In a few we will be gearing up to go back to school and it will be back to the grind of packing lunches everyday, however the past 2 weeks the kids have been at day camp and I have been packing their lunches. Summer time lunch packing is different then school lunch packing. First it is HOT so I have to make sure the kids have foods like fruit and applesauce that will not add extra heat to them and that are not heavy foods because they end up not eating them.
With day camp they have 4 different classes that they go to, so there is no designated lunch time and the kids eat when they are hungry. This means that they are sometimes eating on the go in the classroom or in between classes. Things like apples and pretzels have been a big hit in the lunch boxes. I was contacted by Jif to test out the individually sized 1.5oz Jif To Go cups , and we found that they are great for dipping all of fruits and vegetables, anytime, anywhere. They are available in convenient 3 or 8 count packages, and they are the perfect size for putting in the lunch box! Jif To Go is a great snack to keep you moving throughout the day, add a baggie of things the kids can dip and you have some happy kiddos! They go great with the on the go eating the kiddos are doing at summer camp!
We have about a month left of summer and the kids are just about done with summer camp and so we will be heading out on some fun adventures like hiking, going to the local waterfalls, a trip to Long Beach Island and a few other things and snacks are much needed on our day trips! We will be bringing Jif To Go cups along with our celery, apples and pretzels so we are making sure we eat healthy snacks! I am so glad that peanut butter does not affect my stomach and I can eat it with out worrying about my tummy issues acting up! So it is an even bigger win, tasty healthy snack and I know it won’t ruin the day by making me sick!
And as you can see by Tom’s hand in the photo, even he can’t wait to dig in! Trying to photograph the Jif To Go cups and fighting off a hungry hubby is just a taste of what I deal with when there is peanut butter around!
With 5 different flavors we can also add some variety to our snacking, however there is not much that tastes better then a pretzel dipped in the Chocolate Peanut butter, well unless you are my son he says everyone needs to have celery with peanut butter and raisins (gotta have the Ants on a log!)
