My girls were so excited about the lunch menu today. They’ve been telling me for a few days that “It’s breakfast for lunch, Mom!” Seriously. Today’s school lunch menu was French toast, syrup, turkey sausage, juice and a banana. Previewing the September lunch menu, I see a similar ‘breakfast for lunch’ day with pancakes, syrup, turkey sausage, juice, strawberries and bananas. When the girls got home from school, I asked them how lunch was and it was a resounding “Delicious!”As silly as it sounds, it’s actually more nutritious than some of the stuff I pack in their lunches. I’m cautious about what I pack, trying to provide a mix of healthy with the occasional brownie. Which makes me second guess something that happened a few weeks ago…
I received a package of Honey Kix cereal to try out. We decided to enjoy Honey Kix for breakfast one day and Miss K said she really liked it. In the meantime, she was quite inquisitive about the other items that came along with it. The kit (shown below) contained a travel bowl with built in spoon and a freeze-ahead module for keeping the milk cold. She asked what it was for and I explained that it’s for taking cereal with you when you go somewhere. Well, Miss M and Miss K decided that they did, indeed, want to take along some cereal. For lunch. In their lunchbox. Instead of a sandwich. I hemmed and hawed and said it’s more for when you’re traveling.But they were persistent. And it got me thinking. Milk is good for them and cereal, like Honey Kix, is whole grain. If I pack some grapes or a banana with it – or maybe a piece of ham for protein – then what do I have to lose? If they are excited about it and willing to eat it, that’s the important part.
The Prize: Honey Kix Prize Pack (includes a coupon for a free box of cereal, a honey jar, a set of colorful cereal bowls, a container to take your cereal and milk on-the-go, and a great container to keep cereal fresh at home.)
