Colorful Lunches Make Back-to-School Time Fun! Rock the Lunch Box Giveaway

*This is a sponsored post in cooperation Rock the Lunch Box brands Organic Valley, Stonyfield and others, bringing you yummy content plus a giveaway!

Kids want fun, festive food for their school lunches!  Parents want ideal nutrition and perhaps even made-from-scratch foods. Reality is, we will all have mornings, days, weeks when we just don’t have enough time and we need something prepackaged.  Our family is participating in the Rock the Lunch Box program again this year as we get inspired to create colorful lunches with real, colorful food, including some real convenience food.

Strawberries Egg CU

I asked my oldest daughter to use her artistic skills to describe her dream lunch for school.  She had a couple of interestingly sugary ideas that she knew I wouldn’t go for.  I did put fresh, red strawberries in this lunch for her.  Plus, the Half Time kit that I included for convenience has Annie’s gummy bunnies made with real fruit juice, no artificial colors and less sugar than the lollipop she drew.

I’m pretty frugal, so I tend to create things like cracker and cut-deli-meat kits myself.  However, this new Half Time concept seems like a great choice for parents who need things prepackaged and ready to eat. Because it’s from Applegate, I can be sure the meat wasn’t created with antibiotics or growth hormones. I already know my kids love Stonyfield organic Squeezers.

My daughter is always needing a filling lunch, as she burns lots of calories with sports.  So, I added extra protein to this school lunch with a hard-boiled egg and some red kidney beans.  The Annie’s cheddar bunny mix can add some filling carbohydrates. Fresh red leaf lettuce and fruit, as well as Organic Valley milk round out a meal.  Perhaps she can save the organic purple plum or some bunny crackers for an after-school snack.

HalfTime Lunch FSM

We’re striving to save time by keeping our Bento, U-Konserve and Blue Avocado ReZip containers all in one drawer, where even the kids can reach them to pack their own lunches.

An additional lunch combination we prepared super fast was a simple turkey and lettuce sandwich with Rudi’s gluten free bread, plus bunny crackers, string cheese and a container of vegetables.  My kids love the blueberry flavored YoKids Squeezer as part of a meal or a snack on its own.  I like that it’s organic and has a straightforward ingredient list.

    Sliced carrot, celery and red bell peppers are always a hit. Barley salad is super healthy too and travels well. The kids adore it!
