You know that mom. The one who makes her kids lunches from scratch, including the bread on the sandwich. She packs them celery and broccoli, and they actually eat it. Nothing in her kid’s lunches comes from a package, it’s all by her very own hands. One one hand, I envy this mom. I envy her “have-it-all-togetherness” or at least her ability to appear like she does. On the other hand, I really want to punch her for making me feel totally inadequate.
Because I am obviously not that mom.
Sure, I have my moments. I have made granola bars at home. I have made my own bread. I have even canned my own salsa. I really did try to be that mom, but it just didn’t work for me. And for a long time, I felt guilty like I wasn’t giving my kids the best possible.
Thankfully, it has become easier for me to pack wholesome lunches and offer my kids on-the-go snacks even though I don’t always have the time to make them myself because of brands like MadeGood.
Made Good Granola Minis Chocolate Banana, Case of 6 BoxesMadeGood is a family owned brand that has a passion for creating products with exceptional nutrition that also taste great while respecting people and the environment. Their products include granola bars and granola minis in a variety of flavors.
MadeGood products are made in a facility that is free of 8 common allergens: peanut, tree nuts, wheat, dairy, egg, soy, sesame, fish and shellfish which make them school safe. MadeGood products are organic, non-GMO and gluten-free. And one of my favorite things about MadeGood products is that they contain the nutrients from a full serving of vegetables!
Sometimes I know we aren’t eating as many vegetables as we should, so it’s nice to know that my kids will still get the nutrition they need on days when our meals are less than optimum. It’s not a replacement for a healthy, balanced diet, but it sure is a nice boost for when there might be gaps due to busy schedules or other things.
My kids are huge fans of MadeGood, especially the Granola Minis. My daughter insists that she can taste the vegetables “but likes them anyway” although I promise that you don’t actually taste the vegetables. My son and I love, love, love the Chocolate Banana, but they are all super tasty.
