LiVewell Healthy Lunches Weekend Picnic - GIVEAWAY

Little G saw how fun Big E's lunches have been this week so we decided to have a family picnic so she could have a fun packed lunch too. But this time we decided on Breakfast for Lunch!

Here's what we packed:
  • Waffles and syrup
  • Yogurt
  • Fruit
  • Carrots and dip
In the case of these whole grain waffles I used a mixture of rice, potato, corn and aramanth flours and made them at home so Big E could eat them too, despite his wheat allergy. And I know carrots aren't really a breakfast food, but I try to have at least one vegetable and one fruit for every meal and I couldn't think of a better breakfast vegetable. Thoughts?

This week of focusing on Healthy Lunches is part of Intermountain Healthcare's LiVewell Healthy Lunches campaign where they are offering a GIVEAWAY! We've really enjoyed the Rubbermaid Lunchblox set and I know you will too. Make sure to sign in here for your chance to win one!

The Intermountain Healthcare LiVewell Page also has free printables on planning your own week of Healthy Lunches, be sure to check those out. Happy Lunching!

LiVewell Healthy Lunches with an Allergic Kid - GIVEAWAY

This week I'm participating in Intermountain Healthcare's LiVewell Healthy Lunches campaign. They've provided me and other local bloggers some great info on meal planning and lunch suggestions for kids lunches as well as a Rubbermaid Lunchblox set. You could get one too - just enter here.

Some of you may not know this but Big E has some serious food allergies to wheat, eggs and nuts. Since wheat is the main ingredient in bread, cookies, crackers and basically everything it seems, it makes our lunch choices more limited.

LiVewell Healthy Lunches Day 1 - GIVEAWAY!

Those of you who read my blog regularly know that I'm not a food blogger, but food is an essential part of everyone's day. The more energy my tots have, the more we can enjoy the outdoors together.

So when Intermountain Healthcare's LiVewell crew invited me to be part of their Healthy School Lunches campaign and giveaway I accepted. Throughout this week look for our healthy lunch ideas and let me know what you pack for your kids' lunch!

Part of the Healthy Lunches program was to try out the Rubbermaid Lunchblox that you all could win as part of this giveaway. Big E saw me putting together his lunch in the Bento Box style cube and immediately said "I want that for lunch!"

LiVewell Healthy Lunches GIVEAWAY!

Last night I was invited to a free school lunch as part of Intermountain Health Care's LiVewell #HealthyLunches campaign. They invited some local Utah bloggers to a lunch-for-dinner event discussing sending kids to school with good food. Even for those out of state, this Healthy Lunches campaign is something worth checking out - the resources are great and there's a GIVEAWAY!

The event was great, with a presentation by Dietitian Mindy Probst on the government's ChooseMyPlate guidelines and how to incorporate that into lunches for kids. It was news to me that The Food Guide Pyramid no longer exists, and I was glad to see an emphasis on including a variety of foods in each meal.
