I’m still posting lunches pretty regularly on my Facebook page, but here is a little summary in case you’ve missed them. Also be sure to check out our School Lunch Photo Gallery. It allows you to search by dietary need and types of food. Lots of readers tell me they sit down with their kids to look at these photos so they can point out what they want packed in their own lunches. If you’re curious about the lunch boxes we use, check out our Lunch Box Review post as well as my explanation about how one of my favorite lunch boxes got discontinued.
