One of LiveWell Colorado's initiatives is improving school lunches.  Most kids would make the unhealthy choice when it comes to food they buy at school.  However, LiveWell Colorado is not only encouraging parents and teachers to make the healthier option fun, but they are working to educate students so they want to make the healthier choice. 

LiveWell Colorado has their 3rd annual fundraising luncheon coming up on December 13th.  For more information and to register, click here.

This year Jack is in a parent's day out program, so once a week I pack him a lunch.  I definitely try to have Jack eat as healthy as possible, but he is a typical 2-year-old that if given the choice he would fill up on foods that aren't as nutritious. 

I think the best thing that works for me right now is that Jack sees me eating the same healthy foods that he does.  Below is a picture of the first lunch I packed him.  I made sure to cut up everything into small pieces, and to give him plenty of options!
