"Can you make a lunch for me to take?" Is that a heart warming start for the day, or what?

I truly treasure the time I spend doing something special for family members even when things have to be done quickly or with short notice. Then is when I choose something that is both easy and quick. Then is when I am happy to have Welch's Graham Slam! Grape PB&J in my freezer!

Lunch & After School Snack Made Easy with Welch's Graham Slam! Grape PB&J Grape

We are all long time fans of the classic Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich, but never has that great taste combination been so convenient. These are that great taste combination between crispy graham crackers making a filing snack for any time of day. I always get a smile and a "Thanks, Mom." when I include a Welch's Graham Slam! PB&J bar in Nikolai's school lunch. After school snacks are also a perfect time for these which can be enjoyed frozen or thawed. Below I will show examples of how I include them in both school lunches and after school snacks.

Step By Step Tutorial for kebabs with Welch's Grand Slam! Grape PB&J

In this bento lunch:
  1. Begin with some string cheese (chunks of cheese also works) and some slices of nitrate free lunch meat. Since I'm going to make kebabs, I used a couple of skewers. You can also use any other food picks or toothpicks if you prefer.
  2. Cut the cheese into bite size pieces and slice the meat to approximately the same width.
  3. Roll up the meat and alternate with the cheese to assemble the kebab.
  4. The assembled kebabs. Feel free to substitute or add your favorite food combinations.
  5. Time to add the fruits, vegetables, and the Welch's Graham Slam! Grape PB&J bar.
  6. Ready for the lid, the lunch bag, and the ride to school.
In addition to having these in the freezer, I'll also share some quick and easy lunch packing tips.

1) I try to Pre-pack lunches the night before. The next morning, I'll just have to cut fruits or cheese and assemble them into the bento box.
2) Use leftovers from dinner. Sometimes I pack them directly into the bento box and sometimes into a microwavable bowl so I could heat it up the next morning, allow the food to cool down and transfer into the lunch box.
3) Use freezer stash items like frozen homemade muffins, meatballs,dumplings and more.

You might also like to remember this; if you include your Welch's Graham Slam! PB&J bar straight from the freezer, as I like to do, other items in your lunch box, such as the fruits and vegetables, will remain cool until lunch time. It's like having an extra ice pack that tastes oh so yummy! The Welch's Graham Slam! Grape PB&J will also be thawed by lunch time and you will find the crackers surprisingly crispy.

Welch's Graham Slam! PB&J In Lunchbox

Welch's Graham Slam! Grape PB&J is a very versatile and very convenient addition that makes a lunch really grape, I mean great! Just unwrap and enjoy!

I like that they are great snacks for after school as well, which are filling and satisfying and with no high fructose corn syrup. Before I leave to pick up my son from school, I take the Welch's Graham Slam! from the freezer to thaw. They are ready to eat when we arrive home. Some, like my hubby when he returns from some cycling, like to enjoy them frozen. Either way, the taste is fantastic.

The photo below shows a typical after school snack.

  3. Nikolai reaching for the bar.

In addition to enjoying them at home or for after school snacks, they are perfect for when our schedule is busy and we are on the go to after school activities. Going beyond that, they are wonderful for road trips and family vacations as well. Visiting a theme  park? Be sure to pack some with you. When you leave your hotel for your activities they’ll defrost while your family is having fun. Later your kids will have a delicious mid-morning snack or lunch ready for them!
