Back to School with That! + GIVEAWAY

For most families school is now back into full swing and life is returning back to its normal routine. In our home the afternoons consist of homework, outside play, dinner, showers and the making of lunches in preparation for the next day. I try and mix their lunch options up to keep it exciting and interesting but the one thing that is always requested is something from the That! range. They don’t care if it’s a That! Dairy Snack or a That! Milkshake, they just want one of them which is quite alright by me because I know that they are a healthier option in comparison to many other products in terms of kids lunch snacks. I like the fact they are convenient, great portion sizes and the kids will always eat them meaning no transferring them from lunch box to fridge continually like many of their yoghurts do!

That! Back to school

As I have mentioned previously on Mad Mummas blog That! Dairy Snack is lunch box friendly, it’s gluten free, contains no preservatives and is a great source of calcium (made with Aussie Milk!) and is 98% fat free. The fact it doesn’t require refrigeration and can be enjoyed straight from the cupboard makes it ideal for not only school but also car trips, camping and when on the go. If you haven’t already tried them make sure you enter the giveaway below for your chance to win some or if you can’t wait that long add them to your shopping list this week! *That! are also running a giveaway on their website so once you have entered the one below pop over and enter that one too!* and just to sweeten the deal a little more enter their facebook giveaway away as well.

    My sons lunchbox is pretty boring,
    He packs the same things every morning.
    An apple a burrito and a yoghurt,
    ‘Try something new’ I often blurt.
    But this is all he wants to take…
    Oh wait he asked for a That!! Milkshake.
    A special treat for my little man,
    Oh how I wish he would just eat ham.

    About as exciting as it gets is different fruit and sandwich fillings! Always searching for inspiration. Would love to give That! a try 🙂

    Lunch is exciting because they don’t know what the note will say.

    little containers filled with sultanas, cheese cubes, blueberries or other little snacks, something different each day

    We make sandwiches with ham or vegemite and then use sandwich cutters such as flowers or bunny or bear animals to make the sandwiches look creative. We also put chopped rockmelon, strawberries, pineapple or watermelon on fruit skewers. Chop celery and carrot into sticks and then give the kids some french onion dip to dip their sticks into. Also bake their favourite home made muffins or biscuits with the kids, they then love eating them at school. Adding a smiley note to their lunch box is also a great idea, and gets the kids excited to receive something special from mum.

    A sealed container with strawberries and grapes, and if these are not in season, I place home preserves into the containers instead, the children always get there fruit this way.

    I pack a little something extra in my child’s kid lunch box for a healthy mind! Like a note saying I love you or even a simple smiley face. Sometimes I’m even creative and come up with something like a funny cartoon or a saying that I know will put a smile on their face.

    A note!
    Some days it is loving, other days it is funny,
    But everyday it makes lunch extra yummy!

    A delicious range of homemade dips
    Served with sesame seed biscuit strips
    Or fruit kebabs, they look divine
    The kids’ favourite fruits all in a line
    And simple cherry tomatoes and squares of cheese
    Are a welcome favourite and certainly please!
    Sticks of cucumber, or mini feta pies
    Are some healthy snacks this mum supplies!

    I think variety is the key, anything becomes boring if you have it enough! I love adding a frozen juice, a low-fat dip for veggie sticks or different kinds of sandwiches like wraps, quesadillas and turkish rolls.

    This year I have been putting small fruit jelly cups and That! dairy snacks in with the kids sandwiches and fruit and they are completely loving it. They always have a surprise because they never know what flavours they will end up with, and they are nutritious and fun and keep their energy up to get them through their day.

  13. Rachel
    05/02/2014 / 3:42 pm

    Even though I offer variety, they want to stay with their favourites – sandwich with ham and cheese, a few sultanas and vitaweet biscuits so they can squeeze the butter and vegie through the holes. So I instead use a variety of sweet little containers to put their food in – ladybug and animal shaped round containers, different sandwich cutters for different sandwich shapes each day and a few cute signs that are attached to toothpicks, like ‘Have a Tasty Day’ or ‘You’re as cool as a cucumber’. They get a kick out of seeing what message and containers they get each day. But I’m sure That! Dairy Snacks or Milkshakes would take pride of place if we were lucky to win.

    I pack different variety of food in his lunch box everyday in smaller quantity.
    For example, crackers + cheese, cut fruits, muffins, one piece of chocolate (I don’t give him this everyday), chilled fruit pouch (especially in summer) and main meal (pasta, onigiri, sushi, etc).
    So far he’s liking it as his box is full with different food and I try to make his bento with different combination everyday.

  15. Rebecca Broderick

    I actually put a little note to my girls telling them how much I love them, have a great day etc.

