Applegate HALF TIME™ kits
If your kids are anything like mine, which they may not be, they are obsessed with everything they can’t have. This includes Lunchables!
My child: “But mom, everyone at school has Lunchables. They’re healthy I promise.”
Me: “There’s nothing healthy about meat and cheese with that kind of shelf life, and nachos also do not qualify as lunch, so don’t ask!”
(Keep in mind they also are using the tiny candy, if there is one included, as the reason to purchase.)
To be honest, Lunchables in our house are about as taboo as asking us to buy Ramen noodles. They’re full of additives and have no nutritional value. If we ever do eat either, it certainly isn’t intended to replace any meal.
So when Stonyfield Yogurt partnered with Applegate and Annie’s Homegrown to present us an opportunity to try the Applegate HALF TIME kits I was all about it! Finally, a “lunchable” my kids can be proud to take to school and one I can send with them knowing they’ll actually eat it and not just grab the candy and toss the rest.
Don’t let the box fool you! Even though these appear large, they took up no more space in the lunchboxes as usual. Just stick it in with a reusable ice pack and the drink of your choice and voila!-instant wholesome lunch goodness that your kids can show off to their friends!
Applegate’s HALF TIME kits come in three varieties
- Bologna and Cheese
- Ham and Cheese
- Turkey and Cheese
Each comes with Applegate natural and preservative-free cheese and meat, crackers, a snack from Annie’s and a Stonyfield Yokids Squeeze.
What does Applegate have to say about their HALF TIME kits?
“We believe kid food should be great food: highest quality, totally natural, and decidedly delicious. HALF TIME™ to the rescue. Finally feel good about sending off your kid with an all-bases-covered lunch without antibiotics, preservatives, or artificial ingredients. Applegate Natural Meats, classic Applegate Cheese, Annie’s Crackers, Annie’s Organic Snacks™ and Stonyfield® YoKids® Squeezers® Organic Lowfat Yogurt make a wholesome lunch or snack. Dig in.”
As a Stonyfield Yo-getter, my family was sent one of each style, a reusable lunch bag with markers for decorating, reusable napkin/hankerchief/bandana/tablecloth-my kids went a little crazy with it as you can see, a coupon and coloring book!
