Oscar Mayer Lunchables

It’s back to school time around here, my oldest is going to school for the very first time and it’s been a big change in our household.

One thing that I’ve had to think about is her lunches to take to school. Making sure she gets what she likes but still maintains a healthy diet like she does at home. I thought no problem! But, it’s not as easy as it seems to pack up that lunch, things she takes to school is a little different than what she has at home since she can’t keep things refrigerated or warm them up.

Oscar Mayer Lunchables Lunch Combinations helps out with this dilemma. It not only satisfies my daughter and her pickiness but it also provides me with the convenience and healthy options for lunch. I’ve never been a big fan of Lunchables, they didn’t seem that healthy, had loads of sodium and were expensive, but with the new line of Oscar Mayer Lunchables Lunch Combinations there’s a little less worry about those things (except the price, I still think they’re pretty pricey).

The new Lunchables include things such as spring water, sub sandwiches and apple sauce. We decided to try the Turkey + Cheddar Crackers Combos which came with a small bottle of spring water, a single serve packet of Kool-Aid (which I was not particularly fond of, we don’t drink Kool-Aid in our home), and some Nilla Wafers. My daughter just loved it. However, the Lunchable box was a bit too big for her lunch box, so I had to take it apart and put it into our own containers to fit, I was a bit worried about the Kool-Aid packet as it was RED not a great thing to bring to school, I just imagined it all over my Kindergartners clothing, but she did fine. Since this was her very first Lunchable she did love it, and has since asked for another one, however for the price it doesn’t look like it will be happening anytime soon when I can pack a lunch myself cheaper. The convenience is great, I can’t deny that, makes packing a lunch much easier and takes the thought out of it, but for us, it’s not a weekly or monthly thing.

There are six new varieties which include: Turkey + Cheddar Sub Sandwich, Ham + American Sub Sandwich, Turkey + Cheddar Cracker Combos, Ham +American Cracker Combos, Deep Dish Cheese Pizza and Deep Dish Pepperoni Pizza. Both the Turkey + Cheddar Sub Sandwich and Deep Dish Cheese Pizza meet the Kraft Foods Sensible Solution criteria for nutritional value.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central on behalf of Oscar Mayer Lunchables and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
