I am always on the lookout for good foods to give my kids. One of the prepackaged meals that I have found on the market are the GoPicnic meals. For me, they work great for cold lunch or car rides! However, they were originally designed as airplane food, so you can definitely see Julia’s (the inventor) inspiration. Prior to starting GoPicnic, Julia was responsible for conceiving, developing and launching United’s shelf-stable buy-on-board meal program and first class snackbox program, featured today on airlines worldwide. You can thank Julia for edible plane food! 🙂
This year at the Housewares show I attended, they showed nine new flavorful meals that run the gamete from gluten-free to vegan. All meals are well-balanced and under 500 calories. The products include:
Peanut Butter + Crackers
Salmon + Crackers (Gluten-Free)
Hummus + Crackers (Gluten-Free, Vegan and Kosher)
Sunbutter + Crackers (Gluten-Free and Vegan)
Salami + Crackers
Turkey Pepperoni + Cheese (Gluten-Free)
Turkey Stick + Crunch (Gluten-Free)
Another great thing about GoPicnic products is that they contain no trans fats, high fructose corn syrup or added MSG, and no artificial colors or flavors. We got to try the hummus and crackers meal and the turkey stick + crunch meal. As a person trying to lose weight, I love that these are a meal that is low in calories. If I need to, I can eat this on the go and not feel guilty. Of the two meals, my kids like the Turkey Stick + Crunch Meal the best (however, I do know that the Turkey Pepperoni and Cheese would have went over very well with them!). I love how everything is prepackaged for you, so if you don’t eat it all, you don’t have to worry about it going to waste (which is why I bring these on car trips!). There is so much variety with their meals that you can definitely find one that you are going to like.
If you haven’t tried GoPicinic yet, what are you waiting for?
