Bring in the New Year with Lunch Box Resolutions

Thank you Del Monte® for Sponsoring this post. 

My husband and I have been well into our weight loss journey since August 31. A big part of us wanting to get healthy is to be better role models for our daughter. It makes it easier for us to succeed in our weight loss efforts because she is a great motivator. Since we are making healthier choices for ourselves we started making healthier choices for her too.

We still have a very picky three year old so it's hard to find healthy choices that she will actually eat. I have tried my best to disguise lots of food and sometimes it has actually worked and sometimes it has been epic fails. For now we just keep trying with different recipes and keep track of the nutrients she is consuming with the foods that she does like.

I went to Walmart to pick up her favorite lunch snacks, Del Monte® Fruit Cup® Snacks and Frigo® Cheeseheads® Cheese Snacks. I can't wait to see the new Del Monte® Fruit & Veggie Fusions coming out next month. I think it's cool that they added vegetable juice to the cup. During the month of January and February of 2016 there will be a “Better for You Lunchbox” booklet with $6.25 in instant coupon savings included with the Del Monte® Fruit Cup® Snacks. This booklet will help us make Lunch Box Resolutions and save money at the same time.

Now that the New Year is a couple of days away I wanted to make a goal of giving her healthier lunches. I thought this would also be helpful to all of you mommies who have kids going back to school after the holiday break. The holidays are full of eating parties and celebrations so what better way than to start the new year with healthier foods.

What New Year's Resolutions do you have with your kids? 


  1. I don't have any with my son. He is already a huge vegetable and fruit fan. He will ask for a salad before any other vegetable out there. And snacks we keep pretty good too. He has been on an apple sauce and pudding kick in addition to fruit and some ice pops. Thankfully cookies and others things are truly treats we get every once in a while.

  2. HaHa I just bought some of these fruit fusions yesterday at the grocery store. It's a great way to sneak a little veggie into my daughters diet.

  3. My son tried the new fruit cups and love them! The watermelon in the one variety is so delicious!

  4. I don't have any children but in all honesty I really want to try that fruit in veggie juice!! What a great way to get in those vitamins and nutrients.

  5. Sounds like an interesting combination. We're switching back to fruit cups in our lunch because they're more convenient, so thanks for the info. about the new product.

  6. In Mexico, Dia del Niño (Children's Day) takes place each year on April 30, and it's a big deal! Many parents buy their children a gift, and schools hold big celebrations, complete with games, candy, music, performances, piñatas and much more.visit here
