It’s that time again. Time to get into the habit of packing lunch again. Packing a a lunch—whether for your child or for yourself—almost always saves you money, and it also gives you more control over what you’re eating. Don’t worry, lunches don’t have to look “traditional,” you can make lunch out of pretty much whatever nutritious combo of foods you have around. The key is to get something from each food group in there. There’s no rule that prohibits constructing a lunch out of a wide variety of nibbles all assembled together like a mini buffet. There’s no rule that says you can’t have breakfast foods at lunch. There’s no rule that says you have to purchase milk at school—you can totally bring your own! If you need inspiration and ideas, check out the “Five Lunch Needs and 50 Ways To Please” resource on the Horizon website.
I encourage my kids to have milk at each meal, and water in between. I let them have chocolate milk, too, thought not at each meal. Taking milk from home to school is easy with single-serve, shelf-stable containers. Earlier this year Horizon Organic introduced shelf-stable Single Serve Milks in chocolate and vanilla, each with 32mg DHA Omega-3s. These new milk boxes provide consumers with all of the same nutritious benefits of organic DHA omega-3 milk, but in a single serving milk box that is shelf-stable, meaning it doesn’t require refrigeration. These are the first on-the-go milk product enhanced with 32 mg DHA omega-3 to come to market. DHA omega-3 is a long-c
hain omega-3 fatty acid that has been studied for its role in supporting healthy brain development, among other things. These are a great option for lunch boxes, after-care snacks, for snacks at the ball field, field trips and other times when you want the nutritious benefits of milk in a portable package.
