by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on August 23, 2009

Lunch Box BuilderSince I homeschool, I very rarely have to pack lunches for my kiddos, but even when we’re home, you will most likely find us munching on Goldfish crackers and applesauce!

Now, I know that most you are trying to get back in to the habit of packing healthy lunches for your kiddos to take to school, so I’m here to remind you that it’s not necessary to spend a fortune to give your children a healthy lunch that packs well.

Smucker’s, Mott’s and Pepperidge Farms would like to help you out as you send your kiddos off to school with healthy lunches. Head over to www.lunchboxbuilder.com, create a custom lunchbox and print out some great coupons for Goldfish Crackers and Uncrustables Sandwiches.

Once you’ve done that, come back here (don’t worry, I’ll wait…) and enter to win a fab lunchbox care package, worth $150!
