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.”

“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!
