Now that school is back in session, we need to start planning those after school meals and snacks. Lifestyle contributor Limor Suss is here to help us out with some easy meal and snack options.
Stonyfield, known for its delicious organic kids yogurt, wants to help take the pressure off parents with the launch of the ultimate lunchbox for parents: the Breakbox Collection. Because parents deserve a break especially during the back to school season!
To help relieve and champion parents, Stonyfield is offering three themed lunchboxes designed for what parents really need to get through their day, including Adult Time Out, You Got This, and Hide in My Closet. These boxes come filled with snacks to fuel you throughout the day and come with an encouraging note from another parent around the world. These Boxes can be purchased for yourself, or gifted to a parent you think needs an extra break, for $50! All proceeds will be donated to No Kids Hungry and is available for purchase here.
