Here at ChopChop, we love a good picnic. And Sunday’s virtual community Big Picnic was no exception! We had hundreds of people “join” us and over 150 photos and links were shared on Sunday. The goal of The Big Picnic was to encourage families to cook together, and then share photos and recipes as a way to inspire and learn from each other. So what did you all bring to the picnic? Here’s just sampling:
After thirty years of crippling increases in the childhood obesity rate, last week the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that between 2008 and 2011, obesity declined among low- income pre-schoolers in 19 states and US territories.

It's back to school! And we have loads of lunch recipes and tips in our new Fall issue, including some very cool lunchboxes to pack your lunches in. Keep lunchtime cool with a Gourmet Getaway Mini Lunch Tote by BUILT. Based off of their original Gourmet Getaway Lunch Tote, their “best-selling lunch tote has been resized to accommodate smaller appetites, making it perfect for kids’ lunches and carrying snacks while you run errands.” Looking for something a little more playful? Grab a Big Apple Buddies Lunch Bag or Lunch Sack.
