PUFF! A New Snack Is Here & a Giveaway

I am constantly on the lookout for new and exciting snacks for my boys’ school lunches so they don’t have to constantly have the same thing over and over. It would get quite repetitive and boring after a while if they had the same thing all the time. You may have seen the new Uncle Tobys Puffs that have recently hit the shelves in supermarkets; to me they appear to be a mix of muesli bar and LCMs.

If you ask the kids they are awesome, delicious and a great snack option. For me they are not only convenient but each bar contains 36% Australian grown wholegrain and are free from artificial flavours and colours. It’s a win-win for both the kids and I.

They are available in 3 flavours: Berry, Choc and Caramel. My 6 year old loves the berry Puffs most while my 4 year old favours the caramel. These retail for $3.99 for a box of 6.

**GIVEAWAY TIME**

I have 15 boxes of the NEW Uncle Tobys Puffs to giveaway. 5x Lucky readers will receive 3 boxes each to sample the new flavours.

    For my fussy little eater I find making food look pretty and sitting down with her like we’re having a picnic is the best way to ensure she eats her lunch!

    Sometimes they get a sandwich cut into jigsaw shapes, or I will pop in a healthy salad wrap,some carrot sticks and crackers as a treat.

It’s fun for him and gets him to eat healthy

    I tag team with my husband – different person, different choice ideas, different food to put into his lunchbox. I get bored making lunches each night so I’m sure Mr 9 gets sick of eating them. Throw in a healthy option for a canteen lunch every now and again. If only ‘mixing it up’ meant putting the apple on the left in his lunchbox instead of on the right!

    I buy three different types of snacks each fortnight and add something new to the mix which is something we haven’t tried before. It keeps my toddler interested in food.

    I make all kinds of shapes and designs to keep them entertained and happy. I also ask give them options to chose what they’d like and make a big deal about which colour they’d like 🙂 Coupled with variety and giving them what they like, instead of somethin you think they should eat is also another option.

    Sandwich cutters are great for adding some fun to lunches. Changing the fruit variety and baking around every few days also helps. Leftovers from dinner are always great too!

    First I get them involved with the lunch making process by listing a number of (healthy) choices and letting them select their ‘menu’ for the next day or two. Then I use cookie cutters to make cute shapes, pop a funny note in their lunch box as a surprise (ie. “Help, mummy’s been kidnapped and is being held captive at a Tiny Teddies Biscuit factory’) , and have cute stickers on tupperware containers holding their grapes, apple slices or sultanas. Healthy options presented attractively.

    I like to find something new each week for a bit of variety. Uncle Toby’s Puffs look like a yummy lunchbox treat!

    I look for something different – mixing it up is really important.

    Its easy at my house, because my kids seem to like weird combinations, thier favourite sandwiches are, bread and black pizza olives, and tomato sauce and grated cheese. So if I put in a vegemite sandwich, they will tell me after school that it was too mixed up, most people’s usual, is their “I don’t like it” lunch.

    We plant things like cherry tomatoes, alfalfa, and strawberries. I find the kids are more willing to try things that they have grown.
    I also keep a ‘snack box’ that the kids get to choose from.I always make sure there are a variety of store-bought things, and every Sunday I bake a slice or cinnamon scrolls, muffins, etc. The kids help to bake too.
    I also offer wraps instead of plain square bread, or rolls (dinner size are great for my Preppy).
    As the others have mentioned, I too cut things into shapes. Fruit, cheese, and sandwiches can all be cut into shapes. Or fruit kebabs are great too – just skewer your child’s favourite fruits for a winning treat! Even banana’s with faces or messages drawn on to the skin with pen are great. Simple things that get the kids to eat more of a variety of foods that are healthy

    Letting them help make their lunch is wonderful, just have to watch out for sneaky fingers trying to put lollies and chocs in their lunch box.

  15. 07/06/2013 / 9:47 pm

    These sound yummy! The big kid of our house aka. My Husband would love these too 🙂 always wanting something yummy for his lunchbox lol!

    I try to mix it up every now and again!! Not repeat the same boring sandwiches but I like to include the kids in what they eat within reason. Letting them pick what they like and then add a healthy snack. Recipe hunting on the internet always helps!!

  17. 08/06/2013 / 9:33 pm

    Always love to try new products, and so practical. Love Madmummas.

    We like to use a different sandwich cutter each day today’s was a car shape and we add some yummy fresh popped corn and carrots sticks sometimes I even put a little note in their lunch box they love that 🙂

    I make sure I have something different every day so they don’t get bored with the same thing over and over. Different fruits, different sandwich fillings/wraps/rolls etc

    We cook snacks for the lunchbox together – the kids learn about healthy food and preparation, they provide input suggesting what to make and having made it themselves they are eager to eat it!

  23. 09/06/2013 / 12:08 pm

    My teens are terrible about lunches, so I just try to buy as much variety as I can, things I know they will eat.

    Always a struggle in our house because they always say they don’t have time. It needs to be quick, simple and nutritious

    Looks like a great snack for the kiddies on a long drive too

    And we mix it up with different fruit. Sandwiches cut with different cookie cutters, cute containers for dips too go with celery, carrot and zucchini sticks. Sometimes left overs. The Internet is full of inspiration

  27. 12/06/2013 / 3:52 pm

    We use a rotation of “nude” food each week, to keep it fresh and new. Some celery sticks with a mini tub of home made dip, cheese sticks with matching crackers, a tub of yoghurt with some nuts to tip in, mini nachos covered in chopped tomatos and cheese etc. Little versions of these home made favourites, in plastic resuable containers means that my girls look forward to lunch time each day, and the new surprises that their lunchbox will bring.

    I use a mixture of homemade and bought snacks and make sure I don’t pack too much otherwise nothing gets eaten. They get bored quickly so I change lunch boxes and snacks all the time.

    I ask them what they feel like, and make them that. They can’t tire of things they feel like, so keeps them happy.

    School lunches are 4 ‘healthy days’ (mon-thurs)… which consists of healthy lunches and fruit for 1 ‘unhealthy day’ (Fri)… which means they can take or buy whatever they like, but only if they have been good on the first four days! Works a treat! 🙂

    I put snacks in cupcake cases to make it more fun!

    My son is a creature of habit, so the sandwich never changes (on his insistence), however I am constantly changing the snacks….keeping it interesting by trawling blogs and forums for new ideas. Everything is kept easy and unpackaged in little containers….be it homemade or store bought. Supervised lunchtimes (he’s Reception age) ensure I can see what is a hit and what is not – although I will try things several times before giving it a break for a month or so.

    I make sure that there’s two different fruits in her lunchbox each day, as well as two different half-sandwiches. For instance, tomorrow’s lunch is going to be a cheese and olive half-sandwich, and a ham and avocado half-sandwich. She will also have one mandarin and one banana. The next day, she might have a baked bean half-sandwich and an egg and tomato half-sandwich, with some watermelon and pineapple slices. I also include a little container of something else each day – either chickpeas or corn spears or cucumber slices or carrot sticks.

    I have colour days where all the food is the same colour – carrot, mandarin and a juice box is ORANGE Day. She loves GREEN day because she loves the Green cupcakes I make.

    I mix it up by doing a variation during the week of sandwiches, pasta, dip and chips/crackers and fritatas

    I try to cook stuff for my son to take to school, my husband loves it to because he also gets something different to take to work.

  40. Leisa Sandles

    Week in, week out, the food is almost the same, so to change it up and even excite, I cut it different ways, and create animals and funny faces, and call them by different names.

  41. Fi

    I do lots of baking and vary it each week, also I change the fruit around. I have to admit sandwiches aren’t my strength thought!
