Healthy Lunchbox Ideas

Mia has a book called Samantha’s Silly-icious Sandwiches. Samantha gets sick of having the same boring sandwich in her lunch everyday and decides to create her own unique sandwiches. Her “Silly-icious Sandwiches” turn into a hit at school and a booming business, which she soon hands over for her mom to run. Typical kid.

It’s a cute book, but after reading it I started to think about how boring packed lunches can be. Most parents opt for the PB&J with pre-packaged sides. It’s easy, but might not be the healthiest or most fun.

Over at Produce for Kids, we have a whole slew of packable lunchbox ideas for parents in the online recipe bank.They are easy! I promise.

I visited the Life, Love, Shopping studios here in Orlando a few weeks ago to demonstrate two of my  fave lunches from Produce for Kids. Check it out.

Healthy Desserts

As many of you know, I work full-time as pr manager for Produce for Kids. With every new campaign, our chef and RD work together to create new meals. Our Ideal Meals online database is  full of healthy (yet tasty) easy breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner options for busy parents (like myself).

My time with Produce for Kids has completely changed the way I view food and prepare food for my family. I’ve always been a healthy eater, but I have more of a method behind my madness these days.

Check out this clip of Mia and I creating Healthy Snacks on Galtime Orlando. These are just two of our new Ideal Meals healthy desserts!

Look for the Produce for Kids display in select grocery stores nationwide through July and help local children’s hospitals! For my local readers, the Publix campaign runs through June 28.
