What\’s in your lunchbox?

‘skool Mate

with one comment

I became acutely aware this morning that I will not be able to produce a site that contains a parade of jewel-like photographs of neatly packed, healthy food for my children.  In other words, this morning my husband made lunch.

He will not allow me to photograph it, I'm pretty sure.  But he did buy those capri sun sports drinks the boys love, and know are slightly off limits.

So, in lieu of a photo of the perfect lunch that did not go out of our house this morning, here's a solution to a problem.  The problem:  those soft sided lunch boxes that cannot every really become clean, not even when they're worked over by someone with a toothbrush, a toothpick and a mission.

The solution:  an igloo cooler.  You can hose it down.  It's easy to carry and pretty indestructible.

It's best for young children who like the construction worker look.  By the fifth grade, it's not that cool.  The way you know this?  For a while, they were calling the kid-sized version of this cooler the " 'skool mate."   If an adult tells you it's cool, it's pretty sure not to be.

  1. Well, the husband will get used to you taking more pictures. 🙂 Doug is trained to refrain from eating until I take a picture. Or at least he asks first.

    Have you tried looking here for a lunch box solution?

    I found this site while listening to a podcast called More Hip than Hippie. Makes for a great listen when commuting to work. 🙂
