I was the mom that let her children buy lunch at school every day because I didn’t think I had time to prepare them a lunch. They didn’t mind. In fact, they loved it.
At the beginning of this school year, I decided to make a change. I wanted to be the mom that made her children lunch every day. Not because I had to, but because I wanted to.
And what happened after that was eye-opening and brought excitement to this little heart of mine.
You see, my two older children have always been a little chunky. As babies, everyone thought it was so cute to see all their rolls. Of course, as a mom, I worried about them, but I was told they would grow out of it. For the most part, they did. But not entirely.
After a couple months of them taking their lunch every day, I noticed that my sons jeans were way too big on him. It got to the point where he could put them on and take them off without even undoing the button and zipper. I guess because I see him every day, I wasn’t noticing that he was slimming up.
What really got me excited was when other people starting noticing as well. My decision to make my children lunch every day, was the best decision I could have made for their health. I’m not sure what is in those school lunches, but I do know what goes into their lunchbox and apparently it’s better than any school lunch.
With basketball, piano, church, and the list goes on and on, sometimes, I have to grab easy-to-make options for their lunch. When that happens, I usually grab for the Uncrustables in the freezer. I’m so happy to hear about the new reduced sugar options available now. You can now get the Peanut Butter & Grape Jelly Uncrustables as well as the Peanut Butter & Strawberry Jelly Uncrustables with 1/3 less sugar! The sugar has been reduced to 6 grams from 9 grams!
Uncrustables make those busy, non-stop days just a tad bit easier on this busy mommy. And lets not forget picnics at the park, an easy on-the-go snack and most recently for us, a field trip lunch.
One (1) winner will receive an Uncrustables Gift Pack that includes Uncrustables Reduced Sugar product coupons, $100 gas card, Uncrustables Sandwich Keeper and a Cooler Tote Bag. This prize pack is valued at $150!
