It’s that time of year again! School is officially back in session for most area kids, and one of the most common dilemmas for parents is what to pack in those lunch boxes. Picky eaters aside, it’s tough to figure out what to send that is not only yummy, but HEALTHY! Food is fuel, and what our kids put into their bodies determines how well they function during the day.
I’m a big fan of the 100 Days of Real Food blog and highly recommend you spending some time in the Kids’ Lunches section for food inspiration for this school year. The blog has some delicious, healthy options made from real ingredients—no processed anything! Feel good about what you pack for your kids!
Norwex has a few products that are essential for greening up your lunches. The two-sided Veggie and Fruit Scrub Cloth is perfect for scrubbing and polishing fruit and veggies. The rough side is for scrubbing, and the smooth side is for polishing. This cloth is highly effective for removing dirt, waxes, and debris. Your kids’ fruit and veggies will shine!
Clean fresh fruits and vegetables naturally with our Fresh Produce Wash. It’s a plant-based, biodegradable concentrate that effectively removes unwanted chemical residue from fertilizers, wax, dirt, oil, and bacteria. The all-natural formula contains no phosphates, sulfates or parabens so you can feed your family without worry. Plus, it extends the shelf life of fruits and vegetables, and it maintains their aroma and flavor.
The Out to Lunch Sandwich Wrap is great for sandwiches, small subs, and other munchies! The wrap features a Velcro strip to make sure food always stays snug with less air inside. At lunchtime, it unfolds to make a friendly place mat. Clean-up is easy—simply shake any crumbs into the trash, wipe with a damp cloth, and air dry.
The Out to Lunch Snack Bag is a must as well! The Snack Bag is ideal for toting pretzels, fruit, veggies, cheese, crackers and other finger food. With it’s easy velcro closure everyone in the family will want their own! Both the Out to Lunch Wrap and Out to Lunch Snack Bag are certified not to leach and free of harmful chemicals. They’re a great alternative to plastic wrap and baggies. FREE of BPA, PHTHALATES, PVC and LEAD! Both of these are staples in our house!
