In today’s Sunday paper by the Union Tribune, they had a great insert on “ARE YOU READY?” for the next 72 hours if you are in a disaster.  It had great and very useful and insightful information.  It looked like the perfect way to roll up all our tips (green, health and food) into one informative article.  However, the UT has not made it available on-line.  So back to the life of “bing” and “Google” and found these great sites.  So here are your weekly tips of green, health and food, all rolled into one.

Creative Lunch Ideas

Posted on 19. Sep, 2010 in Food

Hello Friends! School has been back in session for a few weeks and it’s time again to start getting inspired for your kids for lunch. Between fighting to get them out of bed and getting them dressed, packing a healthy lunch is probably the last thing on your mind. Not to mention the other battle of getting your kids to actually eat the lunch you packed- not see it end up in the playground trashcan.

The key to getting your kids to eat their lunch is making it fun to do so. We found a wonderful blog by a mother from Michigan called momcooks.net, that has many creative ideas on how to liven up your kid’s lunch. Here are a few of them. Click here to get all of the recipes.

Crazy Eights

Lunch is a lot more fun when you have eight of everything. Here’s a great idea, pick your child’s favorite combination of healthy snacks and package them up in eights. You’d be surprise how much more fun it is that way!

Tic Tac Toe Lunch

Obviously playing with your food is always more fun! Turn lunch time into play time with this creative food idea.

Safari Lunch

Why not give each lunch a theme? This is an easy way to get your child excited about lunch each day. Besides safari, try what Shamu eats (tuna salad, goldfish, sushi, shark fruit snacks, cheese slices cut into fish with cookie cutters).
