My boys go back to school in 10 short days. This will be the first school year we will have two kids needing lunch at school. Most years we are really good at packing lunch for the first half of the year but once January comes we really slack. REALLY badly!
We just seem to get lazier as the school year progresses. Or maybe winter break just gets us really off our game. We can't do that this year though with two of them in school. While school lunches are only a few bucks, a few bucks every day really adds up!
We much prefer to pack school lunches for them that way we save money and know exactly what they are eating. Our youngest is really picky anyway so he'd probably never eat if we didn't pack him food. I'm loving these Shamrock Farms on-the-go mmmmilk for school lunches. Even my picky eater has never snubbed his nose at milk.
Shamrock Farms mmmmilk comes in 12 oz on-the-go plastic, recyclable containers in yummy chocolate, strawberry, and regular milk flavors. Best part is now they are available at select Walmart stores nationwide for —wait for it— only $1!
No one can argue that pure, fresh, nutritious (no added hormones) Shamrock Farms mmmmilk is not better for your kids than some fruity drink. Each variety of Shamrock Farms mmmmilk provides over 25% of the daily recommended protein while those other drinks we are all guilty of packing in school lunches provide none. I want to give my kids healthy yet fun school lunch options and Shamrock Farms mmmmilk helps me accomplish that – and MORE!
Shamrock Farms aims to inspire busy moms and dads even more by creating Roxie’s Midday Menu – the recipes are protein-packed, simple to make and pair perfectly with the milk varieties.

Do you get the recommended daily amount of protein?
Packing lunch everyday is really a big deal.
I also have a school going girl and I try that lunch give her energy.
adding shamrock milk in kid’s lunch is good idea.
I am thinking we can also carry such packs of milk for us during office hours.
That’s a great idea! My husband’s work offers soda in their fridge. Milk would be a much better option!
