This little one loves to get her groove on in the kitchen…


She knows that the kitchen is my and Jamie’s happy place so she wants to be in the refrigerator, pulling out ingredients, or perch at the counter, helping stir, toss, mash and, of course, sample.

Still, the idea of school lunches–even for a household of cooks– is intimidating. How do you make it yummy, healthful and get them to actually eat what you so carefully packed (instead of trading their healthful, whole-wheat wrap for a bag of cookies)?

A few thoughts:

  • Make It Fun
  • Make It Look Good
  • Make It with Quality Ingredients

I need to elaborate, right? Tune in to PIX11 this Thursday (8/28) at 8:30amEST for my and Parker Lee’s rundown of Healthy School Lunch Tips & Tricks. My favorite sous chef will help me whip up her favorite dip and sandwich spread while I help the mamas select the newest, highest quality lunch goodies out there.

Set your DVR’s and do not fret!
