With school here, it's time to think of our children's diets when it comes to school food. I never had to worry about what my kids were get to eat all the way until they entered college as we homeschooled each one. Yet college is different. Once my kids started the university, all they found in the cafeteria was high priced food, a bunch of fast food shops, and vending machines full of candy. Needless to say, since they were brought up with good nutritious food, they still wanted that, and brought their lunches to school with them.
Now that I only have one left in college, he is just like his older siblings, he takes his lunch and dinner to college with him. His meals usually consist of a sandwiches, fruit, and some homemade cookies. He has to be careful with his sandwiches as they my get squished in his big lunch box. Isn't it dreadful to end up with squished food?
No more squished food! Now I pack both his lunch and dinner into convenient containers from Meal Preppies. No need for a bunch of zip-lock bags anymore. The Meal Preppies Containers keep his food fresh and because they are so sturdy, no more squished food.
The Meal Preppies Containers is not only the perfect item to bring your food with you in, but will also help you with calorie control portions. The three compartments, the larger one: 3 5/8"x 6 1/8", the two smaller ones are each: 4"x 2.75", will help you to take control of portion sizes and keep a person from packing way too much food for one meal.
As a rule of thumb, weight loss and weight maintenance is generally 80 percent diet and 20 percent exercise, so it's really important to eat healthy meals. However, most individuals are time deprived due to work, school, family, etc which causes them to grab the quickest and most closest meal near them (which is usually unhealthy). We, too, are guilty of this infraction at times, but try our best to always eat healthy.
