The one thing I am not looking forward to this Back To School season is making school lunches. I try to send my kids with healthy, fun lunches, but my kids have weird requests like sandwiches with only butter, leftovers from dinner the night before and of course, when they are given the task of creating their own lunch, it tends to be junk food more then anything! At the end of the day, majority of the lunch ends up coming home anyways. The problem is time! Why eat when you have 15 minutes of pure freedom to run and play with your friends. Sure an apple looked good home, but think of the time and effort it takes to eat it? When it comes down to nutrition and play, play always wins out.
This year, I have three school lunches to make and three times the challenge. Instead of stressing myself out, I’m arming myself with a healthy and quick snack that is sure to be a big lunch box success; GoGo squeeZ .
GoGo squeeZ is a 100% Fruit Squeezable applesauce for busy kids on the go. Contained in juice box sized pouches, they are the perfect solutions for eating applesauce on the go. In addition to the eight flavours available in Canada, they’ve just launched two new flavours: Apple Strawberry-Kiwi and Gimme 5 (blend of Apple, Mango, Strawberry, Peach and Banana, in one delicious pouch!).
GoGo squeeZ snacks are 100% pure fruit, so it tastes like you have bitten into a apple that was just picked off the tree. They are designed for mothers looking to prepare balanced and delicious snacks for their children. Because they contain no added sugar, no preservatives, no colouring or artificial flavours, this is a snack that I am proud to give my children on a daily basis!
My kids have always been huge fruit eaters. There is rarely a time that a bag of apples or grapes lasts more then two days in our fridge. Needless to say, I wasn’t sure how my kids would react to ‘applesauce’ in a pouch. Surprisingly, they loved it. The liked the unique packaging and ability to reseal it if an unexpected activity breaks out and I’m never afraid of wasted product or messy lunchboxes. They enjoyed trying out the different fruit combinations and agreed that they would make the perfect addition to their lunch box!
Once you find a product your child loves, you have to make sure that it is ‘school appropriate’ as well. In our school, we have a student who suffers from a severe nut allergy. This means that no nuts or nut related products are allowed on the premise. Suffering from a gluten allergy myself, I understand the importance of adhering to such a rule. Since GoGo Squeez are 100% they contain no nuts or gluten and are manufactured in a nut free facility!
GoGo Squeez is packaged in a safe polyethylene package (BPA or phthalates FREE!) with a resealable lid. Although it can’t be recycled in your blue box (YET!), it can be collect, recycled with TerraCycled and turned into a new and useful product rather than lying in your local landfill.
