I still have this idyllic concept that I’ll prepare everything from scratch each week for my kids’ lunches. I do make sure to pack fresh veggies and bake them homemade cookies when I can. The reality is, school days are busy — really busy, for the kids and for me! I love spending time giving them the attention they need, and being able to work from home.
Some mornings, we can be really rushed! Those are the days when I’m happiest to have a couple of Applegate HALF TIME kits in the refrigerator. For us, it’s not every school lunch. It might be once a week. I like to add the fresh veggies, of course, and an organic milk. My youngest thinks it’s fun to make “ants on a log” with her celery.
HALF TIME adds the fun of shaped lunch meats like turkey, ham or balogna with cheese and crackers that kids can use to build their own mini-sandwiches. If they’re going to eat lunchmeat, I prefer they have the Applegate level of quality with no artificial additives, preservatives or hormones.
What makes HALF TIME really fun for the kids is getting their favorite Stonyfield Organic Squeezers and a treat from Annie’s too!
