Horizon Organic fuels kids’ lunch & snacking
5 lunch box packing tips
1. Keep it balanced
Make sure to add a fruit, vegetable, protein and carbohydrate so lunches are balanced.
2. Eyes eat first
Kids eat with their eyes so be sure to use bright color to excite their appetites.
3. Size is key
Try smaller, bite-sized pieces for easier eating and to create less overwhelming items like sushi.
4. Try these sandwiches
Make pancake sandwiches filled with nut butter, seed butter or cream cheese. Use cookie cutters to make shaped sandwiches or place a variety of foods on a stick to amp up the fun factor.
5. Keep lunch ideas fresh
Vary your lunches. Send a sandwich one day and Horizon Organic Mozzarella Cheese Sticks with crackers another day, followed by a hot lunch like rice & beans.
1. Organic contains none of these
Most people know that organic milk is made without using GMOs, growth hormones, antibiotics or toxic, persistent pesticides.
2. USDA Organic is rare
This high government standard of food production is only met by 6% of milk sold in the U.S.
3. Organic cows get fresh food
The USDA requires that cows eat a diet of organic grass, grains and feed. Cows also must have access to shade, exercise, fresh air and direct sunlight.
4. No pesticides to impact hungry humans
Organic farm standards prohibit pesticides that have been proven harmful to human health.
5. Organic is good for the environment
Organic practices are designed to conserve wildlife while maintaining or improving soil and water quality.
