Weekend Reading


Shopping for back to school lunch totes? Great Round-up of safe kid food containers and lunch boxes on the Feed our Families blog.

Speaking of safe kid lunches, a study reported in US News and world Report among other outlets says home-packed lunches reach unsafe temperatures before they are eaten.  But you should also check out this rebuttal over at The Lunch Tray. Still, throw in another ice-pack while you're at it.

Read a great summary of Lunch Wars by Amy Kalafa (of Two Angry Moms) at PsychCentral.  It's a scary description of the state of school lunch - but it also tells us what we can do (hint: join the nutrition committee at our school.)

After that, you may wish to pack lunch for your kid. If so, check out these lunch ideas at Epicurious.

Things to Do

On Sunday afternoon, the Long Island Children's Museum will be celebrating watermelon with a tasting, games and educational activities.

This Saturday starts the New York Botanical Garden's series - Mario Batali's Edible Garden.
