Horizon Organic is helping parents including myself, pack better lunch boxes this back to school season.486754_10151372485417493_232171102_a

In collaboration with Elizabeth Somer, a nationally-recognized dietician and author, Horizon Organic developed a “5 Lunch Needs and 50 Ways Ways to Please” resource to aid in back to school lunch box packing. The list outlines the five main food groups and 10 great-tasting choices within each group to make packing a nutritious lunch easy and enjoyable. Together, parents and children can mix-and-match items from each food group to create a balanced packed lunch. Parents can then use the resource with marked selections as a simple grocery shopping list.

One item included in Somer’s recommended list of lunch box foods is Horizon Organic Milk with 32 mg DHA Omega-3 Single Serve Milk Boxes. Introduced earlier this year in vanilla and chocolate flavors, Horizon Organic Milk with 32 mg DHA Omega-3 Single Serve Milk Boxes are an ideal option for families who want all of the nutritious benefits of milk, including 8g of protein, Vitamins A and D, and calcium, with the added benefit of DHA omega-3 to support healthy brain development. As the first shelf-stable milk box with 32 mg DHA omega-3, these new milk boxes are perfect for packed school lunches.

The complete “5 Lunch Needs and 50 Ways to Please Back to School Resource” is available on the Horizon Organic website at http://bit.ly/1cA9yd0.

    i put lots of veggies and fruits, with either a one treat or a chips, but most of it is protein or fruit or veggies.

  2. D SCHMIDT says

    I include a lot of fruits and vegetables and try to alternate so they do not get too bored with any items.

  3. Jess McCarthy says

    I keep a lot of their favorite fruits and veggies cut up, so we can quickly pack them up. I also try and introduce new ones often.

  4. Denise B. says

    I cook what I normally have cooked through the years. There’s always something in the house like fruits or vegetables that someone can grab to eat when they want. We focus more on being active and taking our vitamins.

  5. Cindy B says

    We send carrots with his lunch; not only do they provide healthy vitamins but help clean the teeth after eating other foods as well.

  6. Jessica Fortner says

    I always pack snacks that are both healthy and I know he will eat it such as grapes, carrot sticks or seaweed snacks.

  7. says

    We make our own lunchables – not bento though! lol Just some turkey pepperonis (he loves these), string cheese, crackers and then a yogurt and fruit.

  8. Kristen Coronado says

    By making the healthy foods look fun! It doesn’t matter what you pack if they don’t eat it. Desert is usually a fruit or piece of dark chocolate

  9. sarah cooper says

    fresh fruit everyday, he likes all types of fruit but shys away from veggies so sometimes i give him the fruit veggie organic fruit pouches too.

  10. says

    I always add a small portion of a fruit or a vegetable that she says she doesn’t like or hasn’t tried before. I ask her to try one bite, and then she can eat her mac & cheese or PBJ sandwich. You never know or learn to enjoy healthy foods without exposure!

  11. ellen c. says

    I stay away from the sticky, chewy snacks like fruit snacks and roll ups to keep their teeth healthier. Thanks!

  12. Jill Myrick says

    I add a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as whole grain to my children’s lunches.


  13. Kim J says

    School lunches taste awful and the kids go hungry. They are expensive too… I pack hot soup in a thermos. The soup is either canned or homemade from leftover dinners.

  14. Jennifer Reed says

    I like to include a dairy product like milk, cheese, or yogurt to add a healthy element to their lunches.

  15. Kris says

    We homeschool and my dd is getting old enough to make her food. But I try to keep on hand healthy things for her to make/cook. I make sure she gets a balanced meal too.

  16. Angela Ash says

    I make my child’s lunch healthier by packing tasty yet healthy foods. I won’t just pack veggies – I like to include a healthy dip or peanut butter to ensure they will get eaten. It works like a charm.

  17. Crystal says

    I like to take away soda and give more veggies. The less artificial sugar that is consumed the better. If they look for sugar I serve more fruit.
