#UdisBacktoSchool Lunch Ideas & Giveaway!

We started using Udi's Gluten Free products over three years ago when we had to remove gluten from Little Miss' diet. 

Since then, we've been packing their delicious goods in our work and school lunches and sharing those ideas here on the blog and through social media. 

We want your family to be able to pack great lunches too. That's why Udi's has partnered with us to bring you an amazing back-to-school lunch giveaway

The family of products Udi's offers is constantly growing and we love sharing great ways to incorporate their products to give everyone fresh ideas!

One of my favorite breads Udi's sells is the Omega Flax & Fiber Bread. It's gluten, nut, dairy, and soy free. I love the blend of Omegas, protein, and anti-oxidants in each slice. 

Here we've packed one of my go-to sandwiches: Sunflower seed spread with honey and apple slices. I love the added crunch from the thinly sliced apples inside the sandwich and sweetness of the honey.

Packed along side are oranges, blackberries, cauliflower, zucchini slices, and two (gluten, soy, & nut free) Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites by Udi's. 

Some days, you and your kiddos just don't want "another sandwich". Another reason why we love the Soft Plain Tortillas by Udi's. They're gluten, dairy, nut, and soy free

They make delicious quesadillas or how we've packed them here as a breakfast burrito! Who says you can't have breakfast for lunch?! 

The wrap is filled with scrambled egg, leftover diced bacon, and melted cheese. (Use a cheese substitute to keep it dairy free.)

Packed along side are a couple blackberries, apple slices, carrot coins, and two "Snickerdoodle Sandwiches". The sandwiches are made from two Udi's Snickerdoodle Cookies cut in half. Then filled with sunflower seed spread and banana slices. The cookies are gluten, soy, and nut free.

Tip: Keep your apples and banana slices from browning by soaking them in a juice like pineapple, orange, or lemon. We use apple juice for our apple slices. Let them soak a few minutes then pat dry before packing.

I feel very fortunate that my Little Miss loves spinach. Oddly, she won't eat a iceberg lettuce salad but will gobble up one made from spinach. Silly girl! But I'll take it! 

We often make smoothies for breakfast with spinach blended in, but when we don't I like to pack her a salad or side salad for lunch instead. 

If you or your kiddos like salad too, try topping it with crushed Aged Cheddar Ancient Grain Chips by Udi's. It adds a yummy cheesiness and the crunch of a crouton to the salad. (These chips are gluten free but contain milk and may contain soy.)

Here we've packed orange slices, blackberries, ham flower power roll-ups, and an Udi's Chocolate Chip Granola Bar.

Little Miss can't have the bars since they have almonds and a peanut warning, but they are gluten free and rich with antioxidants! A great option for those also in need of more fiber sources in their diet. They also offer two additional yummy flavors.

Speaking of nutrition sources, yogurt topped with Udi's Granola is a great way to pack a protein punch for lunch! The Au Naturel Granola has a hint of honey, 3g of protein, and is gluten, dairy, soy, and egg free (it has a tree nut warning). 

Pack it for lunch with fresh veggies, fruit like apples & blueberries, and half of an Udi's Whole Grain Bagel filled with cream cheese. It would also be delicious filled with sunflower seed spread or jam too! The bagel itself is gluten, dairy, soy, and nut free
