Like every parent, Carine Rosalia knows the importance of feeding kids healthy, balanced, not just for their overall growth but to ensure that they have enough to sustain them through the day to focus in school. But finding ideas for what to pack in the lunch every day and actually finding the time to make can be a real challenge. And then there is no guarantee that children will actually to want to eat their lunch.
Enter This & That Lunch Kit, all the accessories that parents need to involve kids in the lunch making preparation and make easy, healthy and fun lunches in advance for the week to avoid the hassle in the morning. Carine started the concept of a lunch box kit to help make parents lives easier and children’s lunches healthier when shewas transitioning from maternity leave back to her career as an attorney in private international law. She drew from her childhood in France and brought in the expertise of a French nutritionist to come up with perfectly balanced meals with proportions just right for kids. She also designed an easy system and fun accessories to make everyday chores, like preparing the lunch box, into a bonding activity with her daughter.
Carine is launching This & That Lunch Kit on Kickstarter this month before putting her product for retail. She also maintains a blog full of kid-friendly recipes and DIY ideas based on the fruit of the season. Carine explains more about her concept for a healthy lunch box and the story or her beginnings in this interview. You can also check fun kids activities at Tiny Tribes for further ideas.
