“Hi Rebecca. All kids loved making their lunches. We even got 2 children who refuse to eat fruit and veg at home and whose mother drops fried food into them every lunch time eating the healthy foods with no complaints! 1 of them even had 2 helpings! The children got a lot out of it so well worth your time.”
