My Ocean Spray Back-to-School #LunchBoxMaster Ideas!

From a delicious sip of sweet-crisp cranberry juice, to fun and flavorful Craisins® Dried Cranberries, it’s the little things that can make you victorious over any lunchtime challenge. As busy moms and dads we are always looking to make certain tasks easier especially, lunch. And that's where Ocean Spray and I come in. I have been asked to take the Lunch Box Master challenge. What's that you ask? - Simply it's tips and tricks to make you a lunch box packing pro! And don't forget you too can enter (info below) and win you very own lunch box set. Share your tips on how to be a lunch box master. 

Here are some of the Ocean Spray Products I used to create my #LunchBoxMaster

Here are the PACt extract water or Sparkling drinks inside the lunchbox
Now that Back-to-School is in full swing and we are trading beach bags for lunch bags, I wanted to create a few simple, easy and healthy ideas with Ocean Spray's help. My goal is to give the kids healthy options using some of the Craisins, variety of products. So that's Tip 1 - Variety! Ocean Spray was kind enough to send me several types of snacks and drinks to create my own mixes for lunch. 

Tip 2 - Use a strong, medium sized lunch bag that is insulted to get everything inside including the drink. Also, the new Craisins Fruit Clusters and Greek Yogurt Craisins were a great choice healthy and delicious both were satisfyingly sweet too. Tip 3 - I put about a handful of each in a ziplock bag plus a small apple with a sandwich and that's a lunch box master success. 

Whether you are refueling a family of five or just yourself, Ocean Spray has tips, recipes and nutritious offerings that will help you become a lunchbox packing pro. 

Tip 4 - Top a Turkey Sandwich with craisins for that extra sweet zing to liven up boring turkey. As you can see from the pictures below, the 2 craisins treats and a sparkling cranberry drink  complete the meal. I really liked the Sparkling Cranberry drink because, it tastes awesome and has no added sugar!! Very important for parents, I don't like the kids drinking sugary drinks at school or home for that matter. 

  • From a delicious sip of sweet-crisp cranberry juice, to fun and flavorful Ocean Spray® Craisins Dried Cranberries, it’s the little things that can make you victorious over any lunchtime challenge. Tip 5 - Pack a few extras in the lunchbox for that mid-morning craving. The craisin boxes are such a great size, not too much and they fit perfectly in the lunchbox container.

  • The cranberry’s bold taste, vibrant color and endless versatility make it the perfect addition to any lunch. Liven up your meals with a pop of color and flavor with Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries. Oh yes, don’t forget to pack a drink! lol. Tip 6 - Try Ocean Spray® single serve juices, again it's the perfect size so there's no waste and it's got 1 serving of fruit in it! The Sparkling juice drinks are very tasty and refreshing. 
  • Or new PACt® Cranberry Extract Water, which is the perfect hydration companion.  I tried the Cranberry Raspberry and Cranberry Blood Orange flavors. I liked both but, the blood orange was my favorite. I really liked the orange/cranberry flavor. Both were delicious and refreshing especially ice cold. 
  • The PACt drinks have great health benefits too. 50 cranberries PAC (proanthocyanidins) the good, good stuff are in each drink and they are also low-cal and have no GMO's either. 

One of the things I found to be very easy and fun was using the Ocean Spray Lunchbox Separation Container. Talk about perfect for an all together easy carry lunch, especially for kids. And for those kids that don't like their food to touch the container has a separator so the food doesn't combine.  Tip 7 - Place salad on one side/craisins or Craisins Fruit Clusters on the other.  Add either to the salad for a more satisfying lunch! 

Here's why I really loved this product because, it's so convenient. I mean it makes life super easy with a fork and knife having a built in compartment. Right on top of food container is where they have a snap in area build right into the lid. 

Here are some of the healthy and tasty lunch box snacks, I put in there.  A craisins box, greek yogurt craisins or a few milk chocolate craisins.
