When this school year started, we didn’t have a need for lunch packing. We homeschool, so lunch usually means pulling leftovers from the fridge. In years past, we’ve had various classes around town that would make packing lunch a necessity. But that wasn’t the plan for this year.
Until a couple of weeks ago, that is. Things don’t always go the way we plan them, do they? After a lot of planning, detouring, praying and plotting I finally stumbled on a program that works great for my kids.
We’re still homeschooling, but we’re doing it with the addition of some classes that they attend two days a week. However, they don’t go on the same days. Isaac is out of the house on Mondays and Wednesdays and Mia goes Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Did I mention that it takes about 45 minutes to drive over to the classes? Yep. My own personal seat is becoming shaped like the car seat. But it’s all worth it!
This change also means that at least one lunch is getting packed each day. So when Applegate HALF TIME™ asked me if I wanted to try their new Applegate Organics’ HALF TIME™ Lunch Kits I jumped at the chance.
Each lunch kit is made up of the trusted Organic and Natural brands (Applegate, Stonyfield & Annie’s). The kids like these brands, so lunch is a treat for them. (And no bringing home half eaten sandwiches complaining of soggy bread. Do your kids do this?)
Applegate HALF TIME™ lunches come in three varieties – Turkey and Cheese, Ham and Cheese and Bologna and Cheese. The meats are all humanely raised with no preservatives, nitrites or nitrates. You can find HALF TIME™ lunches at Target, BJ’s, and Safeway. A product locator can be found here.
