Blog Theme - Back To School/Lunchboxes

ECOlunchpod by This week’s blog theme is Back To School and Lunch Boxes. How do you, or your kids, pack for school lunch? A friend, and fellow second grade mom told me the other day that when her kids were in public school in California they did not allow disposable lunchbox packaging materials. Everything was packed in reuseable containers/wraps! What a GREAT model~ This week we delve into all sorts of facets of lunchboxes. Packaging, healthy recipes, the actual lunchbox, focused on alternatives to readily available status quo of Lunchables, soda, and a whole pile of single-use plastic wraps!
