Jillian enjoys a bed time snack: Schneider's Lunch Mate + fruit {#giveaway}


A stroll down the meat aisle at our grocery store with my children will often result in them asking for Lunch Mates.  In the past, I've purchased them for special occasion days, such as field trips or track and field days.  The kids love them, and they are a special lunch time treat.

Now -  Schneider's Lunch Mate is new and improved

Lunch Mate is available in chicken, ham, turkey and pizza, with natural ingredients and no preservatives added.    There are real cheese cubes, whole wheat crackers and a fruit cup for dessert.   I can feel good about giving Lunch Mate + Fruit to my children.

I am not a super-mom, I am an ordinary-sometimes-tired-and-lacking-inspiration-mom.  Lunch Mate is the perfect solution to those types of days, and any other day in between.

My kids were so excited to give new Lunch Mate a try!




Neatly compartmentalized, which I've come to know is a must have for my children (food must not touch each other), and enough to satisfy little appetites, is what we found when we peeled the lid off.  We noted that the lid was easily peeled back and wouldn't cause an issue when sent to school.

Miss Jillian loved the little cubes of cheese, which are perfect for nibbling.  She also put together turkey and crackers and munched away.


Yet, it was the fruit cup which was most exciting to her.  I love that Lunch Mate + Fruit comes with a fruit cup and a spoon.  I can not begin to tell you the number of times I've sent fruit cups without a spoon, which results in them slurping their fruit cups. 


 Yes, this is the perfect bed time snack!

As you may of guessed from my photos, Jillian was enjoying her Lunch Mate as a special evening snack, before bed.   It is pretty substantial for a bedtime snack, and she wasn't able to finish it all - that's okay, we just put the left overs in a resealable container for tomorrow night.

I think Lunch Mate + fruit is not only for snacks, and school lunches, but also for evenings on the run.  With it being a source of vitamins A and C, this is a fantastic alternative to going through a drive thru.  Kids love Lunch Mate, and so does mom.  I've been known to put together a cracker and meat and enjoy as well.


Besides being fun and tasty...

Moms and Dads, we can feel good about giving our children the occasional Lunch Mate, beside from being tasty and fun.  Why?  Two reasons really.
  • TerraCycle - which means recycling the lunch kit container for not only re-purposing, but also for profit to a non-profit organization
  • Lunch Mate Club - look for PINs in each Lunch Mate which can be collected and redeemed for special gifts from Hasbro, Crayola and more
Now, that's being smart!

 Look for  new Lunch Mate + fruit in your grocer's meat section and enjoy!
