PS. for those of you that are Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free, have a Peanut allergy or are doing the Paleo no peanut thang KIND does make snacks that you can enjoy! Above are just a sampling of snack bars you might be able to enjoy, hooray! They do have quite a few bars that are peanut-free and made with pecans cashews, almonds, and pistachios although please beware that the packaging states that it was processed in a facility using peanuts.
We love this granola! And guess what? It makes a great item to pack along in a school lunch!
I know some of you had concerns with the last meals I showed (click here to see them!) regarding the yogurt and messiness that might ensue in your kids’ lunchbox. If you don’t have a separator in your bento box or the lid is not tight fitting you could place your yogurt, hummus, , salsa, ranch dressing, etc in these little plastic cups with lids (I bought mine at Target). The bonus of using them is that if the food is really smelly after hours of sitting out (I’m talking to you ranch dressing) your child could just toss it so you aren’t having to gag while hand washing it to re-use for another meal.
Voila! Mess-free yogurt! Just mix in your granola for a crunchy and sweet meal idea!
The lower layer contains slices of fresh strawberries and bananas with a few bento picks for eating them…bonus: you can also dip these babies in the yogurt!
