Pizza Lunch Box Kits

Pizza Lunch Kits you can make at home yourself!

For as long as my kids have been attending public school, I have fielded the repeated question of why I will not buy them those easy lunch box kits you find in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. My kids are smart. They read labels. They know to look for high fructose corn syrup …
