Delicious and Nutritious Combos for Kids

Every weekday morning there is a frenzy of activity in our home as we ready themselves and our sleepy little Pudding Pie for the day. Clothes have to be picked out and rejected several times over; teeth must be brushed; hair must be detangled and combed; breakfast must be made and then coaxed into a small but strong-willed little person, and the biggest task of the morning must also be tackled: preparing Pudding Pie's daily fare. Each weekday morning I make and pack a morning snack, a lunch, an afternoon snack and an early supper for
Pudding Pie. And each weekday morning I wrack my brain for new and fun ways to deliver Pudding Pie her daily servings of protein, carbs, calcium and everything else she needs to keep on growing at the fantastic rate that she is!

I cannot pretend that the weekday morning frenzy is my favorite time of day, but life has become much easier on these mornings and I have Oscar Mayer's new Lunchables Lunch Combinations to thank. The Lunchables Lunch Combinations are tasty and nutritious - just what I strive for each morning - and they require zero preparation! I can send Pudding Pie off with instant well-rounded meals and she loves them! Actually, she thinks her Lunchables packs are special treats and she happily devours them - I am delighted because I know she's getting what she needs, it's a win-win situation!

The new line of Oscar Mayer Lunchables Lunch Combinations includes spring water and other firsts for Oscar Meyer, including sub sandwiches and applesauce. The product line also offers the following enhancements: turkey made with 100% turkey breast, bread made with whole grain, Kraft 2% cheddar, and dessert like Chewy Chips Ahoy! Cookies and Mini Nilla Wafers.

The six new varieties include: Turkey + Cheddar Sub Sandwich, Ham + American Sub Sandwich, Turkey + Cheddar Cracker Combos, Ham +American Cracker Combos, Deep Dish Cheese Pizza and Deep Dish Pepperoni Pizza. Both the Turkey + Cheddar Sub Sandwich and Deep Dish Cheese Pizza meet the Kraft Foods Sensible Solution criteria for nutritional value.

Lunchables Lunch Combinations are available at all major grocery stores.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central on behalf of Oscar Mayer Lunchables and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
