Rock the Lunchbox: Back to School 2013: Giveaway and Review

School starts soon (next week for us!) and we'll be back to thinking about those school lunches made at home.

Honest Tea is teaming up with Annie’s, Organic Valley, and Stonyfield (YoKids) for back to school to help make lunches easier on parents everywhere. Making lunches daily can be a daunting , tasksearching for healthier options that kids will actually eat is a challenge!  They've created a site called “Rock the Lunchbox” where parents can find inspiration and ideas for what to pack for school lunch and how to make it fun for kids, too. While exploring ideas on the site, parents can also submit an idea of their own and download coupons from Honest Kids and their partner brands. I was asked to help spread the word about and share a couple of lunchbox ideas with you.

Packing your child's lunch can be challenging. Ask them what they'd like to have in their lunch and work around that. Choosing items they'll eat and like as well as being sure it holds over well until lunch time. Well, one way I try to make thier lunches fun so they're inspired to eat is to make the food fun. Cut out shapes of veggies, cheese, meats and even bread. Use a long toothpick/cocktail stick to skewer the foods onto (see mine below). Instead of bread that can turn soggy, try lavash bread or tortillas. Bagel sandwiches hold well too.

Get ready to go back to school with lunchbox ideas and coupons from brands including Honest Kids, Stonyfield Farm, Organic Valley and Annie’s Homegrown at

We were sent goodies/coupons from each company to include in our lunchbox creations. My Rock the Lunchbox entry for my kiddos include Annie’s Homegrown Fruit Snacks, Graham Cookies, Organic Valley Stringles, Stonyfield Farm YoKids Smoothie, squeezer and yogurt cup (either one for snack time) and an Honest Kids Berry Berry Good Lemonade. I also added in Bacon & Avocado Cream Cheese Rollups, fruit (melon and grapes), cheese (cheddar and mozzarella) and veggie (olives, cucumber and bell pepper) kabobs.
My kids must've missed my homemade school lunches because they exclaimed this was the best lunch ever! Summer lunches just aren't as creative I guess. ;)

Don't forget to pack lunch and a snack for yourself too! I made myself a veggie omelette & ham rollup along with fruit and veggies on a stick. A great gluten free brunch kind of lunch along with a 
Stonyfield Farm YoKids Smoothie and yogurt cup and an Honest Kids Berry Berry Good Lemonade.

My kids would enjoy all of this, but I would say they would pick Annie’s Homegrown Fruit Snacks as their #1 pick.
