Ahoy maties! It is lunch time, what are your kids eating? Is it something delicious and nutritious? Could there possibly be some treasure inside? My kids love treasure in their lunch box and it comes in the form of Pirate’s Booty! We received some delicious Pirate’s Booty Snack Packs packed inside a fun treasure box, plus tattoos and cool eye patches for review. Plus two lucky readers will win their own “Booty” consisting of two Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar half-ounce 12-packs (that’s a total of 24 half-ounce bags – enough for a month’s worth of school lunches!) and some fun pirate swag.
Pirate’s Booty is a delicious baked snack all 3 of my children enjoy. They have been big fans of Pirate’s Booty for years. They love that it tastes great and I love that I can feel good about what I am packing in their lunchbox or offering them for an afternoon snack. Pirate’s Booty is also gluten, peanut and tree-nut free, so it’s safe for kids with these common food allergies and their classmates too making it great for class parties. Pirate’s Booty is made without trans-fats and ingredients you can’t pronounce which I love. Best of all it tastes great too.
Pirate’s Booty also makes a great substitute for the old standby Halloween candy. This year, it will be easier than ever to pass out Pirate’s Booty, as Target and Super Target stores across the country will be offering special Halloween 24-packs of half-ounce 65-calorie bags of Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar. The Halloween 24-packs of Pirate’s Booty will be available from mid-September through October. The suggested retail price is $7.99.
• Sandwich Substitute: Whole grain bread, wraps or bagels packed with lean cuts of meat or hummus for protein is the way to go. Whole grain breads are packed with fiber and protein that keep away afternoon hunger pangs! Don’t forget the mustard, which is loaded with antioxidants. Tomatoes, lettuce and cucumbers are delicious ways to add crunch, fiber, plus vitamins and minerals.
• Snack Switch: This may be the most important part of the meal because it’s a kid’s favorite. Stay away from greasy, fried potato chips and artificially flavored cheese curls. Baked, all-natural snacks with less fat and calories are a much better alternative. You shouldn’t need Google to read the ingredient list!
• Drink Exchange: Avoid sugary fruit drinks loaded with calories and little to no nutritional benefit. Rehydrating with water or low-fat milk makes the grade! Low-fat milk is delicious and nutrient-rich; containing calcium and vitamin D which are essential for growing bones.
• Sweet Tooth Swap: Instead of something high in fat and sugar like cookies or snack cakes, try naturally sweet low-fat yogurt with fresh fruit. Yogurt is rich in protein, calcium and B vitamins.
Don’t be a Scurvy Dog and go out and get yourself some Pirate’s Booty. With 5 flavors to choose from there is definitely a flavor for everyone to love.
Right now 2 lucky readers will win a Pirate’s Booty Snack Pack plus Pirate Swag.
