Lemon Turkey Greek Meatballs

The Perfect School Lunch

It’s been only a few weeks since the start of the new school year, but my kids are already bored of school lunches! So I enlisted the help of R Crazy Incredible Life in my quest to find the perfect school lunch… easy to make ahead, freezes well, very versatile (four lunchtime variations are given, but we know you could dream up even more)… and kid-approved!

And while you’re there, browse through pod and sensor covers to liven up your family’s daily diabetes care… lighten the emotional load of diabetes, have fun, and open up an avenue for your child to express their unique interests, from hockey/sports to Lego to robots to art to unicorns & princesses. Or submit your own photo for custom covers. These vinyl covers are durable, waterproof, reusable, and distributed in Canada (to keep your cost as low as possible!) by a D-mom whose goal was to bring joy to her daughter in the face of life-enhancing but often-dreary medical devices like insulin pumps and CGM.
