Now that my kids have been back in school for a few months, it is time to think about putting new items in their lunchboxes. My kids always start to get tired of the same old things in their lunches after a while. However, there are some great ideas and flavorful things to help give my kids some new yummy items during their schooldays. Nationally recognized nutritionist Elizabeth Somer and Horizon Organic, a leading organic dairy brand, collaborated to create a back-to-school resource called “5 Lunch Needs and 50 Ways to Please” that helps parents and kids make smart, nutritious lunch box choices. The easy-to-use tool outlines the 5 main food groups and 10 kid-approved lunch box ideas under each category. The idea is for kids and parents to use the tool together each week to pick and pack balanced lunches.
Horizon Organics bring you wholesome, nourishing organic foods. They make delicious organic products without GMO’s, artificial colors or flavors or high fructose corn syrup. Horizon offers a wide variety of nutritious, great-tasting dairy products including milk, cheese, butter, yogurt and more. Horizon has a milk line enhanced with DHA Omega‐3, an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health.
Introducing the first single-serve milk box with 32mg of DHA Omega-3!
DHA is a valuable nutrient that may help support the brain, heart and eyes. Now the whole family can enjoy our milk with DHA on-the-go in lunchboxes, snacks, traveling and more.
My kids have really enjoyed the Lowfat Chocolate Milk Box’s with DHA Omega-3. I received enough for a whole month however with both kids taking lunches that time was cut in half. As a mom, I really appreciate the health benefits that this chocolate milk offers for my kids.
The chocolate milk itself offers a nice chocolate flavor but nothing that is to rich. Conner really enjoyed the chocolate milk, as he is a huge fan of chocolate milk already. Dominique however is not a chocolate milk drinker but she actually enjoyed the Horizon Organic chocolate milk. The size of the chocolate milk boxes is the perfect size for my kid’s lunches. Another thing that the kids really liked is how the straws are retractable.
The idea of the 5 Lunch Needs and 50 Ways to Please is nice and has really helped us. It has been fun for my kids and me to come together for the week and find the meals that they like best. They do not even care that they are eating healthy because the foods that they are picking out they really like. This makes it easier for me to switch up their lunch boxes and give them different things to enjoy with their new Horizon Organic chocolate milk boxes.
