Dempster’s Lunch Box Inspirations & A Panini Grill Give Away


It’s 10pm at night and I am happy to report I am not one of those Mom’s who is frantically trying to figure out what on earth I am going to put in my daughters lunch boxes tomorrow. This my friends is a change. I was often the Mama who struggled with beating the lunchtime boredom, and keeping those tummies fed in a healthy way. After all, there is only so many sandwich combos you can put in a lunch box right? Wrong! The key for me, preparing all lunches the night before. No exception. Having a fridge full of yummy and healthy choices for the kids to get their chef on with, and the biggest one, thinking outside the um bag. 🙂

Need some help to get out of the “Lunch Time Rut”? Let me introduce you to a new special section on the website. Lunch Box Inspirations. On this fabulous site you will find recipes, tips and new and fresh ideas to help inspire you and your little one’s. Lunch time can be fun!
