Review: Sargento FridgePack String Cheese . . . a New Staple Food at Our House

Our first grader has three snacks a day . . . one during class mid-morning, one with his school lunch (unless he buys that day), and one when he gets home from school.  It has become more and more difficult to offer him variety and still give him relatively healthy snacks 3 times per day 5 days a week.  One of his classmates has a peanut allergy, so anything with peanut butter is out.  My son use to love Smartfood cheese popcorn, but now he has grown tired of it from having it so often.  My other usual go-to snacks are granola bars and cheese with crackers.

I recently added another food to my go-to snack list . . . Sargento String Cheese.  All three of my children and my husband unanimously agree that it is their favorite out of all the Sargento FridgePacks we tried.  My husband puts them in his lunch cooler and I can pack them with an ice pack in my son's lunch bag.  I'm so happy to have another healthy snack option to help me steer clear from serving chips and cookies so often.

These new cheese FridgePacks from Sargento fit perfectly on the bottom shelf of our refrigerator.  I usually keep juice boxes and small bottles of spring water in the bottom right drawer so that the children can help themselves.  These FridgePacks helped to grow my little kid-friendly section of the refrigerator.  Anything that will promote our three children become more independent is a plus in my book.

Sargento FridgePack cheeses currently come in four varieties . . . String Cheese, Light String Cheese, Mild Cheddar, and Colby-Jack.  Each one comes with 18 individually wrapped units of cheese.  They retail for approximately $6.99 each and you should be able to find them at your local grocery store or most places where Sargento products are sold.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Sargento and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
