The whole motivation behind TLT’s “It Takes a Village to Pack a Lunch” series is to provide a forum for readers to help each other with the daily grind of packing school lunches. And what better help could there be than someone doing all the thinking for you?
That’s the premise behind MOMables, a lunch box menu service that provides subscribers with a weekly lunch plan each Friday (complete with photos), along with a shopping list. According to the company:
Most of the recipes you’ll make ahead of time saving precious time in the morning. There are no special gadgets needed to make your kid’s lunch, no hard-to-find ingredients, no processed food and no lengthy recipes. MOMables™ is all about uncomplicated yet good food for your kids. In nearly all recipes, you’ll be able to swap ingredients to accommodate for food allergies and ultra-picky eaters. Unlike store-bought lunches, MOMables™ recipes provide kid-sized portions you can adjust based on your child’s eating needs.
I’ve never used MOMables myself, but when I was contacted by its founder and TLT reader, Laura Feuntes, I couldn’t turn down her offer of a free three-month subscription for one lucky Lunch Tray reader.
All you have to do is leave a comment below and I’ll use a random number generator tomorrow (August 31, 2011) at 6pm CST to select a winner. Just to keep it inspirational, how about leaving a comment that’s either about your goal for this year’s lunch packing (e.g., “I’m really going to try to cut down on lunch waste“) or your child’s favorite lunch box item, especially if it’s one that others might not have thought of. That way, even those of us who don’t win the subscription can still get some fresh ideas.
Have fun and good luck!
