One of the most popular questions I receive is "how do I pack hot foods for school lunches?"
We are fortunate that Little Miss has access to a microwave at lunch time, but some foods pack better in a Thermos instead of reheating that way. It's also not the case for all our readers, so even though I try to answer this question as it comes up... it's important to also take the time to share about it on blog.
One of her favorite hot lunch items that I pack for her macaroni & cheese. I'm thankful I can easily whip her up a box of Horizon Organic Gluten Free Cheesy Mac to satisfy her cravings.
It's that time of year again... back to school! Time to get those lunch boxes ready.
Since moving from Michigan to Arizona about a month ago, Little Miss started a new school that follows a "balanced calendar" - meaning, she is on an almost "all year school" calendar and school began back on July 18th. Crazy, but it's let her start developing friendships right away, which is great.
I'm always looking for simple lunchbox ideas and recipes that allow me to pack in protein and yummy allergy friendly ingredients she can enjoy at school. Just like these SunButter Spice Bars. They're gluten free and top 8 allergen free.
This post and giveaway is sponsored by Snyder's of Hanover. All opinions are my own.
For years, I have admittedly bypassed the Snyder's of Hanover Pretzels on the shelves. Even when they released their Gluten Free Pretzels (which are now certified GF), I knew looming on the backside was that warning... "Made in a facility that handles peanut butter."
While I appreciated their labeling, since it's not mandatory to label for cross-contamination, it was something my family could not eat.
WELL, THAT HAS CHANGED! Snyder's of Hanover production at its main pretzel bakery in Hanover, Pennsylvania is now dedicated Peanut Free.
To celebrate the change, we're giving away a #PretzelsBaby Prize Pack + a $25 Visa Gift Card to one lucky winner!
Erica and I managed to eat our way through the city and even attend an award show while there. We found tons of delicious gluten free & allergen friendly eateries aaaaand may have also found a karaoke sound booth. Maybe... we'll see if that video ever surfaces.
