LaLa Lunchbox was created by MBA mom and healthcare professional Gillian Fein, who was looking for a system that would make planning lunches for her school-age daughter easier.
As a mom of two young kids, I know that getting children to eat balanced meals is invariably a struggle for all of us at some point, says Fein. But when kids have a say in their meals, they feel empowered and less food is wasted and unwanted. Families who use LaLa Lunchbox will give their children the opportunity to plan healthy lunches and will feel less friction around this issue as a result.
LaLa Lunchbox is available now on the iTunes Store for 1.99 (itunes.apple.com/us/app/lala-lunchbox). Images available upon request.
