Back to School with Good Better Best-Part 1 Snacks

So the sweet boy started kindergarten last week and with that big change comes a whole new challenge for the Good Better Best household...the lunch box!  Even though the sweet boy is in full day kindergarten, for the first week they had all half days, so we needed snacks only last week. 

This got me thinking about all of the great snacks we can do in the Good Better Best way!

Here are ten ideas aka two school weeks worth:

-Cucumber slices with either organic ranch dressing or hummus.  The sweet boy brought farmers market cucumbers one day last week.
-Switch the granola bars to either organic or whole grain.  We like the Annie's brand.
-Yogurt makes a great lunch box snack...go organic.
-Whole grain crackers with cheese.
-Edamame...the sweet boy loves edamame and it is great for a lunch box snack.
-Cut up market or organic.
-Organic raisins and other dried fruit.
-Every kid loves Goldfish...they make cheddar ones that are whole grain...go for those they will never know the difference.
-Brown rice cake with either organic jelly or cheese.
-Get your calcium on with organic cheese sticks.

So those are just some ideas to start with.  Feel free to add ideas in the comment section below.

Speaking of lunch boxes, this time of year we are all trying to make sure that all of the fun lunch boxes, water bottles, school uniforms and new school clothes make it home.  The best way to do that is with the labeling products from Mabel's Labels.  I have tried labels from other companies and they either don't stick the first time or fall off after a week or so.  Not with Mabel's Labels they are fantastic products. 

I especially like the shoe labels which can be used for so much more than shoes.  They are waterproof and dishwasher safe for things like sandwich boxes, ice packs, water bottles etc.  They have all types of great labels for both home and school.  You can check them out at this link and get a special deal on the Ultimate Back to School combo.

Enjoy the Best lunch box!
