Participating in the Back to School Healthy Sack Lunch Challenge

Over the weekend, I participated in the “Back to School Healthy Sack Lunch Challenge” presented by Dr. Riba’s Health Club in Irvina, Calif. Each participant’s challenge was to create a fun and healthy sack lunch that kids would enjoy eating and that follow a set of nutritional guidelines.

The mission of Dr. Riba’s Health Club is extremely important — childhood obesity is a problem in America, and we need to work harder to solve the root issues so kids develop lifelong good eating habits and can plan to have a more healthful life as they grow older.
