Tips on Packing Lunches!

I don’t pack lunches for my kids. I know… call me lazy if you want, but I just don’t do it.   The only time I “have” to pack a lunch is when they are going on a field trip.  Even then, I make it a point to be as simple as possible.  NSF International – a nonprofit organization that is committed to protecting public health and safety by developing standards and certifying products against those standards.
