    I work at a preschool, and my son attends as well. I finally gave up on the catered lunch when he was served a white bread meatball sandwich and canned fruit cocktail- I packed his first (mostly) real food lunch today! I’m certainly going to be coming here for ideas…

  • I may not have kids’ lunches to pack, but I sure do love getting ideas for good stuff to pack into my own lunches. Thanks for sharing!

  • These look so good! I post my girls #realfood lunches on Instagram!

    Thanks for such an informative post!! A question: how do you keep apple slices from turning brown?

    My son just started daycare this week. I found so much great lunch inspiration here. The daycare Director even said today “wow, your sons lunch looked so yummy today”. We are slowly changing our eating habits for the better. Thank you for helping our family get healthier with whole foods.
