Safe Lunchboxes

Q: I am flumoxed about lunchboxes. I really don’t want my child to eat school lunches that are less healthy than I can make, but I’ve read that lunchboxes can contaminate food with lead and plastics. Do you have safe lunchbox recommendations? –Sharron, MI

A: Making healthy lunches at home is a great idea, as is packing the food in the safest way. Care2′s Green Living editor Melissa Breyer has written a great article on lunchboxes as part of our Easy Greening series. Read about the issues, recommendations, and reader contributions to the subject, here: Lunchboxes: Easy Greening
