National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day is October 17th!


On October 17, parents across the country will be sitting down with their child to eat lunch together in their school’s cafeteria–and starting the conversation about healthy school lunch with staff and administrators.

What a GREAT idea! My boys love love when I come to their school for lunch.

Do you go to lunch with your kids? Will you be able to on October 17th?


I am entered into a giveaway for sharing this post.
