Back to School Lunches-2

Kids Healthy LunchesHealthy Eating at School= Healthy Kids

Back to School means the routine of preparing lunches for the next day…every parents nightmare.   Add on top of that the desire to have healthy lunch options for your children and this routine can create a lot of stress for most families.  Well have no fear…this App from Today’s Parent called “Go Bento” is sure put every parents mind at ease.

What are Bento boxes? A bento box is a home packed meal in Japanese cuisine and Bento has the literal translation of “convenient”. Therefore, this simple idea has led to a new trend in school lunches.  The premise is to divide lunches into small portion sizes with healthy nutritious food.  The iPad compatible app lets your child create their own bento box  by selecting different healthy food options from 5 different categories:

This app lets you be creative and support more engagement with your children about healthy food choices.   Now all you have to do is hit up the grocery store or local farmer’s market!
