Did you know that National School Lunch week is THIS week (October 9-13)?  As parents we know that lunch time is a crucial time of day for nourishing and fueling young minds.  As important, however, is what parents pack to set their kids up for success.  I have a few favorites that I love sending with my kiddos and they are items that I consider absolute must-haves for school lunches.  Looking for a few good staple items to send your kids off with?  Here are 3 of my (and my children’s) favorites:

#1 AquaBall

If you have young children, chances are you already know what Aqua Ball is.  Aqua Ball drinks are my daughter’s favorite drink to take to school.  AquaBall’s naturally flavored water is the only zero-sugar, zero-calorie, zero-preservative children’s beverage around.  Available in four flavors and featuring fan favorite Disney and Marvel characters, AquaBall is not only fun for kids, but also smart for parents.

#2 Welch’s Fruit Rolls

Welch’s Fruit Rolls are the newest thing we’ve come across that my kids (and husband) absolutely love.  These super fun to eat fruit rolls deliver the same quality my family loves in Welch’s Fruit Snacks, in a new, irresistibly fun format.  Featuring fruit as its first ingredient, they come in three mouthwatering flavors: Berry, Tropical Punch, and White Grape Strawberry.  We’ve tried the Tropical Punch and Berry which were AMAZING, and now I’m on the hunt to try the White Grape Strawberry…that one sounds absolutely incredible!

#3 Go Organically Fruit Snacks

Go Organically Fruit Snacks are one of my favorites to send my kiddos off to school with.  These fruit snacks are USDA-certified organic, made with real fruit, GMO-free, gluten-free and preservative-free.  Even better, these tasty and smart snacks are only 70 calories for each individual pack, so no matter who you’re shopping for or what their dietary restrictions are (or lack thereof) everyone can enjoy these tasty treats.

I hope you and your kiddos try and love some or all of these snacks and let me know what you guys think of them!  They truly are favorites in our household whether it’s kids lunches or my husbands work lunch 🙂
