What parent who packs school lunch for his child couldn’t use a little help?
Indeed, for many a mom and dad, making school lunch is the bane of their back-to-school existence. The thought of getting the offspring out the door on time with a healthy and affordable lunch in tow — that doesn’t just come back home — is enough to send even the most together adult into a tizzy.
It need not be so. In two posts for the site Great Schools this week, I offer up some solutions to the lunch box blues.
The first piece provides seven strategies for school lunch success. J.M. Hirsch, food editor for The Associated Press, who blogs about making lunch for his son at Lunch Box Blues, walks parents through simple steps that can take the stress out of making school lunch.
In the second story, School Lunches From Around the World, find global inspiration and recipe links to help spice up what winds up in your child’s lunch.
