Tips and tricks you should know to buy the best school lunch containers.
This week on Momables Radio, Laura talks to Kelly Lester, the creator of EasyLunchboxes.com, the #1 best-selling lunch containers on Amazon. In addition to being a CEO, wife, and mom of three, Kelly is a singer, actor, and cookbook author.
Kelly shares her insights on finding the right containers to pack healthy school lunches for our kids. She talks about finding the right solution—whatever the product might be—that will make our lives easier and simplify the process of making real food convenient.
When Kelly’s girls started school, she was not thrilled with what school lunches had to offer. She wanted to be able to send her kids to school with simple, healthy food. She soon discovered that the inefficiency of mismatched containers and the frustrating puzzle of putting it all together was enough to drive anyone crazy! This frustration was the inspiration for creating EasyLunchboxes.
Today, Kelly talks about all things lunch. What’s the best way to figure out whether a lunch container will work for your kids? Should you buy lunch bags to fit containers or containers to fit lunch bags? And why in the world does Laura keep lidless EasyLunchboxes in her car?
Kelly believes that laying the foundation for healthy eating starts when your children are young. She discusses her thoughts and offers tips for getting them involved. She also tells us how that foundation paid off in the long run. Hint: Her oldest daughter sends photos to mom of the lunches she’s packed for herself! Kelly’s cookbook Cooking with Trader Joe’s Cookbook: Easy Lunch Boxes even has a whole chapter dedicated to college lunches.
Of course, healthy, easy lunches aren’t just for kids. Kelly and Laura talk about the many benefits of packing lunches for adults too. Saving money is on the top of the list, but that’s just the start.
Finally, in Laura’s “one piece of advice” series, find out what Kelly credits with helping her be successful in all aspects of her life.
