Now that summer is retreating into our memories and back to school is all around, I finally started some back to school shopping. I am happy to report that it was easier this year to find a lead-free / pvc-free lunch box! http://www.crocodilecreek.com/ I also had an easy time with reusable water bottles! http://www.mysigg.com/ It's so nice to finally have some eco-choices for kids that they actually like!
The big question is what to pack this year?? I'm always on the look out for interesting lunch box menus so if anyone is willing to share please let us know. I've posted a picture of our Dark Chocolate cookies because they are my 6 yr old's favorite. Made with whole grains and real organic dark chocolate, I feel good about packing one cookie as a treat. The kids and I also love to make snack mix using our cheddar cheese minis, bite size cheese crackers and a variety of other ingredients that the kids choose. You can get a back to school sampler of our mini cheese and bite size cheese at our webstore to get you started. http://www.shoplatejuly.com/organicminicheesesampler.aspx
