Make a Kid-Friendly Lunch


Be eco-friendly, and give your child a cool way to carry her lunch at the same time, with fun, reusable lunch containers. Just be sure the containers are easy for little hands to open. Pack your child's lunches with all her favorite nutritious foods to keep her energized all day and ready to learn. You can even pack a little note of encouragement along with her food, so she knows you are thinking about her on her big day.

Also, be conscious of any foods that are not allowed in your child's classroom, due to food allergies. Most schools will make you aware of any policies they may have in place.
