Up&Up is a Target brand that offers a fun toddler snack of applesauce that I like to call “on the go snack”,why? Well because I have no problems with having my kids eat this in my car! No mess and good for the kids snack.
There are multiple options of the up&up brand food pouches, but today I am talking about the applesauce in particular. The flavors come from Applesauce Cinnamon to Plum Banana and everything in between. The pouches come in stages from 1-4 and are a great snack for on the go sports nights or an addition to the kiddos cold lunch at school.
My six year old and ten year old have been bringing these up&up applesauce pouches to school in their cold lunch with a turkey & cheese sandwich, drink and crackers. They are so happy that Target sent these to us because apparently the applesauce cups I sent before were a “pain to open and eat at school”.
Target has allowed me to share their coupons with you all where you can save various amounts on the up&up brand selections of snacks for your little ones. I certainly will be taking advantage of these coupons because the kids are extremely happy with this up&up brand applesauce. My six year old loves all of the flavors and my ten year old daughter’s favorite is the cinnamon applesauce. The four year old refuses to eat these, so I can not tell you what his favorite option is. The kid is going through this stage that he refuses to try any new foods, even with a cool twist off top the older kids and I just couldn’t talk him into it.
These have been a hit with the older two kids and I will certainly continue to purchase them using the up&up Target Coupons.
This post is sponsored, however, all opinions are my own.
The debate, or rather she hoped it was a debate, started when I told my daughter she would be having cold lunches this year with the option of hot lunch from the school only once per week. There was no real debate because even though the kids know how to vote, the rule is I am boss and while I take in their opinions, I do have the final ruling or decision to make.
I recently tested out Dole Real Fruit Bites and they were so delicious and nutritious, which means the kids will surely have some of those during school snack and lunch time this year! The reason for my love of Dole Real Fruit Bites is that they combine my favorites together fruit, yogurt and whole grain oats for a real tasty treat! With most packs being 90 calories, they are not only delicious but nutritious!
A recent study showed that 73% of parents (Wakefield Research for Dole Real Fruit Bites) snack on their kids snacks, why? Because it’s quick and easy. Think about soccer nights? I Know those are the nights I would be more likely to grab a bite of my kids treats without a second thought because they are crazy busy evenings!
Here are some lunch packing ideas for your cold lunch kids that are quick, easy and nutritious -
Add instant rice to leftover chicken or transform leftover steak into a hearty chili
Cut sandwiches into different shapes with cookie cutters, or write a note on a napkin
Dole Real Fruit Bites are made from real dried fruit, coated with yogurt and sprinkled with toasted whole grain oats – Kids won’t be trading this snack
Think outside the thermos, and try freezing a yogurt cup or a juice box
Grab snacks for your desk drawer or purse so you can have a quick bite
What are some ways you make cold lunches and snacks easier but healthy for your kids?
