I am one of "those moms" who actually likes to pack a lunchbox. I know. Crazy, right? Over the years, I've come to realize that parents like me are a bit of a rare breed. Sure, I've come across a few other lunchbox enthusiasts in my time, but all in all, most parents I talk to are not particularly fond of packing lunch, especially after the back to school excitement is gone and the school-day routine is starting to feel monotonous.

My kids are creatures of habit, but they get bored of peanut butter and jelly all too quickly. When the lunchbox starts coming home day after day with nothing but a mere nibble taken out of it, I know it's time to spice things up and teach them that variety is fun when it comes to their lunch break!

You can include all kinds of creative goodies in your children's lunchbox. We usually have several key staples in the fridge (like yogurt, fruit, veggies, and sometimes leftovers) that make packing a no-sandwich lunchbox a breeze. Stonyfield® Organic Kids® products are my go-to easy and healthy way to add variety to any of my no-sandwich lunchboxes!

If you haven't tried the goodies from Stonyfield® Organic Kids® yet, you should totally pick some up next time you are at the store!  The kids love, love, love the taste and I love that it has 25% to 40% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt.

Not to mention that fact that Stonyfield® Organic Kids® yogurt contains no toxic persistent pesticides, no artificial growth hormones, no antibiotics, and no artificial flavors or colors.  That a long list of pluses that make this momma happy!

Leftovers are one of one of my favorite no-sandwich lunchbox staples.  More often than not, when we pick up fried chicken for dinner on a busy school night, there's usually a piece or two left over the next day.  Cold fried chicken is a kid favorite around here!
