How to Make Over the Kids' Lunch

Growing up I was very lucky to have a mom that made my lunch every day. Sure there was a time I was embarrassed of my brown bag lunch, but given the food I saw in the hot lunch line, I was mostly very grateful for the food from home. No mystery meat in my brown bag.
