Make Lunch Time... FUN TIME!

Will your kids be packing and bringing a lunch this school year?  As I mentioned in a previous post about healthy snack options to pack for your kids' lunches, many parents are opting to send their kids to school with a packed lunch to save money on expensive school lunches when you have multiple kids, as well as know what your kids are eating.  I remember when I was young and was sent to school with lunch money, on days I didn't like what was being served, I used my lunch money to buy cookies or chips from the vending machine, along with sugary drinks.  Not really a healthy, balanced meal...and, not food that gave me energy to make it through the rest of the school day.  Some of my friends who have kids in public school have found the same thing happening with their kids. If they didn't like what was being served, they would eat unhealthy snacks from the vending machines, or just grab a soda and pocket the rest of the money.  Then, when they got home, they raided the fridge as they were hungry.  To help prevent this, and make sure kids are making healthy lunch choices, packing a lunch with them may be the best bet for parents.

Even though my girls are homeschooled, many of their classes occur during lunch time, or we are traveling at lunch to a class.  So, either I have to pack a lunch for the girls to enjoy with their friends at a class, or they are eating in the car en route to class.  We have been homeschooling for five years now, so we have learned it is better to pack a lunch than eat out when we find ourselves needing to eat lunch (or even dinner) on the road.  And, when you pack a lunch, you need a good lunch bag or tote to store your kid's food in, that will keep it cold and organized.  

Each year, in addition to buying a new backpack, my girls also choose a new lunch tote.  This year they didn't have to walk up and down the aisles at the store looking for a lunch tote as they were sent oh so cute and huggable Lunch Pet to help me review, and they absolutely love them!  They can't wait for school to start so that they can help me pack their lunch, and then show off their new Lunch Pets to their friends and teachers.

If you stay up late watching television, you may have seen the Lunch Pets infomercial on television.  I have seen the following video a few times on television, and it prompted me to visit the Lunch Pets website to learn more.  

But, before I could place an order for Lunch Pets lunch boxes for my girls, I was asked to review and offer a giveaway on my blog, so I jumped at the opportunity.  Recently, I was sent the HungryPup and SnackyCat Lunch Pets for my girls to check out.  

We decided to keep the cute HungryPup, and will be giving away the adorable SnackyCat, so be sure to read on to learn how you can enter for a chance to win this fun new Lunch Pets for your child.

As you can see in the photo below, my oldest daughter, who is a huge dog lover, really LOVES her HungryPup Lunch Pets tote. 

She has never seen a cuter lunch tote, as says she loves how it comes with a snap together handle to hold in hand or secure to her scooter handle bar, and the addition of the name tag holder will keep her Lunch Pets from being taken from another child who may show up with the same cute Lunch Pets Tote.

Don't worry, I bought another SnackyCat for my youngest daughter, as she wanted her own Lunch Pets to tote around and carry her lunch in style to classes.  :-)
