52 School Lunches App Helps Parents Plan Brown Bag

Packing school lunches can get repetitive. To help parents generate new ideas and add a little spice to their child’s brown bag, Familius has created an app called 52 School Lunches.

The cookbook app includes 52 different ways to “make lunch special.” It includes recipe suggestions with bright photos, ingredient lists and directions on making meals. The entries are varied and not your usual everyday PB&J. The idea is to help make lunches more fun for kids, and the recipes also include presentation instructions. Fruit salsa rollup anyone? Cupcake wrapper fruit tray? The recipes also include nutrition information to help parents create well-rounded meals.

The app is available for $1.99 on iTunesGoogle PlayAmazon for Kindle Fire, and Barnes & Noble for Nook, and $2.99 for Windows Phone.
