Back to School season is upon us and we are gearing up with more delicious lunch box ideas your little ones with love! Last year’s post was such a hit, we decided to share a few more lunch combos for 2016. This time we are proud to partner with Pearls Olives for their #BetterWithPearls Mini Moments Back to School Program!
As a busy working mom, I love any opportunity to snag just five minutes back into my day to focus on the more important moments with my family. Pearls Olives To Go gives me those five minutes! The perfectly portioned grab-and-go containers are so easy to add to my boys’ lunches and they LOVE them! The peel-off lids are easy to open for little hands and there’s no messy liquid! Just toss a container into a lunch box and you are good to go!
Check out the yummy lunch ideas we put together below, and find out how you can enter to win the #BetterWithPearls Mini Moments Sweepstakes!
Lunch #1 features a healthy twist on a peanut butter sandwich. Take a whole wheat wrap, spread some peanut butter or almond butter, add banana slices and a drizzle of honey! Roll it up and slice into bite-sized pieces. We threw in some cheese cubes, fruit, and veggies, and finished it off with some yummy black olives in our trusty lunch box.
We filled this lunch box to the brim with chicken salad, crackers and cheese, avocado slices, hummus and cucumbers, pomegranate seeds, and a pack of kalamata olives. This lunch is full of protein and the olives give it a Mediterranean flair!
Breakfast for lunch, anyone? This delicious combination features a whole wheat bagel with cream cheese and jelly, plus some veggies and ranch, cheese cubes, orange slices, and kalamata olives.
Who needs grilled cheese and soup when you can have grilled cheese and olives? This salty combo is paired with some celery and cherry tomatoes, and some sweet peach slices. All packed into the best (and easiest) lunch boxes around.
We are thrilled to add Pearls Olives To Go to our lunchbox packing routine. They make my job a little easier and everyone’s day a little brighter.
You can find Pearls Olives at your local Target and Walmart and choose from a variety of types of olives!
We have an extra treat for you, dear readers! Head on over to Pearls Olives Facebook page and enter to win a weekly prize pack or the grand prize, a Mega Moment prize pack valued at $1,000! The sweepstakes will run until September 11, 2016. Good luck!
