Save-A-Lot Month of Lunches Gift Card Give Away

Need some help busting lunch time boredom? Need some new ideas that won't break your budget?

Save-A-Lot has put together a Month of Lunches menu, available via PDF and online, to help parents answer the question, “What’s for lunch?” Best of all, the average cost of the lunches is less than $1.00 per day – that’s $1.30 less per day than the cost of the average school lunch (according to the School Nutrition Association). Over the course of 180 school days, that’s a savings of $234!

While you're checking out the month of lunches menu, be sure to check out the other great material on Save-A-Lot site including:
  • 10 Tips for Beating Lunch Box Boredom
  • Shopping List (generic, non-branded items)
  • Arts & Crafts activity - materials to encouraging kids to select which lunches they want ahead of time. Kids can cut and paste their selections onto a blank calendar, color and decorate and work with mom to put up in a communal area so that kids feel empowered to make their own lunch time choices.

Want to head over and choose some NEW lunch items at Save-A-Lot on their dollar?
One lucky reader will win a $25 gift card thanks to Save-A-Lot!

Here's what you need to do to enter:
1. Visit the Save-A-Lot Month of Lunches site HERE 2. Come back here and leave a comment telling me your favorite lunch from the menu.

This give away will end Friday, September 4th at midnight EST. I will announce the winner via here on Saturday, September 5th.

I think the Cheese Quesidilla on a Tortilla with the fruit and juice. I make these for my son for a snack all the time. 30 seconds in a microwave and it's so easy!

I guess I'll go with soup in a thermos, only because I HATED when my mom gave me soup in a thermos for lunch. :-)

Really, my fave is the chef salad.

Chef's salad!!!

Janice said...

A simple cheese sandwich, water and carrot sticks. Sticking to the basics. :)

Lynn said...

I would have to say the Chef Salad, I would like to send that with my son.
I would also add some sunflower seeds (extra protein and fiber) and some madarin orange segments (to sneak in some more fruit :)
Then for the dressing, I would either do ranch or a poppyseed dressing. Kids love the sweet taste and it goes so well with the oranges. Try it sometime.
I might also send in a leftover crescent roll from dinner the night before. Mine kiddo is growing so fast right now, he needs a pretty good size lunch. That is, if he can quit socializing long enough to eat it...he must get that from me :)
Nice contest, thanks for the opportunity.

Jana said...

I think the mini raviolis in a thermos is a great idea ~ I never thought about sending something besides soup in a thermos!
Great contest! Thanks for the offer!
