As a mom of 4 children under age 11, I needed help. It was crazy some days trying to get everyone organized, dressed and out the door, much less put together lunches that my kids and I would both want to eat. The help I needed just wasn’t out there, so I decided to do it myself, with the help of my girlfriends who were all in the same boat as me. I began thinking through how to create a nutritious, lunch that my kids and I would both actually eat, and that my Italian grandparents would recognize as food.
I knew I wanted it to have all the things I would use if I were putting it together in my kitchen. The meat had to have no nitrates, no antibiotics or hormones and be raised humanely. The rest of the ingredients needed to be simple, real food that my kids could pronounce. And finally, I knew that it had to be combinations my kids and their friends would love, along with a treat I could accept.
