Healthy Lunchbox Alternatives

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
According to the CDC, childhood obesity has more than doubled in the past 30 years! As we encourage children to find a balance between healthy eating and physical activity, offer your kids some of these products as delicious alternatives to everyday snacks and lunchbox go-tos!
You might think that drinks labeled "fruit juice" are a great option for your child but the truth is, some boxed juices can have upwards of 15 grams of sugar per serving, almost the same amount as a can of soda! Instead, try a 100% natural, low sugar option like Coco Joy Kids. The new, naturally fruit-flavored pure coconut water for kids contains no added sugar or preservatives and is only 30 calories.
Studies show that people who eat whole grains regularly have a lower risk of obesity, so sneak in those added benefits through a delicious snack like Lance Whole Grain Cracker Sandwiches. Available in 3 great varieties including Cheddar Cheese, Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Peanut Butter, Lance Whole Grains contain no trans fat, and offer a whopping 11 grams of whole grain per serving!
Instead of fueling your child with sugary, high-calorie sodas, offer them a Sparkling ICE! The naturally flavored slightly sparkling water is zero calories, gluten-free, sugar-free and contains fruit juice, vitamins and healthy antioxidants.
If your child has a sweet tooth but you're weary of giving them a bag full of high-sugar, artificially flavored gummy snacks, go for Welch's Fruit Snacks! The convenient 80-calorie pouches of Welch's Fruit Snacks provides 100% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C and are gluten-free, preservative free and even come in a reduced sugar variety.
These delicious snacks and drinks are a great way to provide your child with healthy lunchbox alternatives and snacks. Grown-ups will love them too! The new PB&J Snacks from Welch's are my current obsession...mmmm.
