Top 5 Finalists, Planetbox School Lunch Competition!

As you know Eric Hulse and I are running a school lunch competition and someone is winning a free Planetbox brand lunchbox!


Eric and I received many beautiful pictures of school lunches. I am very impressed with what I have seen. This gives me hope that people are realizing the affect processed foods have on their children. Eric and I  narrowed it down to our top 5 favorite colorful, nutrient dense, and creative lunch combinations! We are excited to share our top 5 finalists with you, and you get to pick who wins the Planetbox by voting in the comment section!


Please vote by tomorrow, Sunday September 15th 2013 at 9pm EST!!! Just comment on my blog or Eric’s Blog as to which lunch is your favorite. The lunch with the top votes will win the Planetbox!
