Good tasting AND good for you

A few months into school, and you're already bored with your brown bag ideas. It seems there's just so few things to pack and the old pb & j standby just doesn't always cut it. What's a mom to do? 

I recently stumbled upon Health is Wealth frozen foods and have
incorporated them into our rotation.  Earth Fare was having a 20% off all frozen items, so I picked up the Chicken Nuggets and Pizza Munchees - both safe options, I presumed. Let me stop and say that I often make my own chicken nuggets because I am just not crazy about the additives that go into most brands. So what turned me on to the Health is Wealth product was that they are all-natural containing antibiotic-free chicken breast, coated in organic, whole wheat breading that crisps up perfectly. 4 nuggets pack just 130 calories, 13 grams of protein and a mere 4 grams of fat  - numbers that add up nicely in my book. The pizza munchees were vegetarian and also lactose free, which was a huge turn on for me since I can't do dairy. Vine-ripe tomatoes, fat free soy cheese and other a-ok ingredients make up these super snacks that won me over with their ingredient listing and also won my kids over in their tasting. Sure they were healthier than the normal Bagel Bites, but my kids were none the wiser.
