This is what my son's lunch would look like each day if I'd let him pack it himself. A sandwich, fruit and fruit snacks, lol. So when this Welch's Fruit Snacks lunchbox came to our door, I had to laugh. This is definitely right up his alley, and the fruit snacks made him more than happy too.
In his classroom this year, he is allowed to bring a mid-day snack, so I let him take a fresh piece of fruit for lunch, and the fruit snacks for classroom munching. They're perfect for school because they're quiet to eat and not at all messy. My son is lucky, he gets his choice of pretty much anything he'd like to have in his lunchbox, as long as it's not junk. Not everyone, I know, is so lucky...
For children, good nutrition is important for establishing a good foundation for a child's future physical and mental health, academic achievement and economic productivity. But according to the USDA, 15.3 million children in the U.S. live in households where they don't have consistent access to the nutritious food they need for a healthy life. As a result of hunger and food insecurity, many children are left to deal with a poorer quality of life.
In an effort to combat child hunger and provide families with nutritious meals, Welch's® Fruit Snacks has partnered with Feeding America® to provide 1 million meals to those in need. From now until October, every box of Welch's® Fruit Snacks purchased can help fight child hunger. Welch's® Fruit Snacks is calling on consumers across the country to help fill the lunchboxes. When consumers buy Welch's® Fruit Snacks and submit a proof of purchase, Welch's® Fruit Snacks will donate an additional $1.00 (11 meals) to Feeding America® with the goal of reaching 1.6 million meals donated!
