As a mom of three young sons, I am always on the look-out for tasty organic and natural products. Let’s face it. Usually organic doesn’t bring to your mind the image of something tasty. Typically it creates the image of something granola-like and utterly tasteless. But increasingly there are more options available for delicious and health conscious food. For instance Applegate products include a variety of meats and cheeses that are organic and natural.
No antibiotics, No chemical preservatives, No growth hormones, No fillers.
When it comes to lunch meat, this is as good as it gets. I don’t even want to think about what is included in the other brands.
This review is not my first experience with Applegate products. I frequent my local Super Target were I had previously purchased a couple of different products. Yes, Applegate does cost more than traditional brands, but when shopping at Super Target I find the prices to be reasonable and certainly cheaper than many other places.
The cheese and ham I recently purchased were happily devoured by my children. They were more than happy to have cheese and meat for snacking and lunch purposes.
On this particular morning I also made my eldest son a ham and cheese sandwich for school. Nothing particularly creative there! Uff, it was too early in the morning:)
But if you are looking to add a little surprise to your children’s lunch here are a few ideas.
Creative Lunch Ideas!
1. Use fun cookie cutter shapes to creative an image inspired lunch. Purchase inexpensive cookie cutters in your children’s favorite characters. Dora, Ironman, Wolverine, the options are limitless. Make a sandwich as you normally do, then cut out the sandwich into the character shape. This could also be done with cheese.
2. Another sandwich idea- creative a puzzle for your children using the sandwich pieces. Simply cut the sandwich into to six or more pieces and have your child try to piece the meal back together.
3. Create a dipping station for your children’s corn dogs. Take little containers and add ketchup, mustard, ranch or whatever seasoning you think your child might like. Then let your children have fun testing out their favorite sauce by dipping their corn dog.
If you are looking for humanely raised meat products with no chemical additives I highly recommend checking out Applegate. And don’t forget to connect via Facebook for additional savings and information.
