Last week the kids were busy with baseball and softball camp and this gave us a great opportunity to start putting our AquaBall Pledge commitment to the test and make better back to school lunch choices. During the school year, my plan is to take them grocery shopping so they can choose what they want in their school lunches, and have them pack them daily. Practice makes perfect – well better, right?
I took the kids to our local Ralphs to grab a few lunch items and to redeem our AquaBall coupons we received from the AquaBall Pledge package. I have had several people ask where they can find AquaBall drinks – their retailers are available here: AquaBall Retailers.
Now, let’s be honest – I let my kiddos loose in our supermarket and they went for their favorites – chips, cookies, candy and more! Seriously, it was frustrating!!!! I had to constantly remind them – is that really a better choice? Do you really need all that sugar? Are candy items really allowed at your school in lunches? Honestly, I was done and headed out. Looks like I need to guide them a little more…
So, at home, I already had a few healthy items on hand since this has to be a lifestyle choice for all of us. I brought the kids into the kitchen and opened their lunch boxes and began packing.
If you know my kids – you already know they don’t eat much. This would be a HUGE lunch for them that they probably wouldn’t even finish. However, this was a good example for them of the items we should be selecting for our lunches.
I need your help! Please share some of your “go to” healthy choices! My finicky eaters need some new ideas and alternatives to their regular selections.
One thing for sure – AquaBall has become a favorite in our household. Don’t tell the kids, but my husband and I have grabbed a couple of their bottles when we were thirsty. Join us in pledging to make better choices for your family. We would be the first to say convenience foods make things so much easier – but does it? My kids LOVE fast food and request it all the time – it’s our responsibility to make heathier options more available now.
AND, get a little more knowledge! Join AquaBall in #FactFriday on Facebook. There will be fun giveaways and nutritional tidbits.
