SparkPeople want to help you get your kids off to a healthy start this school year. That's why we are giving away 10 copies of our latest e-book: A Month of Fun and Healthy School Lunches from SparkPeople, written by our very own Samantha Donohue, dailySpark blogger and healthy lunch packer extraordinaire.

Since Samantha's three children were born, she has prepared more than 8,000 healthy lunches, which means that she has also cut more than 64,000 crusts off her kids' sandwiches. She has tons of great tips and tricks for packing creative, nutritious meals that kids will like--and that won't take very much time! We also asked Dietitian Becky, who has a son in high school and a daughter in college, and Chef Meg, who has three teenage boy--including twins, for their best ideas! 

We think it's just what you need to get kids excited about packing lunch--with ideas and recipes for meals they'll actually eat.

    DACLARK-- People cut off the crusts because kids do not like the texture or taste. Believe it or not, it's a turn off for a lot of kids. - 8/30/2012   5:39:07 AM

    I believe this might be a very useful e-book for a friend of mine who struggles with sending their children to school with healthy (and items they will eat) foods! I am sending the link her way. - 8/27/2012   9:30:25 PM
