Thank you to Revolution Foods for sponsoring this post. Read on for a giveaway to help you take your own lunch making break!
I’ve been packing lunches for one or both of my kids for eight years now. EIGHT YEARS.
How many years? Eight.
That’s a lot of lunches, man. Thousands in fact. Over all, it’s one of the daily tasks I most enjoy. I like coming up with new ideas for things to put in my boys’ lunch boxes, choosing nutritious foods for them and making their lunches fun.
…Except when I don’t. Like the mornings when I wake up late. Or the mornings when a trip to the grocery store is way overdue. Or the mornings when the bickering is out of control and all of my attention is focused on getting shoes on feet and homework in backpacks before someone is crying. (That someone might be me, for the record.) On those mornings I just want a break from the lunch thing. School lunch is an option, but it’s a last resort. We are not in a school district that makes beautiful organic lunches from vegetables the children have grown by hand. Not even close.
On those crazy mornings, I’d like something really easy to put in a lunch bag. I’d also like something my kids are excited to eat and that I’m comfortable giving them. Revolution Foods’ Jet Packs hit all those criteria. They feature the familiar meat, cheese, cracker and treat combos (and a third popcorn chicken and pretzel combo that my kids went nuts over) that you find in most lunch packs but without all the other yucky stuff that show up in the other kits. Their meat is raised with no antibiotics, the cheese is actual cheese and there are no artificial flavors or preservatives in any of the foods. Basically, these are the sorts of lunches I pack for my kids — using the same ingredients I use — but without any work for me. The packs are all around 300 calories and they include at least 10g of protien.
The company was founded by moms (who are local to me) who are on a mission to transform the way America eats by providing access to healthy food in schools and in stores. You can learn more about Revolution Foods, their products and their mission by visiting: www.revolutionfoods.com.
I found Jet Packs in the lunch kit section of my neighborhood Safeway (that’s them on the shelf, right up there), but they are also available at other grocery stores such as Vons, Shaws, Publix, Walmart and Whole Foods. You can find a store close to you by going to the Revolution Foods retail locator page.
