Welcome back! Back to the business of packing lunchboxes. Some of us are the lucky ones. Our kids are good eaters. In that case, they should be rewarded with a little sweetness in the lunchbox. No, I’m not talking about those cute little “I love you” notes we like to include every now and then. I’m talking about the actual dessert. And Tastykake has brought forth some great options.
Tastykake Mini Cupcakes and Brownies are individually wrapped packs holding three Tasty bite-sized treats. And with that number, your child could be the giver at the lunch table. On the days your child’s body actually craves those veggies you packed, she could eat those, give away two of the Tastykakes and still have one to enjoy. Talk about spreading the sweetness. Or not. At under 200 calories a pack, it would be okay if your child decided to eat all three cakes. Because let’s face it, those veggies just aren’t appealing some days. It happens.
If you think the veggies may go the way of the microbes, (…you know, the organisms that feed on the food waste…doesn’t everybody have a child that greets them with “Come and get it, boys” as he throws away the food-parts he didn’t finish? Anyway.) you could always sneak in a few bites of fruit. How? Well, the Mini Blueberry Kruffins are crumb-covered muffins made with real blueberries. Yeah, okay. It’s probably not a Healthy Eating Plate serving of fruit, but we do the best we can.
Then, there are the times you really do want to pay homage to the sweet tooth. For that, there are the Mini Swirly Cupcakes, Mini Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes, Mini Candy Topped Brownies, and Mini Koffee Kake Cupcakes. Plenty of perfectly portioned options of sweetness to brighten any child’s day and make you The. Best. Parent. Ever.
