Motivation for Kids to Eat Healthy Lunches

Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 8.59.20 AMI had such a great time on with CBS 2’s Marissa Bailey talking about getting kids interested in healthy lunches. We went through three examples of lunches that might motivate children based on their specific personalities.

The advice was based on my recent book (illustrated by my then 12-year old son, Alexander): Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow.

See below for the lunch pictures and ideas of how to motivate your own kids, and watch the several minute interview.

A HUGE thank you to my mom Marilyn who helped  me to shop, arrange, and photograph these lunches.  We had such a blast together! 🙂

Enjoy a healthy back to school!

Tell us what YOU think!
