Back to School Lunchbox & Snacks

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Del Monte, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DelMonteBTS

back to school lunch ideas

Summer is almost over, but another school year has started in our home. The girls are ecstatic to go to 3rd grade and 2nd grade. Time sure flies! It is bittersweet for me to see them go and become a little more independent each year that goes by!

This is how my sweet Ashely feels about starting 3rd grade…… ashley 3rd grade

And here’s my little Hannah who is going to 2nd grade…….

hannahI remember when I was their age I was super excited to start school, wear new clothes, bring a cute lunch box and of course eat some yummy snacks!  Del Monte fruit cups, snacks and even canned veggies have always been a favorite in our home.

I’m very cautious about the girls’ lunches because they are so energetic. I like to keep it balanced, but every once in a while we let loose.  I avoid sugary snacks, candy, juice and baked goods if possible.  Del Monte has no sugar added fruit cups.  The mandarin oranges are my girls’ favorite!  Did you know these are also yummy frozen?  Try them….your kids will love it!

Have you seen these new Fruit Burst Squeezers? They are 1 1/2 fruit and veggie servings per pouch.  No high-fructose corn syrup and no artificial flavors.  Good source of vitamins A & C.  The girls devour these like candy!


Walmart and Del Monte have a free back to school photo print offer to help save a little extra money while packing a healthy lunch for your kids.  All you need to do is bring in a photo of your kid(s) or you can upload and use one from your phone while in the store. (no copyrighted photos)

The Walmart print shop will then make your picture into a 5”x7” print with a “Back to School” border (your actual picture will be 4”x6”).  You will receive a coupon for $1 off 2 Del Monte products in the envelope when you pick up your printed picture.  This promotion runs August 1 – September 13 at SELECT Walmart Super Stores, while supplies last.
