New Foods and Products for a Healthy School Lunch Box

Naturipe Washed and Ready to Eat Blueberry Packs

Sponsored post

Most of you are at least one week—four for us!—into the new school year. With all of the excitement comes even more fun for some, and for the rest–the dread of packing school lunch. My husband says he doesn’t mind packing lunches. Sometimes I enjoy packing Scarlet’s lunch. And sometimes I wish she would eat the hot school lunch offered. Every year I search high and low for the newest (and nutritious) lunch products that help make life easier, while serving up a lunch that kids will actually want to eat!

Sunkist Lemon-Spiced Tilapia Tacos, by culinary spokesperson Michelle Dudash

Hi all! I can’t believe how long it has been since my last blog post. My apologies. I’ve been so busy creating recipes for clients and enjoying my summer that I forgot to share my latest and greatest with you. And today I brought my daughter to her first day of kindergarten–a bittersweet day in many ways. It is exciting for her and our family that she is growing up, yet sad that school starting means that summer has ended. Well, at least for me anyway. If you are wondering about my other summer adventures and musings, I invite you … More...

I admit that I’ve eaten cake for breakfast (like an appetizer before my first meal) on the day after my birthday. Come to find out, I’m not alone.
