“When building a lunch or snack for parents and kids alike, be sure to include a balance of delicious foods,” said Catherine McCord, author of Weelicious Lunches and Weelicious.com, and Mini Babybel® Brand Advocate. “For a satisfying lunch that will keep you fuller, longer, I like to start off with protein, like hardboiled eggs or a Mini Babybel® cheese. Then, add something sweet and fresh, like a juicy peach.”

Pair a kid and parent-pleasing choice, such as Mini Babybel®, a 100 percent natural cheese with a rich and creamy taste, with fruits or vegetables for a back-to-school snack that’s nutrient-rich and sure to satisfy.
