In the Southern United States, Hoppin’ John (a traditional soul food) is thought to bring prosperity in the New Year. The story goes, that the peas are supposed to bring you good luck and the greens are supposed to bring you money. I am not southern, but man do I love black eyed peas and I love greens so when I first read about this tradition, I was all over it.

Here is a list of some of the lunch box items that my kids will get throughout the school year. I am not perfect. I don’t cut their crackers into duck shapes or their sandwiches into suns and moons (truth be told, my kids hate sandwiches). I strive to have a few healthy options in their box every day.
