Hello Friends! School is back in session and it’s time again to start thinking about what to pack your kids for lunch. Between fighting to get them out of bed and getting them dressed, packing a healthy lunch is probably the last thing on your mind. Not to mention the other battle of getting your kids to actually eat the lunch you packed- not see it end up in the playground trashcan.