    Monkey tail sandwiches – instead of a plain old sandwich, cut the crusts off a piece of bread and flatten slightly with a rolling pin, cover with chosen toppings and roll up like sushi, cut into 3-4 slices.

  17. Fiona
    08/02/2014 / 11:07 am

    My little one is fruits addict. He eat nearly all kinds of fruits. Also he loves puree. So I make the veggies that he doesn’t like with fruits into puree to boost his appetite.

    While the kids are at school On Mondays I bake something yummy for there lunch boxes for the week and keep it a secret, I have done this for 14yrs now. Even Hubby gets it in his lunch box! I wish my mum had surprised me like this as a child as I got the same thing everyday.

  23. 15/02/2014 / 12:31 pm

    We have “Surprise Friday”. Where I sneak in a few special treats, leave a note in the lunch box and put in fancy napkins, straws and cultery. This way I can be pretty boring the rest of the week and it makes Fridays lunch super exciting!!

  24. Jessica Ashbrooke
    16/02/2014 / 4:29 pm

    I cut her sandwiches into different shapes and sometime throw in a little roses
    Chocolate I’d I think she has been good.

  25. Michelle

    loves finger foods so cut up apple carrot sticks, cabana (spotty meat as she calls it) cheese.

  27. Graham Buckingham
    19/02/2014 / 5:28 pm

    We like to cook something different each night for the kids like “honey Crackes” or coco pop slices or even rocky road chocolate and marshmallow

  28. Kylie B
    19/02/2014 / 5:43 pm

    Sometimes I hide a little treat in their lunch.
    Hiding a couple of chocolate coated sultanas in with their sultanas and cheese snacks is their favorite surprise.

  29. Phillipa Giltay
    19/02/2014 / 5:58 pm

    I’ll alternate sandwich fillings, wraps, different fruits, cheese, yoghurts etc, I have lots of things that I rotate so the kids don’t get bored of their lunches

  30. Sonya
    19/02/2014 / 9:32 pm

    Toasted cheese and ham sandwich, and a wholemeal date scone. It’s all she wants, every day!

  31. Allison
    19/02/2014 / 10:08 pm

    Lots of fruit and dairy but our secret is to pack the lunch together because then she is far more likely to eat what we’ve packed if she’s been involved.

    I tell my boys what I put in their lunchboxes each morning, except for 1 item. Then each day when I pick them up they excitedly tell me the ‘surprise’ they found in their lunches. It may be a dehydrated fruit strap, a homemade slice or biscuits or something else I have baked.

    • Candice E

    19/02/2014 / 10:45 pm

    He has different things each day, he chooses what he wants which i often “swap” some things that i don’t want him to take.
    I win Most of the time but sometimes i cave lol. Yoghurt, cheese stick, banana, fruit bar and a sandwich is what he takes.

  35. jarree shelverton
    20/02/2014 / 11:49 am

    Im really lucky my boys love salad rolls/wraps/sandwhiches, I just mix it up with what we have in the fridge.
    Fruit is a must, they love it when I make little containers of chopped up fruit instead of the whole piece. I find they eat more this way too.
    For recess I usally give some rice crakers or salads or something homemade like a muffin or bickies.
    I especially don’t over load there lunches, they just get over whelmed and dont eat it.
    They have a fruit break where they eat fruit before recess which i think is a wonderful idea that the whole school follows, which teaches kids the importance of good eating.

  36. Nik
    20/02/2014 / 3:40 pm

    My daughter is a weird little aspie (and I mean that in the nicest possible way – we think she’s awesome) so she likes her lunch to be the same every day with only minor variations. So, rather than mixing up her lunch and pushing her out of her comfort zone, to keep things interesting, I change what my “little lunch love note” says each day.

  37. Belinda Moxey
    20/02/2014 / 7:32 pm

    I have stamps I use to cut the sandwiches into interesting shapes. Please mad mummas they need something more interesting like That!

    Crackers and fruit all finger food size so it wont take long to eat and yoghurt but would love them to be able to try That! Dairy Snack and That! Milkshake really thing they will make lunch more exciting.

    Trial and error I confess,
    However being a mummy I know there is a need to impress!
    I attempted shaping Bread! Vegies and Fruit!
    This “creative” idea fizzled out after a few months and each child no longer thinks it’s a hoot!
    After much research and baking,
    Everyone’s tastebuds are dancing and shaking!
    It’s mummy’s “ School Surprise”,
    Need not fear I am nutritionally wise!
    “Coconut Chai Balls”! “Apple and Cinnamon Balls”, “Apricot and Honey Balls”; the list is endless,
    AND I can guarantee each recipe does impress!
    Snack size!
    AND each day there is always a sumptuous surprise,
    I produce in large batches and freeze,
    Preparing for my kids is truly affordable and a breeze!

