pear and Strawberry & Banana 4-pack, plus stickers and tattoos for the kids. That’s you sorted for a few weeks of lunch box treats!
