Looking for quick and easy ideas to make lunchboxes more interesting?
Your local Go Vita store has everything you need.
VGood PeaNOT Spreads
The VGood Hazelnut Choc Spread contains over 60 percent less sugar than alternative hazelnut-chocolate spreads, is made with 45 percent roasted chickpeas combined with the highest quality cacao from Holland, and contains no added sweeteners.
VGood PeaNOT Chickpea Butter
It is a lunchbox-safe alternative to conventional peanut butter, providing a real ‘peanutty’ flavour and texture while being completely free from peanuts and tree nuts. Choose from either Crunchy or Smooth.
All three spreads are delicious and nutritious, offering a plant-based source of protein, fibre and iron with no artificial preservatives, colours or flavours. They are also a fantastic pantry staple for adding flavour and texture to baked goods, smoothies, protein balls, sauces and casseroles.
The clever folks at VGood also make super-tasty and moreish snacks that actually do deliver health benefits as well as provide a delicious taste and texture that is loved by adults and children alike. VGood Tomato and Basil Twists and VGood Sea Salt Twists are crispy, crunchy moreish twisted snack bites, made with over 90 percent chickpeas. These allergen-friendly twists offer a clean ingredients list with all-natural seasonings, plus they are packed with plant-based protein and fibre, and only have 63 calories per serving.
Protein Bread and Cake
We have yet to meet a child who doesn’t like banana bread or carrot cake! These two always go down a treat with kids big and little, thanks to their naturally sweet flavour and soft, moist texture. The Protein Bread Company has a gluten-free Low Carb Carrot Cake Mix and Low Carb Banana Bread Mix that make whipping up both of these family favourites easier than ever. The Carrot Cake Mix is sweet with warm hints of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and vanilla, while the Banana Bread Mix makes the perfect lunchbox snack. Each Mix makes one loaf – that’s 12 quick and healthy breakfasts or lunchbox additions, all ready for kids on the go.
Sprout Mini Muffins
Just the thing for little hands, bite-sized Sprout Mini Muffins are an individually-packed cute and tasty treat that will satisfy a sweet tooth without compromising health. Dairy-, soy- and gluten-free, they are made with organic and natural ingredients, including organic chickpeas, making them the perfect lunchbox snack.
FUNCH Bliss Balls
FUNCH Salted Caramel or Vanilla and Coconut Protein Ball Mix and FUNCH Choccy Chia Snack Ball Mix are time-saving must-haves for any busy parent. Gluten-free and vegan- friendly, they provide a handy boost of protein, fibre and sustained energy, with no added sugar or artificial ingredients. And they could not be quicker or easier to make – no blender, food processor or baking is involved, just add pitted dates and a bit of water and coconut oil to the pre-mixed blend, roll into balls and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
At Go Vita, we are also big fans of FUNCH Strawberry Cheezecake Bliss Slice Mix, a delicious and zingy-tasting blend of freeze-dried strawberries, creamy melt-in-your-mouth cashews and a crunchy buckwheat and coconut topping. Once made, all these healthy goodies will last for up to two weeks in the fridge, or you can make a big batch and freeze them all – what a lifesaver to just be able to grab a handful on a busy school morning and know that they will be the perfect healthy treat for morning tea or lunch.
