Healthy Lunches -TBK Needs Your Help!!!!

Hi everyone!

Now that  school has started, you may be REALLY frustrated that your kids may not be eating what you packed for lunch. It may be time for some fresh ideas.

Here is an article about school lunches that I wrote for CBS  and here is one with Karen Diaz of the Montclair Times with many suggestions to make the job less hellish for you.

Here are some questions to ponder:

Who makes your kids’ lunches  and is this working for you?

Email them to me, preferably with a photo, to

Thank you!
