Wet Ones and Goldfish Crackers for School Lunches

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Wet Ones® + Pepperidge Farm® . The opinions and text are all mine.

I pack Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish Crackers in my son’s lunch box every single day and he never seems to tire of it. I’m not sure if he eats it for snack or for lunch, but it’s always gone when I clean out his lunch box at night, and usually his lunch box is a mess with crumbs and liquids co-mingling into a sticky goo.

I usually pack a paper towel to line his lunch box and a paper towel wrapped around his utensils but now I am thinking I should include Wet Ones® Singles to help him clean his hands of his sticky mess. My son likes to eat with his hands, and I’m not sure if he washes his hands before snack or lunch at school.

There’s another issue with lunch for my son. Because he gets just 30 minutes for lunch and lunch recess, he races to eat as fast as possible to maximize his outdoor time. Food that is easy and quick to eat is a must, or it does not get consumed.

I finally figured out some healthy options that my son likes. If I deviate from this list, the food just comes back untouched and my son will have a melt down at the school pickup from being hungry (but not realizing it). He needs a substantial amount of food to stay fueled up.

– Quesadilla. I make it in the morning and wrap it in aluminum foil to keep it hot.

– Grilled Cheese. If I run out of flour tortillas, this is my other go to option.

– Mac and Cheese. I pack this once or twice a month.

– Turkey rollups and cheese. I just use turkey lunch meat and cheese.

– Cucumbers. My son loves cucumbers and I alternate between sliced cucumbers or apples. While he eats a wider variety of fruits and vegetables at home, he really doesn’t seem to at lunch.

– Berries. My son loves all berries but especially raspberries. Raspberries don’t pack very well though, so I stick with strawberries. Blueberries seem to fiddly to eat at school.

– Rice Crackers. My son doesn’t feel self-conscious to eat snacks that are different from the other kids which is nice.

– Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish Crackers in snack size packs. He eats this every day and never tires of it.

There are also a few dinners that I make extra of to pack for lunch:

– Spaghetti and Meatballs

– Chicken Parmesan

– Chicken Cutlet

– Teriyaki Salmon and Rice

– Teriyaki Chicken and Rice

– Steak and Rice

How about you? What are some easy lunch and snack ideas that you are using for packing school lunches? thanks for sharing!
