Applegate Half Time Review and Giveaway

September 13, 2014

This post has been sponsored. Free product was received in exchange for my honest review.

With back to school season here, one of the top things that your child needs aside from school supplies, is a well-balanced lunch each day. It’s sometimes hard to find the time to pack a healthy lunch everyday for your child, which is why I love Applegate’s new HALF TIME meals! All you have to do is pull one of these delicious pre-packaged lunch kits from the fridge to pack along with your child and you can be confident they are getting the nutrition they need.
