SO, WHAT IS in Jack's Gluten-Free Backpack?

HIS LUNCH!

Check out some of our favorite products for packing lunches EVERYDAY.

1)  EasyLunchboxes

First things FIRST! We need to pack his lunch in something. And that something is EasyLunchboxes. 

We've teamed up with EasyLunchboxes to help make packing lunches EASY! With a roomy cooler bag, easy to open lunch containers and mini (leak proof) dippers, EasyLunchboxes provides everything you need to make sure your kiddo is lunch ready! With assorted colors for the cooler bags and containers, EasyLunchboxes has something for everyone.

This could all be YOURS!

NOW, let's chat about what goes INSIDE Jack's lunch...


2)  Enjoy Life Foods NEW mini Cookies

Enjoy Life Foods has introduced their next BIG thing - MINISFREE FROM THE TOP 8 ALLERGENS, these cookies are delicious and can be shared with EVERYONE! And when they say, "MINIS", they mean teeny tiny!  Just a size of quarter, these sweet little cookies make for a great treat in your child's lunch and/or after school snack.
MINIS, MINIS and more MINIS!!
The MINIS come in 6 Flavors - 3 soft baked and 3 crunchy flavors.
These will be available in stores this FALL!  I will keep you posted on dates! But you can order them from Enjoy Life Foods website.


3) Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips

Seriously, how can beans taste so good?! This is coming from someone who has NEVER liked beans! BUT, eating Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips, I can say, I LOVE BEANS!! These chips are SOOO FLAVORFUL and there are great benefits to eating them as well, like protein and fiber, just to name a couple. With 9 Flavors, Beanfields has a flavor for EVERYONE! They make smaller individual bags (1.5oz) that are perfect to put in your child's backpack or lunch!

Who would have thought? Let's make chips from Beans and Rice! Brilliant idea!!


4) Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix + Brownies 

So not necessarily in Jack's lunch, but before and after school, YES PLEASE! How about some delicious gluten-free pancakes in the morning? Or Banana Bread? Coffee Cake? I've made all of these using Pamela's Baking and Pancake Mix.

Oh Pamela, how I love thee...let me count the ways...
Then after school, a brownie treat that you can make in the microwave? Pamela's makes individual brownie packets! You can have a brownie in a cup in about a 1 minutes and 20 seconds! This is great to take to a friend's house for a sleepover or having on a Friday after school. Topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup - YUM!
Seriously, an INDIVIDUAL Brownie Packet...Genius
Then there's Pamela's Whenever Bars that you can have WHENEVER! With 6 Flavors, from Oat Chocolate Chip Coconut, Oat Blueberry Lemon to Oat Raisin Walnut Spice and Double Chocolate Peanut Butter - you can have these morning, noon and night. Perfect for your kiddo's snack at school. Or keep in his/her backpack for a "just in case" option.
