These fun lunchbox notes are the perfect way to remind your kiddos you love them—especially when served atop a sweet, wholesome snack!

My little guys are busy, busy alllll the time. If you have kids at home, I'm sure you can relate.
It seems our family is almost always on the go—between work, school, extracurriculars and homework, there is always something going on!
As the boys have gotten older and our activities have increased, I have been focusing on finding ways to streamline our "have to's" so that I don't lose my sanity and can be as effective as possible.
Because let me tell you, mama needs all the help she can get!
Naturally, I love when my quest for ease collides with high-quality products I can feel good about serving my family.
That's just one of the reason why I love Del Monte® Fruit Cup® snacks so much!
The individual cups of wholesome fruit are so convenient and easy for the kids to enjoy in their lunches or as an after-school snack. They're even better, now, since they’re now in 100% juice with 25% less sugar than the national leading brand*.
You'll find them in the fruit snack aisle when you're grocery shopping. And you can save $1 on any two packs of Del Monte Fruit Cup snacks with their special coupon.
I have a little stockpile of the Del Monte® Fruit Cup® snacks in our cupboard. When the boys are hungry for a snack, they know that's the first place to check. They love being independent, choosing the flavor they want, and I love that they're eating something good for them!
I always have three flavors stocked in my pantry: Diced Peaches, Mandarin Oranges and Cherry Mixed Fruit.
To be honest, sometimes Ryan and I sneak a cup for ourselves as well. They're too tasty to turn down!
I also regularly tuck the Del Monte Fruit Cup snacks into their lunches. It's a delicious and nutritious option they're always happy to find inside their lunchbox.
When I was a little girl, I can remember the thrill of opening my lunchbox and finding goodies inside that I was excited to eat.
My mom always tucked a note inside as well -- I looked forward to that just as much as my food! It was always great to have that bit of encouragement and love from my biggest cheerleader partway through my day.
Lunchbox notes are a tradition I've continued on with my boys. Recently, I created these fun little printable lunchbox notes as well. I designed them to print on sticker sheets, making them so simple to peel and stick on top of the Del Monte Fruit Cup snacks.
They're the perfect way to encourage my boys as they go through their days!
I just print out a sheet and then leave them in the kitchen. When I'm ready to pack lunches, I can pop them on the tops of the Del Monte Fruit Cup snacks before putting them in the boys' lunches. Easy peasy!
I hope your family enjoys these little printables as much as we do and, of course, Del Monte Fruit Cup snacks as well. They're delicious!
