Making Lunchtime Fun with BEAR

Food & Drink/ Recipe/ sponsored

It can be really hard to make packed lunches interesting and healthy for little ones, it is just so easy to slip into giving them the same things day in and day out because it is easy and you know that they will eat it. I am guilty of doing this and I really don’t think it helps, in fact I’d say it just encourages picky eating! So for this new school year I’ve set myself the task of making things more interesting, more healthy and getting my kids to eat a much more varied diet!


One way we have found of getting the kids to eat 1 of their 5 a day is these fabulous pure fruit Yoyo’s from BEAR. Yoyos are delicious rolls of pure fruit and a little veg which are gently baked. They contain no added sugar or preservatives and are never from concentrates! Just PURE FRUIT!! They come in six fruity-licious recipes… strawberry, apple, blackcurrant, mango, raspberry and pineapple. Yoyos would make a perfect healthy snack for any time of the day. In each Yoyo you can find a time travel card which contain lots of fun facts from the past… so not only healthy but great for their little brains too!

BEAR sent us a lovely lunchbox full of Yoyos to help us with our lunchbox challenge and these are the three lunches that Bugs took to school with him last week…


Lunchbox one contained…

  • Cheese sandwich cut in to space shapes
  • Strawberries
  • Apple Yoyos
  • Cheese Puffs
  • Teddy sponge cake


Lunchbox two contained…

  • Cheese, ham and tomato skewer
  • Cocktail sausages
  • Cucumber and carrot sticks
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberry Yoyos
  • Mini Gingerbread men


Lunchbox three contained…

  • Tuna wrap
  • Crinkly cheese snacks
  • Kiwi
  • Grapes
  • Mango Yoyos
  • Chocolate sandwich biscuit


How gorgeous is his new lunchbox? He was over the moon with it and thankfully it came back empty each day along with a very happy little boy 🙂 Now I’ve just got to keep it going and try to keep him happy and interested in his food. Pinterest has so many amazing ideas so I’m heading over there now to plan the next week or two.

    Oh I love these ideas! I always but cookie cutters when I see them on offer as it makes it nice and easy to make fancy sandwiches for lunch that way – we even have a bear one!!
