My son is in 3rd grade this year, we’re giving him much more responsibility on his long road to independence. He has been learning to plan ahead this year (because, what is it with little boys and last minute everything?), so that means picking out his school clothes the night before, making sure that all of this homework assignments and projects are complete ahead of time, and pre-packing his own school lunch – the right way. He is learning the proper foods to pack with our printable school lunch packing chart!

Chobani Kids Greek Yogurts

We’ve been working on choosing the right foods to pack for lunch, and seriously, this is a work in progress. My son will get the fresh fruit or vegetable portion down, but then add 3 snacks and aĀ candy bar that are just NO. Recently, I’ve been buyingĀ Chobani KidsĀ® Greek Yogurt Pouches and Tubes – full of real fruit andĀ natural, preservative-free ingredients, and live and active cultures to help the digestive system along. My son uses them as the entree portion on the printable school lunch packing chart.

How to Pack your School Lunch Bag, a printable school lunch chart for kids

I try to follow the recommended food plate guidelines, including, fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, protein and grains. After many shady lunch attempts and lots of “Mom, I don’t know what to pack!” whines, I decided that I would make a printable school lunch packing chart for my kids to follow. It’s up on theĀ kitchen wallĀ and serves as a reminder to pick an item from each category, I’ve worked dairy, grains, protein wherever I could while still making sure there were foods that my kids would actually eat.

If your kids need a little help packing the appropriate lunch items, print out ourĀ “Learn to Pack Your School Lunch” chart here. Chobani KidsĀ® Greek Yogurt pouches fit in so well, they actually meet my required daily fruit and dairy standards and my kids love them! They’ve started taking them everywhere, my 4 year old is a fan of the Spiderman strawberry pouch so she brings them along with us as an after school snack.

We’ve tried the Chobani KidsĀ® Pouches in strawberry and grape flavors, and the strawberry Chobani KidsĀ® Tubes. Keep an eye out for special flavors and packaging, including new mixed berry tubes, vanilla and chocolate pouches with Disney’s Doc McStuffins, and Spiderman pocuhes, as shown above. This post was brought to you by Chobani.

Happy school lunch packing!
