Hi friends! We’re full on in Back to School mode over here and I have to tell you, we have found our new favorite drink on the go – Vita Coco Kids naturally fruit flavored coconut water! Talk about kid-tested, mother-approved. I was going over school lunch options with the boys this week and they couldn’t get past the drinks! Once they had their fill, we discussed the nitty gritty and came up with a few kid-approved Back to School Lunch Ideas!
Deli Roll-Ups. Now these are a classic, aren’t they? Lunch meat, cheese and mustard and you can call it a day! With my boys we tried out a few combinations of meat, mustards and cheeses to mix it up and have some fun. The winner was turkey, swiss and dijon, though your kids might like a different combo! Add a couple of pickle spears for crunchy goodness and some fresh blueberries for dessert. The boys thought the Vita Coco Kids Very Cherry Beach would go best with this meal. They have great taste!
Mini Quesadillas. Now I don’t know about you, but in Arizona we can’t get enough of our Mexican food, so perhaps quesadillas is one you haven’t thought of before! They can be as simple as cheese and mini tortillas heated up and cut into wedges like we have here. Or you can add veggies and other goodies to spice it up a bit. Now you have to add a side of chips and salsa with this tasty lunch. For this one, we thought Vita Coco Kids Paradise Punch would fit the bill.
Classic PB&J. It may be cliche, but my boys LOVE their PB&J! If your school is PB-free, simply swap out for some almond butter, equally as delicious! We paired the PB&J bites with some simple rice pudding and Vita Coco Kids Apple Island. YUM!
At the end of the day your kids can be very helpful in deciding their lunchtime meals! They know what they like to eat and you know how to get all the nutrients in that you need to. Of equal importance is hydration! That’s where Vita Coco Kids is KEY. Vita Coco Kids naturally flavored coconut water is both nutritious and delicious! It’s low on sugar and calories, but big on flavor. Free of artificial colors, sweetners, flavors and preservatives, Vita Coco Kids is the real deal: jam-packed with natural electrolytes that keep your little ones hydrated and quench their thirst!
And the proof is here. Vita Coco Kids was handpicked by Target for the “Made to Matter” program! And it only took one sip for us to know our kids loved it. They ask for it everyday. And it’s a much better option than box juices, don’t you think? So pick up some Vita Coco Kids today and incorporate them into your Back to School Lunch Ideas like we did! Your kids will love you for it, and you’ll be happy with your choice!
