Reusable Lunch Box Notes

Our summer has flown by and it’s already time to start thinking about packing lunches for back to school. All summer we’ve been snacking our way back to school with Dannon® Danimals® from Walmart and both my daughters have already decided their favorite yogurt and smoothie flavors for upcoming school lunches. Our lunches will also include coordinating reusable lunch box notes to make that little break in the day extra special.

Have some fun packing back to school lunches with reusable lunch box notes.

With the busy back to school routine heading our way we are using Walmart’s Online Grocery Pickup Service. Shopping with my daughters for school supplies is not the most fun thing to do when it’s 117° outside. The grocery pickup service is so easy to use and saves us time when we certainly don’t want to be walking through a parking lot.

Pick up Dannon® Danimals® at your local Walmart.

Dannon® Danimals® smoothies and pouches are nutritious snacks that parents can feel good about. They are the perfect on the go ready solution that helps fuel kids’ adventures. They have been a staple in our house and will continue to provide a good source of calcium and vitamin D during the day, after school, at practice, homework time and more.

Reusable lunch box notes with favorite lunch items are perfect for back to school.

Danimals® wins the great taste kids love and provide enough variety to keep everyone happy with no artificial ingredients.

  1. Most of the children are very lazy in eating . They only have foods which are favorite to them. These include chocolates , fast food etc. But these food will not provide all the necessary nutrients to them. It is a very nice idea to provide lunch box notes. It will be really interesting for the children. I think all mothers can follow this idea for making their lazy children eat.
