PlanetBox Contest for Better Lunches!

school boyFor a parent, nothing is more important than their children.  We love, nurture, and nourish them.  Today we want to take a look at the nourishing part!  We hear all the food buzz words like "real food" and "traditional".  But what does that mean for our kiddos when we send them to school to eat lunch?  Unfortunately, not many schools are willing and/or able to provide quality meals.  So now, more than ever, we need to take control of what our kids eat.  Healthy eating habits can be molded at a young age, so offering them healthy treats now can be beneficial later.  We suggest some of our tasty, healthy, and nourishing treats, of course, such as: beef snack sticks, beef jerky, salami, summer sausage, cheese, nuts and berries, trail mixes, hot dogs, and GoodOnYa Bars, among others!

Since it can be hard at times to get kids to eat what they should and bypass the rest, we're asking for your input!  How do you get kids to pick the good stuff?  What do you fix for your kids' lunches?  What are your best tips and tricks about kids and eating right?

Leave us a comment with your tips and you could be rewarded!  First place for the best/most creative tip will receive a $50 US Wellness Meats gift certificate AND a PlanetBox Complete ($109.95 total value), second and third place will be chosen randomly and will each receive a $25 US Wellness Meats gift certificate AND a PlanetBox Complete ($84.95 value each).
