When children take their lunch to school, make good nutrition a priority and involve them in planning the meal. Their choices will make it less likely foods will be traded, go in the garbage or come home uneaten. As a rule of thumb, make sure lunches include at least three of five food groups recognized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's MyPyramid program online at www.mypyramid.gov . If packing a lunch, also think about food safety and storage. Is there a refrigerator in which lunch can be stored, or will it be in a classroom or locker?

Want to save money? Pack your lunch You have heard this before, but it's still true: You can save money by bringing your lunch to work. A typical takeout or convenience meal can easily cost $4 to $6 a day. Packing your lunch can save $3 to $5 every day. Add up that money weekly, then monthly and suddenly you have some serious cash on hand. The time to think about lunches is not at 7:30 in the morning, as you are about to run out the door. Instead, think about the noontime meal when you do your weekly shopping.
