Packing the “Perfect Lunch?” At Least I Can Count On Stonyfield

A six-year-old and a two-year-old. Two separate schools and two packed lunches every day. And, despite all efforts, the pickiest eaters in the world.

It seems like I can never get them to sit down for a proper breakfast or dinner. Threats, rewards, hiding vegetables in cake, cutting potatoes into letters and arranging fruit into smiley faces – I have tried it all. But for whatever reason, the one thing they (and almost every other kid I know) can agree on is yogurt. Thankfully there is Stonyfield stocking us with every variety of organic yogurt under the sun.

Smoothies, squeezies, frozen, or old-fashioned, with every kind of topping and texture. This is the easiest way to create variety for children who even fail to accept new foods when I give them blindfolded taste tests. So when those lunchboxes come home empty, I just have to hope the teachers aren’t letting them cheat!

One of our newest discoveries is freezing Stonyfield Squeezers, creating healthy ice pop snacks perfect for summer days. Something about squeezing just enthralls children (p.s. remember these things? Ew!I even loathed them as a child!)

New varieties from Stonyfield include the indulgent Petite Creme and Oh My Yog! as well as Greek, Squeeze Pouches, Chia Blends, and YoKids Cups. Warning: you might want to keep the Oh My Yog! all to yourself. Especially the pear one.

Disclosure: This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. Regardless, my opinions are honest. See my full disclosure here.
