Now that school is back in session, many families are dealing with busier than normal schedules. It seems that when the kids aren’t in school, parents are either busy helping with homework or driving the constant carpool to after-school lessons, extra-curricular activities, and sports. This is certainly the case for our families and we feel like we are always on the go!
With all of these added items on the calendar, sometimes eating healthy falls by the wayside. That’s why we were so excited to discover the Ready Pac Foods line of Bistro Bowl salads and Ready Snax snack options. They are healthy, on-the-go meals and snacks that are perfect for our busy back-to-school schedule.
Making snack time easy
Like most kids, ours would snack all day long if given the chance. Because of this we like to make sure our fridge is stocked with healthy options. We also know that kids love anything in a package, so they get really excited about Ready Pac Food’s snack cups that are filled with sweet, fresh fruit. The single-serving sizes make them perfect for a snack at home or in lunch boxes.
There are days we spend a lot of time in the car. Right after school, the kids quickly get homework done and then change before we rush out the door on the way to sports practices. The snack packs are easy and quick to grab on the way out the door. Plus, they are filled with good-for-them foods that will fuel their little bodies all the way through those hot soccer practices and hold them over until dinnertime. Our favorites are the veggies, flatbread and hummus, or the apples, yogurt and trail mix.
Sometimes we avoid salads for lunch because the prep-time is more involved and messier than other lunch options. However, we love a good salad with flavorful toppings and the Bistro Bowl Salads make it simple to enjoying delicious, restaurant-style salads at home.

Everything you need is packed into one bowl — even the fork — so that you can easily enjoy a savory salad, even on the go. These have been our go-to lunch option recently and even our older kids have started asking to take these to school for lunch.
Healthy eating for busy families
It’s so easy to fall into the fast food trap and make the drive-thru run, but just because we are busy does not mean that has to be our only option. Ready Pac Foods has so many options to keep us eating healthy during the hustle and bustle of back to school and flavors that the whole family can enjoy!
