What Other Moms Are Packing for Lunch


Although we recently published a list of ideas and recipes for back-to-school lunches, it’€™s nice to know what other moms are packing for their kids, too. Which is why we took to Facebook to ask the question, ‘€œWhat is your go-to lunch to pack for school?’€ Thankfully we received some really great answers that included tips for hiding brown spots on apples, unique dessert ideas and character sandwiches that transform the midday meal into something out of this world.
