Love your lunch bag. 5 ways to trick out your @easyLunchboxes cooler bag

DIY DAZZLE - Decorate your Cooler Bag

Yep, my EasyLunchboxes cooler bags are simple, sleek, functional, and perfect for carrying your EasyLunchboxes food containers to work or school. But sometimes, a little glam or creativity goes a long way when you’re looking to stand out from the crowd.

Jonathan Fong, my dear friend and go-to designer for all things spectacularly creative (you simply MUST check out his BLOG and VIDEOS) has just the ticket for cool looking cooler bags!

A regular eHow contributor, Jonathan shows you exactly how to trick out your cooler bags, step by step!

And if you’re not the DIY type, no worries! Take the lunch bags to your local monogram shop like Crystal did! This mom of 7 wrote to me:

Hi Kelly!  We’re getting ready for Back to School and I thought you’d get a little chuckle out of our set up. This is our alternative to matching “Pottery Barn” backpacks and lunchboxes. Enjoy the photo!”  -Crystal and family

Satellite Media Tour – Packing School Lunches

Last week I was delighted to be invited back (by one of my favorite production companies, A-1 Broadcast) to appear on over two dozen morning news shows about back-to-school lunch packing.

This is all done in one studio (I got to make a quick trip from my home in Los Angeles to Atlanta) via satellite. The “technical” name for this kind of appearance is a Satellite Media Tour. For about 4 hours straight last Friday morning I chatted with TV and Radio newsfolk from all over the country for a few minutes each.

As back to school is just around the corner, parents everywhere are looking for ways to make packing lunches just a little easier, as well as nutritious. And of course, it helps if they pack foods their kids will actually like :) So I shared some of my tips, as well as two of my fave lunch box foods – Mini Babybel Cheese and California Raisins.

Here’s one of the segments. (With Jason Feinberg of KVVU, Las Vegas)

Watch it!

PACK it!

Yes. My toddler can pack her own lunch.

Letting kids help, whether it’s prepping, packing, or even just choosing ingredients, gives them a sense of ownership over the meal. So it tastes better.
