New La La Lunchbox App

My daughter is a creature of habit and loves her peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch. Lately, she has been asking for something different for lunch, but having some picky tendencies I often feel challenged on exactly what to make her. To help both of us out we having been using LaLa Lunchbox, an innovative new app that allows "kids to plan and pack lunches with their parents."

Created by Gillian Fein who experienced her fair share of lunch opinions and complaints from her own daughter sought to change the way kids understand lunchtime by creating, LaLa Lunchbox. Through this fun and easy-to-use app kids can make decisions about their lunch by creating their own lunchboxes that includes fun features like their own name and fun avatars.

How it works is simple. After kids create their own lunchboxes, they then create a menu incorporating a fruit, veggie, protein and a snack by dragging items into the various squares. At four years old my daughter somehow knows how to operate the phone and found this part to be a breeze as she added in some of her favorite fruits like blueberries, cherries and mangoes. Once 4-6 items were in her lunchbox she was done where I then decided what day she would eat the lunches that she picked out - allowing for both meal planning and organization to be easily done in one place. I really loved how the app broke down all of the components of my daughters lunch so that she could easily pick some of her healthy favorites.
