I’m excited to be partnering with Produce For Kids again this year for their annual Power Your Lunchbox campaign. I’ve been working with Produce for Kids since 2011 and I love their mission to help and support families to eat well and of course, enjoy lots of tasty produce!
This year, back to school will look a little different for everyone. Whether your kids will be learning online or back in the school building, being prepared with a healthy lunch can help ease stress. Plus, no matter the location, building a healthy mind and body helps everyone be ready to learn! Even if your kids will be doing school virtually at home, having a routine with lunchtime and meal prep helps keep everyone on track to be ready should any changes come your way.
How Does Power Your Lunchbox Help?
In the Community
Produce for Kids and it’s Power Your Lunchbox produce partners have committed to donating $14,000 to the United Fresh Start Foundation. I am so excited to share with you about this great organization. They “work to create an environment in which kids have easy access to high-quality, great-tasting and affordable fresh fruits and vegetables, whenever and wherever they are choosing snacks or a meal, ensuring kids everywhere are Growing Up Fresh.” They partner with local organizations to accomplish those goals.

Prep Ahead for Lunchtime Success – Recipe Ideas
One way I like to plan lunches for the week is to prep ingredients ahead of time so that they can be used in lunches throughout the week. We really like meals with chicken as it’s economical and so easy to include in a variety of meals.
Plus, it’s a versatile ingredient that pairs well with so many different kinds of fruits and vegetables! That makes it as perfect partner for Produce For Kids!
