Add Extra Love to Back-To-School Lunches

Back-to-school means back to packing lunches! Add a little extra love to your little scholar’s lunchbox or bag with these delicious, better-for-you snacks.


Packing the Perfect Lunch

A little love goes a long way when it comes to packing back-to-school lunches. Here’s a lunch idea they’ll heart: 1.) Make a heart-shaped sandwich with gluten-free bread, sunflower butter and all-fruit jelly. 2.) Add baby carrots and celery sticks. 3.) Don’t forget some fresh berries. 4.) Include a sweet surprise worth sharing—Surf Sweets Fruity Bears. These organic treats are allergy friendly so everyone can enjoy them (be sure to add a few extra packs for sharing). 5.) Include a little note to let them know how much you love them.


Allergy-Friendly Bears On A Log

Fun, adorable and delicious, everyone at the lunch table will want to try these allergy-friendly treats! Better yet, they’re really easy to make! All you have to do is spread sunflower butter on celery sticks (banana halves or apple sticks work great too). Top things off with our organically-sweetened Gummy Bears, and voila! your kids will have the perfect shareable treat everyone can eat!


Better-For-You Energy Bites
