Happy National Pack Your Lunch Day! That’s right: this Thursday, March 10, people across the U.S. will celebrate the act of bringing their own lunches to schools and workplaces. Here at Tickle Water , we think it’s a great reminder about healthy eating and drinking. Kids need more water, and packing a lunch can be a great way to make that happen.
For adults, it’s so easy to grab a less-than-healthy lunch on the run, and for kids, the choices can be just as bad—or worse. As I pointed out last week, food companies put a lot of effort (and money) into making unhealthy drinks seem healthy. So, when we pack our kids’ lunches, many of us probably pay attention to the food. We try to include fruits, vegetables or other healthy options. But when it comes to the drink choices, beverage companies have made it tempting to throw in a juice box, soda, or other sugary drink. Having those types of drinks every day can lead to bad health consequences, like obesity and even diabetes. Many of those drinks can add an extra 100+ calories and over 20 grams of sugar in one serving. That is as much sugar as a cookie – in your child’s beverage!
Kids have such long and busy days at schools, so it’s important that they stay hydrated. If it includes water, a packed lunch can be a great way to make sure your kids are drinking enough water. When it comes to finding healthy drinks for kids, nothing beats water!
Any kind of water is better than soda, whether it’s from the school water fountain or something bottled. However, when other kids are drinking sugary drinks in colorful packaging, the water fountain might seem a little boring. As an alternative, Tickle Water is a fun drink for kids. Kids feel cool drinking it – and they should! We spent a lot of time creating a package that kids want to hold and want to drink.
Remember when you were a kid and traded food or drinks with your friends in the lunchroom? You would scope out on another’s lunch boxes to see whose parents packed them the best treats and coolest foods. With Tickle Water, your kid’s lunch box will be the curiosity and the envy of the other kids! But it doesn’t have to be.
From everyone here at Tickle Water , have a Happy National Pack Your Lunch Day!
Show us what’s in your lunch box today.
