HALF TIME Lunches to go with Applegate and #giveaway

Do your remember Lunchables?  Actually, I know they still exist and they are filled with the same garbage ingredients that they were when I was a child.  I remember always asking my mom to pack me Lunchables since I was envious of the kids around me who had them.

This year with Sara in kindergarten I am needing to pack lunches every day.  For the last few years we were so lucky that her preschool program provided breakfast and lunch from an organic and local food service.  I never worried about what she would be eating!  I’ve had to do lots of planning especially since there is NO NUT policy in her class.

Anyways, while it doesn’t take more then a few minutes to make her lunch I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes I am just to tired.  I remember when the year started I said I would get it done the night before but I am so stinking tired that I am always doing it in the morning!

Well, Applegate has a brand new product that makes packing lunch a simple and painless process and Sara was ALL over it!


Applegate has teamed up with their friends at Stonyfield and Annie’s to create the first pre-packed lunch kit with natural and organic ingredients. HALF TIME™ includes Applegate natural meats and cheeses (which have no artificial ingredients or preservatives, and are antibiotic- and hormone-free), Annie’s Homegrown crackers and snacks, and Stonyfield Organic YoKids Squeezers.


A recent survey found that 88% of parents thought pre-packed lunch kits were convenient, but 79% of those parents were concerned about the nitrates, preservatives and artificial ingredients in those kits. Now you don’t have to compromise between convenience and quality. Your kids get the “cool” appeal and you can lose the guilt. VgC4sSPRDiUgu-agoF8Yte2CA84Ym5Jr-AkApyROpuM

Applegate would love to send a HALF TIME™ kit to one lucky reader! The kit includes

–          All three varieties of HALF TIME: Turkey & Cheese, Ham & Cheese, and Bologna & Cheese

–          A draw-your-own lunch bag

–          A set of permanent markers

–          Coupons

–          Activity book

Sara was a huge fan of the turkey and cheese (her favorite) and I was huge fan of having some “days off” from packing lunches!  If it was up to me those horrible Lunchables would be banned!  I’m so excited about this new and very easy option!!!  YEAH!!

    I always try to pack lunch for myself and children. I try to make different lunches each day, like salads or sandwiches or wraps.

  3. I pack my own lunches but I’m always in a rush. I sure wish I had classes late in the morning so I could get up and cook everything, chill out until it’s time to go. Sounds like the life of a college kid!

    I definitely brown bag my packed lunch as it’s so much more convenient and healthier too!

  11. Would LOVE to try this. I pack my son’s lunch but every time we go to the grocery store, he sees the lunchables and BEGS for them. I tell him no, that they aren’t healthy and he asks why because all of his friends bring them. Still trying to figure out how to handle that gingerly!
