Kids are constantly being bombarded with commercials for fast food and all sorts of junk food. At school, children have limited options because most schools offer a culinary horror featuring an assortment of processed foods, genetically modified foods, loaded with preservatives to create each so-called “balanced” meal.

Kathy Patalsky is the creator of the healthy kids brand The Lunchbox Bunch(www.healthy-happy-life.com). Her LBB mission is to inspire kids of all ages to be curious about food. She encourages and teaches children to taste, love and learn about a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes.
