Allergy-Friendly School Lunches

Happy Back to School everyone!!

I wanted to share this "round-up of round-ups" for those, who like me, who are ill-prepared (yeah ... understatement) for the school year. Today I frantically turned to the blogosphere to hunt down some of the best collections of allergy-friendly school lunch and snack ideas. There's a wealth of inspiration here to help you (and me) keep school lunches from becoming same old same old.

Got a dynamite addition for this list? Just leave a comment with the link and I will add it in.

I've also started a "My Healthy Lunch Box" Pinterest board. Let me know if you want me to add you as a pinner to this board. I'd love to do so. It's empty right now, waiting for you to fill it up : )

As a mother of 3 kids, I always make sure to have all of them will have no problems with their lunch, I want to make sure they are not prone to allergies outside our even let them drink their vitamins and a basil herb tea from http://organicindia.mercola.com/tulsi-tea.aspx and having them visit our family doctor regularly to make sure.
