|My Kids Enjoy Schneiders at Lunchtime|
Although my kids are eating machines, I take a very balanced approach and try to offer them a good variety of foods. As I type, my kitchen is bursting with all kids of fruits, veggies, legumes, milk and milk products, breads and grains, fish and seafood products...and lots of other good food that Mother Nature is proud of. Browsing through my pantries, you will not find a lot of junk food at all. For example, you will not usually find the 3 Cs: chips, candies, and cookies.
|Schneiders Country Natural Meats & Lunch Mate Snacks Are Handy For School Lunches|
When I'm making the kids' lunches for school, I'm thinking about nutrition, I'm thinking about foods that they will eat, and also about what will fill them. My oldest son comes home hungry if I don't include a protein like chicken or turkey meat, and 3 snacks like an apple, banana and a small bag of carrot sticks. He does well when I pack a sandwich with Schneiders Country Naturals meats. If I add a slice or two of cheese to his sandwich with bean or alfalfa sprouts, it really wards off his appetite.
Schneiders Country Natural meats have no preservatives added, no artificial ingredients, colours or flavours, no additives, and no MSG or by-products. To me, this is a very decent choice when going the sandwich meat route.
On the days when my kids have a fuller schedule than usual, or have a lot of sports in their routine, I like to pack Schneiders Lunch Mate Stackers in their lunch bags. Inside the Lunch Mate box, there are crackers, cheese slices, meat slices and one miniature chocolate bar. My kids really enjoy receiving a Lunch Mate box when I give it, and I think it is a better choice than many alternatives I can think of.

1 handful Bean or Alfalfa Sprouts
1 teaspoon of Mustard
*I always offer at least one fruit and at least one vegetable to my kids when offering this sandwich.Schneiders on Facebook
