Put some love in their lunches with MIXIM

Send a little love with their lunches

What you pack in your kids’ lunches is important. You’re fueling their bodies and brains for the hours they’re in the classroom — and it’s a long day for little ones! Lunches don’t have to be fancy to be nutritious, tasty and a reminder of how much you care about their day at school.

Make them smile with nutritious treats

Yogurt is one of my lunchbox staples. My daughter loves it, and I feel like it’s a good source of nutrition for the second half of her school day. Ehrmann® MIXIM Greek Yogurt is going to find a spot in our lunchbox rotation this fall. Little things can make a big difference for kids, and I know my (almost) first grader smiles every time she sees the heart-shaped yogurt container in the refrigerator. Like Ehrmann USA on Facebook for fun, printable lunchbox surprises. Knowing I can make her smile when she opens her lunch is an extra bonus!

Why you’ll love MIXIM

MIXIM yogurt is a fat-free greek yogurt that packs a protein punch while offering a little extra treat. Available in six flavor combinations, you can consistently send your child’s favorite or mix and match for a lot of lunchbox love. Each of the flavor combinations has a crunchy component, which can help the yogurt feel a little more substantial. Whether the MIXIM yogurt is used as the main component of a lunch or a side dish for a sandwich or cheese and crackers, kids will love the sweetness of the mix-ins. The 5.3 ounce serving isn’t so large that yogurt will go to waste, but it’s sufficient to use as the main portion if your kids struggle to make it through their lunches in the time provided.

Why your kids will love MIXIM

One of the best parts about MIXIM yogurt is the design of the container. The heart shape does more than bring a smile to a child’s face. Bending the curved mix-in containers into the main yogurt section is the perfect angle to dump in the mix-ins. Kids are able to add the “treats” to their yogurt on their own, without worrying about spilling or dropping during a spoon transfer. Some of the flavors seem like treats — my kids think they’ve hit the lunchbox jackpot when I pack the Blueberry and Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites. MIXIM is a nice compromise if your kids want a sweet treat in their lunch each day, but you’re more worried about their health than their candy requests. Pack the yogurt with a side of fruit or ham and cheese roll-ups, and your kids will have a healthy lunch that even picky eaters will love.

Ehrmann MIXIM is currently available in: CA, AZ, NV, HI, NM, CO, TX and WY.
