I am passionate about packing healthy, well balanced lunches for my kids. But there are those mornings when I wish there was a quick solution to lunch packing that was healthy and delicious. Because we all
wake up with a head cold sometimes have bad mornings sometimes and having a healthy lunch solution at hand can be a huge time saver!
This is why I am so excited that my favorite companies (Applegate, Annie's Homegrown and Stonyfield Organics) have teamed up to bring you HALF TIME - a lunch you can feel good about!
HALF TIME is available in 3 varieties:
- Turkey & Cheese
- Ham & Cheese, and
- Bologna & Cheese
All three varieties include Applegate Naturals meats, Annie's Homegrown Buttery Rich crackers, Stonyfield YoKids Squeezers Strawberry and either Annie's Homegrown fruit snacks or graham crackers.
So we put HALF TIME to the test (actually the hungry Tween test. One hungry 12 year old vs HALF TIME Ham and American Cheese):
I have to admit that I was not sure if this would be enough food to feed my 12 year old son for lunch. BUT, I was pleasantly surprised when he finished and told me that he loved it AND that it was enough for lunch! He loved making cracker stackers and with the yogurt and cookies he felt full but not weighed down. SUCCESS!
What we loved:
- made with organic and natural ingredients
- free of preservatives, artificial flavors or colors
- all animals are raised humanely and without antibiotics
- the combination of yogurt, fruit snack and crackers with meat and cheese
- includes familiar brands we already buy
- enough for a tween for lunch
What to keep in mind:
- it does not include a drink (this was NOT an issue for me since my kids carry a water bottle to school every day) but it might make a difference to you.
- the current price is about $5 at our local Target, so a little on the pricey side. I still think it is worth the extra money to have a healthy lunch in the fridge for a busy morning or a better to-go food for car trips, after school activities, field trips, museum outings or ball park visits.
Included in your prize package is everything pictured above:
- All three varieties of HALF TIME: Turkey & Cheese, Ham & Cheese, and Bologna & Cheese
- A draw-your-own lunch bag
- A set of permanent markers
- Activity book
Open to US addresses only. Winner will be notified via email and has 24 h to claim their prize before a new winner is drawn. Good luck!
