School is almost in and one of the things on my mind is making sure that my kids are eating healthy. I have teamed up with King Soopers to come up with some healthy, fun lunches. For this challenge I have decided to use shapes and had so much fun putting these cute lunches together.
I went to my local King Soopers to buy a week’s worth of food to make some healthy lunches and was happy that almost all of the items that I planned on purchasing were on sale. Not only do they have great sales, but be sure to visit their coupon page on their website before you shop. I saved over $15 on this shopping trip so not only are these lunches healthy and fun, they’re economical!
The best find was this kit that was perfect for packing lunches. There are 4 different sized compartments and a cooler pack that fits right in the middle. I have always felt that my school lunch creativity was restricted because some things need to stay cool, but that’s no longer a problem with Lunch Blox. Best of all, this was on sale for $5.99!
In addition to the Sandwich Kit I purchased all of this yummy food to create my lunches:
Approximate cost: $1.88
I cut some fruit into circles and put them on a toothpick to also match the colors of the rainbow. In addition I sliced a mozzarella stick (that you can buy in singles for 25 cents) so they were in a circle shape.
I also found some Oroweat sandwich rounds to make a circle shaped peanut butter and honey sandwich and added some Kroger raisins.
Approximate cost: $2.25
To create a lunch of squares I found these Kroger waffle pretzels and Cascadian Farm organic kid sized granola bars cut into thirds to make them into small squares.
In addition to the pretzels and granola bar I cut some cantaloupe into squares, cut a (formerly round) peanut butter and jelly sandwich into small squares and added an organic milk that were on sale for $1 each.
Approximate cost: $2.53
Finally, I wanted to make some triangles. I sliced some pickle spears, cut strawberries into a pyramid shape and sliced them, folded a Kroger yogurt tube in a sort of triangular shape, and cut a tuna fish sandwich like a pizza to create triangles. Remember, with the super cool Lunch Blox you can now send mayonnaise!
My kids got a kick out of this idea and loved their lunch! The only downfall is that I may not be able to ever give them a plain peanut butter and jelly sandwich again. But that’s okay since these lunches were very easy to make.
Now King Soopers would like to give you the opportunity to make your own fun lunches this school year with a $25 gift card!
