My family asks for those dang packaged cheese and cracker lunches every time we go to the store! I don’t blame them, I remember doing the same thing when I was in school! I just can’t bring myself to do it for both price and quality of ingredients, but I always tell them the same thing: I can make one even better than that!
So I whip out my 1.5 inch circle form and cut all our deli meats and cheeses down to size and there is no beating a RITZ Cracker, so those come, too! I’ve noticed that my family will try new meats and cheeses in this form so I’ve been sticking some more adventurous flavors in their lunches too! I’ll also pack a sweet combination for their “dessert” and they’re feeling like the coolest kid in the cafeteria. You can find ALL of these ingredients at your nearest Kroger store (find your local stop here!), plus you can save on RITZ Crackers right now.
We’ve tried Salami, Pepperoni, Turkey, Prosciutto and Ham. Topped with Manchego, Muenster, Parmesan, Bleu Cheese, White and Sharp Cheddar. Of course they don’t always LIKE the new meats or cheeses but they will always try, simply because it’s in that stacked bite form. Mom hack alert!
And because who doesn’t like a little salty + sweet combo I like slicing up fruit with peanut butter or hazelnut spread for a sweet end of meal treat, too!
Any good mom hacks for getting your family to try new foods? I’ve heard of having them roll dice to see how many bites they get to take, having a chart for new foods tried for a prize, doing a blind taste test and making a video to watch later, can’t wait to hear your ideas!
