#NoTradesies School Lunch Ideas with Snack Packs

On New Year’s Eve, I made some fun chocolate cookie pudding pops using my new popsicle maker. The recipe called for pudding so I used two Snack Packs, vanilla flavour. Our dessert pops turned out so delicious!


The popsicles were super easy to make, however, the most convenient thing about Snack Packs is that they make a yummy and fun addition to a child’s lunch bag for school.

Making lunches fun is something that I love to do! I love to use cookie cutters and sandwich cutters to create fun shapes. I love to get creative with notes in my kids’ lunches as well as fun forks, spoons and more. Snack Pack Canada helped me create super fun lunches for my kids with their No Tradesies Pack!

Kids love to receive treats in their lunches. My kids love to receive Snack Pack puddings in their lunches. It’s amazing the excitement they show when they come home telling me how much they loved their “surprise” in their lunch!

Snack Pack Canada has some wonderful tips for helping parents (and kids) to make lunches that won’t be traded or sent home uneaten.

  • Can’t get your kids to eat their fruit? Adding a Snack Pack to the mix turns fruit into a tasty, dip-able adventure. Try the Caramel Apple, all it takes is some apple slices and a Toffee Caramel pudding
  • Sandwich Shape-up: Even a favourite sandwich can seem boring and routine when it shows up in the lunch box day after day. Keep things interesting and kids engaged by breaking out the cookie cutters and cutting the sandwiches into fun shapes.
  • Kebab it up: skewering some bite-sized veggies on a kebab with a side of veggie dip is a different and fun way to make sure veggies are not coming home at the end of the day.
  • Utensils are key: let your kids pick out their utensils, napkins and lunch boxes. They definitely won’t be reaching for the aluminum, and giving them a say means they will take pride in their lunch pack. Have bright, colourful spoons on hand so kids can choose whether it’s a yellow, blue or orange kind of day!
