Ecotot: Healthy Lunch Boxes You'll Be Proud to Pack

Packing lunch and snacks for school-age children can be a tricky chore. My little school gal loves apples, fruit leathers, and cheese sandwiches one week, and despises them the next. While you can't plan for alterations in their taste buds, you can map out how you will pack the goods.

FitSugar suggests whipping up new lunch habits for the new year and I couldn't agree more. Anything will taste better if it arrives in a BPA-free Goodbyn lunchbox ($30), which can be decorated and toted about town without spillage or daily plastic bag waste. Looking for something smaller or less detailed? Try one of the colorful options below. Who knows, the new carrier may trick them into eating their greens.

My little one is totally going green, and had me purchase a little Hannah Montana food thermos. Now, left over pasta, chicken, you name it can be quickly heated up and put in her new thermos, and voila...a hot and homecooked meal at school! I've also used it for salad, because it keeps it cool. No more juice boxes either! She has a liquid thermos that she totes soy milk, or low sugar juice in! The only trick? Making sure she puts her thermos' in the sink so they can be washed! :)
