Take The Power Your Lunchbox Pledge
Whether your kids started some already, or maybe you still have a few weeks – it’s no denying that it’s back To School time. In the midst of all the school supplies and new clothes or shoes, you can’t forget about lunches. Yes, it’s time to give your kids the fuel that they need to make it through the day! I look for options that are healthy, nutritious, but are also FUN – my kids still like FUN lunches 🙂
What are some of your favorite options for lunches? Well, I am hoping that you guys will join me in taking the Power Your Lunchbox Pledge.
What is it? Well, the new Power Your Lunchbox Pledge by Produce for Kids®, is running through September 15, and encourages us parents to pack healthier lunchboxes for our kids this back-to-school season. And by taking the pledge, you also make a donation to DonorsChoose.org!
