Cool alternative to brown bag
You have bought your kids new backpacks and upgraded their wardrobes to the latest styles, so it’s only fair that you don’t subject them to another year of the peanut butter and jelly doldrums. Concerns about food spoiling may limit what you pack unless you have the Lunch Pod by Fit Fresh ($6.99) with a removable ice pack under the lid. This neat square pod will give you an array of healthy options: turkey and cheese on multigrain bread, salads, leftovers from last night’s dinner. The container is dishwasher and microwave safe, PBA free, and the ice pack snaps out of the lid for re-freezing. So cool! Available at Stop & Shop and Toys R Us or www.fit-fresh.com.
