With my daughter entering kindergarten in the fall, I must now add “pack a lunch” to my list of duties–something that is clearly not my forté. So at least I know that in a pinch, I’ve got the GoPicnic kids Mighty Munch meals to turn to. These are a smart, healthy alternative to the more mainstream (i.e. nitrate-laden) complete kids’ box lunches out there, featuring natural foods and snacks – no refrigeration necessary – plus utensils. Even a temporary tattoo. Because what meal is not complete without tattoos?
We’re personal fans of the Aqua Lunch (pictured), which could suit vegetarian, Kosher folks, and foodies alike. It includes Sunbutter instead of PB, Bonne Maman strawberry jam (yum), all-natural apple sauce and more. If you’ve got a gluten-allergic kiddo, try the yummy Sports or Explore Munch. At just $5.99 a meal, they’re more than whipping out the Costco-size tubs of peanut butter and jelly, but not a fortune.
Even if you’re particularly adept at packing lunches, don’t cross these off your list. They’re fantastic for plane rides, or road trips where fast food joints are your only option. Considering what goes into each box, you could safely call GoPicnic lunches the real happy meals. -Kristen
