My daughter has to bring a snack and drink for lunch every day…non refrigerated. The snack part has been not so easy to figure out since she can’t bring anything with nuts in it but the drink part was easy.
For whatever reason my kids still like milk. Well, I do to if it is raw but we blow through our raw milk supplies too fast. I won’t touch conventional milk but my kids like it so I still buy some, organic of course. My daughter has been taking single serving Horizon milk boxes to school for a couple days and boy are they handy. They come in regular, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry and are a big hit with the kiddos. They don’t require refrigeration so they are easy to bring just about anywhere. My daughter has taken one every day this week, carried in her recycled PET lunch bag form Reusablebags.
The kids like the taste and I love that they are organic. I do not however, like the waste created by the boxes so much. After these run out we will likely just stick with water or fresh juice inside her Klean Kanteen. But these would be nice to have on hand for those times we haven’t planned things out that well. Hey it happens. These are much better than the conventional milk kids get in the school cafeteria. The same delicious milk but no artificial growth hormones and no pesticides.
You can find the Horizon milk boxes at Whole Foods and online of course.
