Feeding our kids healthy school lunches is important to us. There are so many options and choices for snacks and foods. It is important that we teach our kids how important it is to vary what they eat. This means more than just a variety of their favorite treats or foods.
The most important part of eating for them is to learn about other diet. It’s easy to overlook the wide variety of foods with all the fancy packaging out there. Also the vast sizes of stores these days offer a lot. Even more overwhelming is getting raw ingredients and putting them together for a wholesome and healthy meal or snack. To me what is important is trying new foods from foreign diets. We try to incorporate these ideas into healthy school lunches as a way to provide diversity and a mixed diet.
While having a variety of ingredients is important it is even more important to make it easy to eat, especially for children. With Mediterra Nutrition Bars we can pack more flavorful nutrition than a typical packaged nutrition bar. Creating healthy school lunches can still be easy and tasty.

We do a lot of trips around Southern California and around the Southwest. It’s important to get the kids out to learn and experience what this big world has to offer. This includes sciences, history, but also culture and foods. Having lived in Israel along the Mediterranean for several years of my childhood, I was lucky to experience many cultures and foods. I also met a lot of friends from the region and from other countries and shared in their healthy school lunches. Living in Southern California we have so much diversity in food to find.
Mediterra does a great job in combining ingredients to put it all together for tasty nutrition bars. Their newest Savory flavors include Kale/Pumpkin Seed with 1 gram of sugar and 2 grams of sugar in their Bell Pepper/Green Olive nutritional savory bar. Mediterra also offers “Yogurt and Oat Bars” in Yogurt/Oat/Cherry Pistachio and Yogurt/Oat/Apricot Pistachio flavors and Sesame and Honey combinations.
Mediterra is available in 10,000 stores including now 7-Eleven which is great for quick stops on the road or to create tasty healthy school lunches and snacks. I have a half marathon coming up and these are great for my on-the-go fuel needed toi keep me going early in the morning.
