If you’re like me, at the end of every summer, you quickly assess your school inventory and scramble to restock for the upcoming school year. I aim to take close inventory and purchase only WHAT I think we need. However, I often spend more on new backpacks, lunch boxes, containers, and water bottles. And then there’s the “cool” new item that my kids must have. So, when it’s all said and I done, I have quickly spent a chunk of change to just get my kids out the door for their first day of school.
And we are now all back to school (and yes, we in the south go back much earlier it seems than the rest of the country). So possibly the last thing you are thinking is about another back-to-school item, especially after you have spent time and money, and we are well into the year.
But what if I challenged you that this isn’t a WHAT item, but rather a HOW item?! After all, spending that money on the products does not help my kids learn how to pack their school bags nor their lunches nor does it prepare them for the weeks and months ahead.
But, u*do*lunch is that HOW product! Yes, it is a physical item. But it is also so much more than that. It teaches kids the essential Ps – to Plan, Purchase, Prepare, and Pack their lunches. This product helps kids become active members of their household, directly teaching meal planning and nutrition while also indirectly teaching kids the value of products and the cost of waste. It also takes the complete ownership off of the parents and transfers part of it to the kids, which we have learned that kids want and cherish.
