DLM Solves Morning Chaos

Are your mornings as chaotic as mine? Trying to get everything done before you run out of the house is a daily challenge. I have the best intentions of packing a healthy lunch and maybe an afterschool snack everyday, but most days it just doesn’t get done. In my house, making coffee is always the first priority!

This school year I am going to rely on our Lunchboxes and 4Squares. They are perfect in both size and content, and you can pick them up on your way home from work or on the way to school.

Each Lunchbox has a sandwich with our freshly baked bread filled with Ham and Cheddar, Turkey and Cheddar or classic PB & J. Nestled alongside each is a crisp red delicious apple, string cheese, Goldfish crackers, and a box of raisins.

One of my favorite “packed” lunches is our Deli 4Square. I like picking out my favorites and being able to eat a little bit of four different salads.

Instead of vending machines filled with over-processed junk, our 4Squares have lots of healthy snack options like hummus with pita, carrots and celery, or fresh-cut veggies with ranch dip. Or pick up DLM’s healthy version of snackables that are chock full of our turkey or ham, cheese, grapes, and Graham crackers.

With a little more time in the morning, maybe I will be able to read the newspaper before dinner time!
