Easy Lunch and Snacking with DairyPure Mix-ins® Cottage Cheese
Treat your kiddos to a protein-packed lunch at school with DairyPure Mix-ins Cottage Cheese, now available at Safeway. Creamy cottage cheese with real fruit and nuts, these delicious protein-packed cottage cheese cups are the answer to what’s for lunch or snack. Choose from Strawberries and Almonds or Peaches and Pecans, both are creamy, slightly tangy and have the perfect sweetness to keep kids and adults happy.
We’ve partnered with DairyPure® to bring you some easy lunch and snacking ideas as the school year is just under way.
My oldest child is a non-sandwich lunch eater and has been since kindergarten. She’s now in 8th grade and I’ve had to get creative over the last nine years in coming up with healthy, balanced lunches that she would actually eat. She loves cottage cheese and we snack on it frequently at home, so naturally cottage cheese with fruit and nuts was an option I wanted to try in her lunches.
She really loves to feel like she is snacking while eating lunch, so she starts with a whole wheat cracker and adds a dollop of the cottage cheese mixed with fruit, adds some of the nuts and finishes it off with fresh fruit from her lunch and this is basically her lunch every day.
I always include a veggie like snap peas, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes or sliced bell peppers to round out the nutritional balance of the meal, and I’ve found this is a great snack-like lunch that we can both be happy about.
My younger two kids enjoy the DairyPure Mix-ins after school before we start on homework. It gives them the perfect sustained energy to get through soccer practice and still get their homework done.
