After a summer filled with fun and play, it can be hard to get back in the swing of things once the school bells start ringing again. “Routine” becomes the name of the game from homework to packing lunches. It can all get a little stale – but it doesn’t have to be.
We can’t do anything about the homework, but we can help with the lunches. The goal is to be healthy and keep our kids fueled up through the day all while packing something they will actually eat.
That’s where StarKist® Albacore White Tuna can really help out by providing a flavorful and heart-healthy meal option. By choosing StarKist® for your child’s lunch, you’re giving them at least 12g of protein and 110mg of omega-3’s per serving – a great way to energize their midday meal and keep them feeling full all day long!
Back to School Suggestion: Pack lunches the night before or at least prep the ingredients so all you have to do in the morning is put them together. Not only will you have more time in the morning, you will feel more organized when you go to bed just knowing you have it all planned out.
StarKist® also makes it easy to be creative when you’re getting into the back to school routine. Whether you’re planning a large meal for the family or just prepping an afternoon snack, it’s easy to satisfy cravings and fill up any tummy!
