The challenge of getting kids to eat well continues into high school. What suggestions do you have for bag lunches (with no insulation) for foods that will not spoil before lunch? This is a special challenge for kids with nut allergies!

Hi Parent - I have the same problem with my kids and lunch! I packaged frozen fruit (pineapple, blueberries and peaches) in smaller bags and slip one in their lunch next to the sandwich to keep it cool. It does a pretty good job for awhile, and the fruit is defrosted by the time they eat. Hope this helps. My son is older and can go off campus so often ends up with sushi or a sandwich from Trader Joe's.
