I'm back from vacation, and I'm finally getting back in the saddle.
But I know many of you are still enjoying your summer and enjoying your summer off...from making school lunches. But that's why this is a perfect time to start thinking about how you can use school lunches to teach your kids healthy eating habits.
That might seem impossible when you're dealing with what comes out of the school cafeteria. Or your child's demands to eat the same sandwich day-after-day.
But these are the problems I am going to discuss, starting next week. In the meantime, here are some old posts on school lunches to get you started.
