Back to School Final Part: Pack a Lunch!

Back to School

Lucky Blog concludes the “Healthy Back to School” series with two suggestions to all students: eat healthy and save the planet.

Child obesity is a growing problem in the United States and school meals should be considered one of the main reasons kids are overweight. Fast food has become a major problem for parents because kids tend to enjoy burgers, french fries and soda. What can parents do to keep unhealthy food away from their kids?

Preparing healthy snacks and lunches at home is one of the best ways to ensure a healthy diet for your kids. Switch from soda to juice, fries to natural chips. It may also be a great way to cut the budget and save money.

You can choose from a variety of healthy snacks such as organic lollipops, natural chips and cookies, nuts, fruit snacks and much more.

In addition, you can use food and beverage containers to save money and help with the second important part of today’s topic: minimize lunchbox garbage and protect the planet.

Reusable lunchboxes are the best way to accomplish this goal. Most food containers are washable, microwave safe and recyclable. Look for BPA-free products. Water bottles are also a great way to eliminate additional garbage. Everyday thousands of pounds of plastic end up as litter in our landfills.

An estimated 3.5 billion pounds of lunchbox garbage is collected every year. Lunchboxes and water bottles can help reduce this scary number.

    This is a great blog. I would add up and site an example of reusable containers that are safe to use. When I’ve learned to have knowledge with the cool stainless steel lunch box’s benefits that can be gain, I started to switch from this type of container. It is very true that when you use stainless steel, you can be in the safe side. It is a great alternative for plastics. And for mother’s/father’s out there, this type of container is recommended to use.