  41. 22/02/2014 / 1:06 pm

    I keep it simple – add a homebaked treat or green/amber ‘packaged’ snack and I always seal it with a kiss.

  42. Jodie Harlow
    22/02/2014 / 11:20 pm

    Cut outs in the centre such as a dog bone, gingerbread man or starfish. A And then the latest is baby carrots with the stalks still on.

    23/02/2014 / 4:33 pm

    Well, I have three young boys with one still at home. I’ve tried fancy cut-outs but got told off as it was ‘sooooo embarrassing mum!!’ and anything that requires a lot of chewing will ultimately get half-eaten as they just wanna hit the playground! They do love their ‘suckies’ like the Vaalia yoghurt pouches I’ve been buying lately as they take a few seconds to devour. I’m yet to try That! pouches. To make their lunchboxes interesting, I just change sandwich fillings, ‘suckie’ flavours, different crackers/muesli bars and different fruit. Little do they know but what’s in their lunchbox all depends on whats on special at the supermarket that week!!

  45. Kirsten W
    23/02/2014 / 4:46 pm

    As I’m not the chef in our house any lunch packed by me will always be a surprise to my kids – a surprise if it’s edible!

  47. Christy Seymour
    23/02/2014 / 8:17 pm

    different fruits and veggies….a wrap with different fillings in each half or a sandwich in the shape of different animals. ….frozen yoghurt which melts & is still cold at lunch time & cow bell cheese. i try to put something different in my sons lunch box every day so it doesn’t get too boring.

  48. Sharee
    23/02/2014 / 8:30 pm

    I pack little notes containing interesting facts. Always funny watching him try and remember (sometime make up) when I question him. At least it makes him open his lunchbox. In regards to food, has to be finger food. Carrot sticks generally go down well.

  49. Kylie Bowers
    23/02/2014 / 11:02 pm

    I love to bake something different each week to add a little something extra in there lunch boxes, this week its Pancakes!

    24/02/2014 / 9:43 am

    The lunchbox routine certainly gives us food for thought,
    Lollies and chippies are good for naught!
    A lil bit of this, a lil bit of That!
    And try to make it look like I didn’t pull it out of my ….hat!
    But in all reality, I want her to say, yum Mum!
    So I pack some fruit & veg and a serve of calcium!

    I get T1 and T2 (aka – “The Teens”) to pick something they would like to cook each weekend – it can be anything as long as one is sweet and the other savoury (and they swap each week). Things like mini quiches, banana cake, muffins, cheese biscuits – pretty much anything with some nutritional value that I know they will eat – especially if they make it themselves. We usually make up a big batches so the toddler and I can have some for out lunches at home too.

  62. helen boucher
    25/02/2014 / 7:28 pm

    homemade rock cakes, chocolate crackles, slices just like my mum gave me,
    fresh fruit, cheese sticks, various sandwiches, little quiches are a big hit or zucchini slice.

    I make sure I STICK lots in…

    providing calcium and energy,
    eaten quickly before he runs off to play!

  70. Judith Senese

  73. 26/02/2014 / 9:22 pm

    I’m still at a stage where I’m experimenting with my toddler, one day he’ll like something and the next he doesn’t. One winner in our house is my home made muesli bars with oats, banana, a little bit of honey, pepitas and cranberrys baked in the oven. Goes down a treat.

  74. Cate
    26/02/2014 / 9:28 pm

    PMy little one devours his frozen yoghurt first,
    But he doesn’t eat the veggies- they must be cursed!
    So I’m just a little bit sneaky I’ll admit to you,
    I often wrap up a mini quiche or sushi it’s true!
    With lots of ‘hidden’ veggies its the perfect snack,
    And none of it in his lunchbox comes back.
    If I put a few black and green olives in,
    The most Brownie points I do win!

  75. Alicia Webster
    26/02/2014 / 9:29 pm

    I put a different type of sandwich in my three kids’ lunch sacks everyday. I invent bizarre combinations and my only request is that they at least take one bite (and I check). Sometimes my “inventions” are great hits (sweet potato, hummus, and avocado on wheat) and sometimes not so much (gherkins, sliced boiled egg, and Tofutti on chapati). I like to show them that food can be fun and they are always curious to see what mum has come up with this time !

  76. Karla Oleinikoff
    26/02/2014 / 9:39 pm

    Shapes! I cut sandwiches, apple slices and anything else I can think of into fun shapes. The kids love that their lunches aren’t boring, and they tend to eat it all.

    Our Miss 6 has just started school… She says she is now a BIG girl.. So, she wants BIG girl lunches (like Daddy). At the moment, we are going through the vegetable slice routine for lunch.. She also has fruit and some cheese..
