Lunchbox Classics Go Organic: Make-it-Yourself Ham and Cheese Lunch Kit

February 2017

Think back to your favorite lunchtime classics. The PB&Js, the make-it-yourself ham and cheese lunch kits, the dunkable cookies and delicious juice boxes. We all have a special place in our heart for these nostalgic lunches, but now that you’re the parent, you may want to include organic foods in your child’s lunch.  Well, what if we told you that your child could enjoy the same fun-filled lunches, but with delicious organic ingredients?  The team at Go Organically® has come up with a video detailing how you can put a natural and organic spin on your child’s favorite lunchbox classics.

In this video, we’re recreating a self-assembly lunch kit using some of our favorite natural and organic foods.  It’s super easy to make and you’ll have the freedom to tailor it to your child’s taste buds. Let’s get started!

What You’ll Need:

Ingredients (preferably organic):

  • Ham
  • Cheese
  • Round Crackers
  • Go Organically® Fruit Snacks

Other tools:

  • Sectioned Lunchbox
  • Round Cookie Cutter

Step 1:  Using a 1 ½” cookie cutter, cut out circles of organic deli meat and cheese.

*Secret tip: if you don’t have a cookie cutter, simply use the lid of a spice jar for the perfect sized circle.

Step 2: Grab a box of round organic crackers to add to the lunch combo to complete the sandwich.

Step 3:  No lunch kit is complete until you add in a tasty treat like a pack of Go Organically® Fruit Snacks made with real fruit!

Step 4: Add each ingredient into its own section of a compartmentalized lunchbox and pair it with your child’s favorite organic fruit juice. And ta-da! You’re done.

In just four easy steps, you’ll feel good about sending your kids to school with an organic version of a timeless lunchtime classic.

Bonus tips:

  1. These lunch kits can be prepared the night before to save you time during your hectic morning!
  2. To keep your kids guessing, try mixing in different meats and cheeses, or different varieties of  Go Organically® Fruit Snacks!
