How To Easily Get a Teenager to Pack a Healthier School Lunch...

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Del Monte, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DelMonteBTS

Today my oldest baby starts his first full week as a high school sophomore.
Today my oldest baby also turns sixteen.
Sixteen, folks!
Seriously all, where has the time gone??

One day he is my little buddy who spends hours putting together his latest Lego set (and he is shorter than me!), and the next day he is my young man who is into cars and sports (and also very much taller than me now ;) ).
Did I also mention that he is also old enough to now obtain a driver's license?? Faint.
While I am excited for all the new adventures he is embarking on as he grows into such a wonderful young man, I also get a little teary-eyed when I think that we literally just have three years of high school left until he is college bound.

Sometimes one of the hardest things to accept about having a child headed towards adulthood is that you cannot be there for every decision that they need to make, every choice that they are faced with.  You can pray that you have instilled enough of your wisdom and values in them that they will just get what they need to do when the time comes.  
Fingers crossed!

While I cannot foresee all the challenges and adventures that will come his way each day of this new school year, I can rest assured that he is getting the nutrition and energy he needs to face them each day with a little help from some of the tasty Del Monte products I picked up at my local Walmart Super Store- like their Fruit Burst Squeezers and Fruit Cups...

The oldest packs his own lunches now, and I love how easy and convenient both the Del Monte Fruit Cups and the Fruit Burst Squeezers are to just toss in his lunch bag each morning. :)

And the Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers are perfect for tossing in his bag for cross country practice. With their 1 1/2 servings of fruits & veggies, they are the perfect pre-practice fuel for him...
