WHERE ARE THE MANGOES & PINEAPPLES ??? : Ready Pac simplifies back to school

Summer is officially coming to a close, and parents everywhere are either breaking out in a cold sweat or rejoicing in anticipation of the fast approaching school year. 

It’s time to begin shopping for new clothes, school supplies, and stocking the fridge with food for school lunches and snacks. 

According to a panel of mom bloggers on, packing a healthy lunch is one of the top back to school challenges parents face. 

“Sending kids to school with a nutritious lunch isn’t always easy. Although school lunches are mandated to be healthier this year, many parents still prefer their kids bring food from home for both financial and health reasons.”

There are so many options on the grocery shelves that shopping for the right choices can become a daunting task. 

Linda Spiker, author of, suggests, “If you buy prepared food, make it good food! Always pack veggies, and be sure to add variety. Nothing makes your child want to trade their lunch for a friend’s Hostess cupcake faster than opening their lunchbox to the same ol’ same ol’ every darn day.” 

That’s why Ready Pac created Ready Snax®, a perfect meal component for parents who want to send their kids back to school with something a bit more healthy. 

Ready Snax are an ingenious array of on-the-go snack packs that pair fresh fruits and veggies with a delicious dip or treat. 

They are available in 6 clever flavour combinations, including:

** Carrots, Grapes & Cheese with Pretzels

** Fruit, Cheese & Flatbread Crackers

** Apples & Cheese with Caramel Dip

** Veggies & Cheese with Ranch Dip

** Veggies, Hummus & Sunflower Seeds

** Apples, Granola & Yogurt

“By offering a wider variety of delicious and healthy components, Ready Snax helps parents find more ways to introduce daily healthy eating habits to their kids without the boredom and limitation we traditionally think of in terms of nutrition,”
said Tristan Simpson, Vice President of Corporate Communications at Ready Pac.

Ready Snax aren’t just for school options either. 

They also are great portable snacks for kids and parents too! 

According to Technomic’s 2014 The Snacking Occasion Consumer Trend Report, Over half of today’s consumers (51%) say they snack at least twice a day, portability is extremely important (60%), and half indicate that healthfulness is very important to them when choosing a snack.

 Ready Snax’s convenient packaging and everyday low pricing make them ideal for delicious on-the-go healthy snacking for kids in between meals or parents on the move. 

Ready Snax gives everyone the freedom to eat healthier whenever hunger cravings strike!

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra.
