Teaching your kids to pack their own lunchbox? Awesome.
This Sunday, my family and I are going to Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando to participate in the Build a Better Lunchbox event where my girls will participate in a hands-on experience with food. My girls are notorious for being “stuck in a rut” of what they like to eat for lunch, so I’m hoping these kind people will be able to coax them into trying some new lunch foods.
The Build a Better Lunchbox event is making its way around the US, so if you’re not lucky enough to be in Orlando this weekend (Hello, Fall weather!), check out the Loews website for more information.
“Loews Hotels is helping families “Build a Better Lunchbox” to promote healthy eating habits and raise funds to support projects in local schools. Starting in October, Loews Hotels across the U.S. will host fundraising events where children and parents will have the opportunity to learn how to build a healthier lunch together, and at the same time support community schools through DonorsChoose.org, Loews’ newest charity partner, a web-based not-for-profit that supports local school projects for individual sponsorship.”
