Spice up School Lunches
Gear up for the school year with these lunch ideas. From uncrustables to simple snack pairing, we’re sure there will be something your kids will enjoy.
Sometimes finding something that all the kids like can be an extreme challenge, almost as challenging as putting the meals together for them.
But, you can’t go wrong with our selection of Smuckers Uncrustables!
The best part about these Uncrustables is they’re all packaged up and ready for a quick grab and go. Making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich has never been easier!
Quick Tip for Cool Lunches
Aside from our Gossner Milk selection being shelf stable, another amazing thing about it is that you can freeze it too! Pop these cartons into the freezer the night before and pack them with your kiddo’s lunch the following day. Not only will it help keep your kid’s lunch cool but the milk will be defrosted by lunch time! Make sure they shake it well before opening though!
OR another alternative is to take a clean wet sponge, freeze overnight and include it with lunches as a DIY Icepack!
