When school season starts back up, things get a little crazy. Between shuttling everyone to school, extra-curricular activities, and to hang out with friends, homemade meals are hard to pull off for a parent. Luckily, with these snacks and meal kits, you can make sure your family is eating healthy, hearty foods that will keep them satisfied, energized, and focused.
1.Olli Salumeria Snack Packs
Olli Salumeria snack packs are healthy, high-protein snack option for kids. They're resealable and easily portable, which makes them perfect as a quick snack in the car on the way to practice or even a simple pre-prepared lunch. The best part is that these ingredients aren't as highly processed as Lunchables, for example. If you haven't taken a look at the nutrition label, you may be surprised that there are as many as 17g of sugar lurking in Lunchables. SUGAR! Olli, on the other hand, has none. And we can all agree that limiting added sugars in our diets is better for our health!
