I was at my favorite Whole Foods Market at the District a few weeks ago and ran into a colorful little display of Revolution Food products. I was quickly drawn to them because I’m always looking for something healthy to add to my boys lunch boxes. The more I read about the products the more I LOVED! So, I picked up the Squeezable Fruit Mashups which is a brilliant idea of pureed fruit the kids can squeeze right out of the little package. My boys absolutely loved these. They call them their fruit smoothies. You can also freeze them for a fun treat and it even keeps the lunch box cold.
Here are more of their great products, I am so excited to try them all. Here’s what they have to say about their products:
“Our organic lunchbox snacks and sandwich builders make it easy to nourish your kids with yummy balanced nutrition. We like to think of it as Lunchbox Simplicity. Simple for parents to pack, simple for kids to eat and a simple way to maintain a healthy diet at school or at home.”

Wow! This can be one particular of the most helpful blogs We’ve ever arrive across on this subject. Actually Excellent. I’m also a specialist in this topic so I can understand your hard work.
She made a bunch of stuff… Least favorites had to be meat sandwiches (especially turkey) with cheese and mayo, it gets stuck to the roof of your mouth… ew. Favorite? Hmmm… Hard to decide. I loved it when I got gazpacho in a thermos, and I also loved leftover enchiladas. In lower grade school, my mom would pack me a little note on a napkin, something just for me, never to be shared with friends or classmates. I always loved that little note.
I love loved lOvEd when my cute mom would pack a cup of milk with ice in it. It did my body good 😉
I remember getting fresh cheese curds in my lunch, yum! Also, she’d write me little notes.:)
My brother and sisters ate in the cafeteria. But if we wanted to bring our own lunch for the next day we would have to pack it ourselces. More or less we would forget it in the fridge. But I do remember going with mom to the store and getting things for my lunch box that I would pack. There is plenty of items that are just for the lunch box. We loved those!!
My mom would make the sandwich and then I was on my own to pack the rest. I always ran late so it was an automatic bag of chips and juice box in addition to the mom-made peanut butter and jelly. It sounds boring but it was definitely better than the cafeteria options!
Mom used to write mushy love notes on my napkins in my school lunches…i hope i win!
My very favorite thing was always fluffer-nutters. Most of the people I know didn’t even know what they were but to bite into fresh white bread with peanut butter and marshmallow cream in the middle of a tough school day – nothing was better than that.
Strawberry cream cheese sandwiches, Bugles (which I got into trouble for putting them onto my fingertips like witch fingernails :), Giggles cookies, Deviled Ham, Spaghettio’s and ravioli in a thermos, Mom’s vegetable soup in the thermos, and strawberries with a tiny bag of sugar for dipping. 🙂
Thanks for the chance to win!
It’s been a while but I was going to get a quick dinner recipe from you tonight and I saw this GREAT drawing! I DO remember my mom packing my lunch and I have to admit I got pretty sick of the same old pb & j.. I am now a mom that has 2 of my 4 kids in school. I am always trying to think of a good healthy, fun lunch for my kids. I honestly loose sleep over “what to make for lunch” since my kids go to a charter school I don’t ever have the lazy option to let them “buy” lunch. but I love making my kids lunch. I would love to try these products, hopefully my kids would love them as much as you do. what an awesome healthy alternative! We miss you here in AZ!!!
I don’t remember any particular lunch but I do remember the metal lunchbox that started the school all clean and shiny and by Christmas is was getting pretty nasty. Sure glad when we started using brown paper bags.
Peanut butter and jelly of course 🙂 Unfortunately, I always hated it when my mom tried to sneak in something healthy. Now we can “sneak” healthy things into our kids lunches and they don’t even know it!
My mother raised me on “nutter butter” sandwiches…Two slices of bread, spread with peanut butter and marshmallow cream….EEWWWW….but I loved them, then. Not so much now.
My lunches were always very healthy. I was always jealous of my friends who got twinkies or ding dongs in their lunches.
