Back to School with Naturipe Blueberries
This is a sponsored post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Weekly Bite has partnered with Naturipe Blueberries and I couldn’t be more excited! My kid’s love blueberries and having them available in ready-to-eat single serving packs makes it very convenient to give my kid’s fruit on the go.
Here’s how we’ve been enjoying our Naturipe blueberries:
Here are some quick facts about Naturipe blueberries:
- First fresh blueberry product to be ready-to-eat and sold in single-serve portions perfect for snacking
- Each pack contains 1.25 ounces of fresh blueberries, which is a perfect size for many pint-sized learners
- Provides 20 calories, vitamin C, fiber and beneficial antioxidants, called anthocyanins, which contribute to the berry’s blue color
- Available nationally at retailers including Walmart, Safeway, Save Mart, Market Basket, Harris Teeter, HI-LO, Winn-Dixie
Naturipe blueberries also make the perfect addition to school lunches:
When packing a school lunch I try to include something from each food group and make sure they are foods that my kid’s love. This includes protein (like lean meats, nut butters, and cheese), veggies, fruits, and a whole grain complex carbohydrate. I always try to include my children in the preparation of their lunch the evening before school. The more you involve your children in preparing their food, the more likely they are to eat it. Packing a healthy lunch gives a child the nutrients they need to succeed in school.
Naturipe’s Washed and Ready-to-Eat Blueberries are a great option for parents seeking convenient options to boost fresh produce servings in their children’s meals. Also they are conveniently packaged to fit into just about every lunchbox!
Having prepackaged ready -to-eat produce options such as Naturipe Blueberries make for a quick and easy way to fit fruit in our kid’s diet. As a busy working parent, I know that time is a precious commodity and these little treats will make our lives that much easier. Involve your children in the kitchen and teach them healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.
