Instead of giving your kids the same boring sandwich, jazz up their lunchbox and snacks with a few easy tips:

Update a Classic
Honey gives a new twist to an old favorite. Try a PB&H by switching out the jelly for honey, and this sandwich will be a new lunchbox staple.

Wrap, roll and skewer
Wrap fixings in a tortilla for a handy “to go” snack. Cut sandwiches into small, flattened, crustless squares; spread bread with honey and chopped fruit, and roll into kid-friendly sushi rolls or fashion them into kebabs.

Prepare for the snack attack
Make a double batch of snacks and keep them on-hand when hungry bellies come calling. Honey-sweetened granola bars stay fresh in tightly sealed containers and banana pops store perfectly in the freezer. Honey is also a natural preservative that will keep your snacks extra-fresh.

Customize to fit cravings
Snack time is more fun with your favorite and colorful toppings. Roll a banana pop in graham cracker crumbs, dried fruit or coconut for a fun, individualized sweet treat.

Reach for a quick dip
Eating fruit is twice as fun with a naturally-sweetened dip! Keep individual serving-sized packages of honey fruit dip in the refrigerator where it’s ready to grab and go.

Add energy and brain-power to your kid’s school day with good-for-you snacks made with pure honey. Honey is a great all-natural sweetener with no added ingredients. Read the label to make sure you purchase 100 percent, pure honey.
