Eating Right Kids Has the Right Idea...10:06 PM
My kids are homeschooled, so we don't "pack" lunches very often. They do get a kick out of single-serving sized foods, however. Who doesn't? On days when we run all over, like to snack in the park, or I just forget to cook anything worthwhile, we enjoy foods that other parents would pack into a lunchbox.
We recently got the opportunity to try a new line of Looney Toons inspired eats from Safeway, called Eating Right Kids. Here's the skinny on what my kids loved about the stuff (and why I may consider it in the future.)
- The pasta cups were not very salty, sugary, or (in my opinion) flavorful. This, for some reason, was exactly what my kids loved about them. Whole wheat, cheesy raviolis in a mild tomato sauce were easily microwaved for a quick snack. There was a surprising amount of pasta in each cup!
- The granola bars were lightly dipped in chocolate, but had a strong fruit flavor that went over really well with my sugar-bug. (My youngest son is geared for sweets, and these were nutritionally sound, while tasting like a dessert.)
- The juice was.. well, like any other apple juice. In a convenient single serving container, all 3 kids fought over it, drank it up, and barely noticed the characters on the packaging :)
