Back to school signifies a busy time in many households, but can also be a welcome return to routine and organized schedules. One such routine is packing school lunches and making sure kids have healthy and nutritious lunches and snacks to see them through the long school day and extracurricular activities.
Barney Butter, the family-owned almond butter brand, has a number of flavorsome, energy-filled, gluten-free, allergy-friendly and 100 percent peanut-free snacks in its product line up that are ideal for back to school. Importantly, Barney Butter is non-GMO verified and doesn’t just use non-GMO ingredients, but ones that are organic and fair trade when possible.
Parents can stock up on over seven different flavors of Barney Butter, including Smooth, Crunchy, Honey + Flax, Raw + Chia, Cocoa + Coconut, as well as Bare Smooth and Bare Crunch that have no added sugar or salt. These are great mainstays to have on hand for sandwiches, including banana sandwiches.
The almond butter “Dip Cups” are designed as grab-and-go snacks. The 1-ounce Dip Cups come in foil-sealed cups, packaged in six-count caddies, and perfect for active families and school lunches. They’re available in five of Barney Butter’s most popular flavors, including salt-and-sugar-free Bare.
Snack packs are another perfect grab-and-go snack. The .6-ounce packs are available in 24 count or 6 count and will easily fit into a lunchbox or even pocket for busy kids on the go.
Parents can also buy 16-ounce bags of Barney Butter’s unsalted Blanched & Roasted Almonds and separate into little bags as a healthy and nutritious snack.
President & CEO of Barney Butter, Dawn Kelley, remarked on how Barney Butter and its range of grab-and-go snacks fit the needs of the brand’s core group of consumers, many of whom are parents: “As busy, working parents ourselves, Steve and I always try to make sure our kids eat healthily and have enough energy to make it through the school day. That’s why our Dip Cups, Snack Packs and Almonds are ideal lunchbox additions, while a selection of Barney Butter flavors are great staples to keep in the home for making lunches or a quick snack after school.”
