I tend to dread packing school lunches.  It is such a chore, and finding products that are easy to use can be a hassle.  I am a label reader, and Santa Cruz Organics makes it easy to shop.  Their products are all natural and organic, and the kids love them!

One of our go-to lunches is peanut butter & jelly.  Santa Cruz offers both peanut butter and fruit spread that is organic and natural.  No worries about things like food dyes or preservatives.  There are so many possibilities with these two, whether you use them together on bread or separately.  I like to put fruit spread in plain yogurt with chia seeds – yum!

Did you know you can freeze PB&J?!

  • Make a big batch of PB&J sandwiches with Santa Cruz Organic Peanut Butters and Fruit Spreads ahead of time and freeze individually. Just take one out of the freezer each morning and pack – by lunch time it will be thawed and ready to go.

My daughter and came up with a great after-school snack.  The kids are used to coming home and eating an apple almost every day after school, and my daughter also likes peanut butter on crackers.  Put the two together, and we have an amazing snack!

Start by mincing up apples..

Minced apples

Get some Santa Cruz Organic Peanut Butter on a cracker, and sprinkle the apple on top.  This snack is so good, we can’t get enough of it!

And if you are looking for some ready-to-go ideas, Santa Cruz Organics has plenty of those.

Try individually packaged Santa Cruz Organic Cinnamon Apple Fruit Sauces and Squeezable Pouches for yummy fall flavor with no added sugar. As an added bonus, each 4-ounce sauce cup provides 100% recommended daily intake of Vitamin C.

We always keep pouches in the car for those times that I need an emergency snack for the kids.  And the applesauce cups are a regular staple for our school snacks and lunches, because I can keep a huge stash on hand and have them ready to pack!
