|One of the biggest things that moms struggle with during the school
year is lunches. Figuring out what to send, how to get it there and how
you can make sure it's still edible when lunchtime rolls around.|
As we work to pack zero waste lunches, there are quite a few
companies helping us out with some great compartment style lunch boxes.
Also known as bento style lunch boxes, these sets are perfect for kids
who like variety and those who don't want their food to touch.
