We continue to discuss recycling, conservation, and being good citizens of the earth. 
How about packing foods in reusable containers? 
We realize that these suggestions take extra time, but for the health of your child, it is well worth it.
Lunch does not have to be a chore.  View it as a way to spend quality time with your child. 
Involve your child with selecting and preparing the foods as well as cleaning the lunch box for the next day.
