Kid Tested, POUND Mama Approved

The best way we’ve found to stay on top of our to-do’s when we’re in a summertime state-of-mind is to prep our food in advance—especially lunch. Why treat only yourself to nutritious, healthy, brain-boosting food? Your kids need the same, if not MORE nutrients to develop, grow and thrive.

That’s why we’re going head-to-head with the typical lunchtime go-to’s: lunchables, fruit roll ups, sugar-laden drinks and additive-drenched snack packs. Grab-and-go goodies are fast, cheap and well-liked by kids everywhere—we totally understand—that’s why we’ve designed a cost-effective, convenient and delicious lunchtime alternative for your kids that will keep them happy, well-fed and wanting more!
