A little over a year ago, I was on a girls trip at the beach. We were talking about the desire to feed our kids healthy lunches, but the struggle to pack them and come up with new ideas. Over a glass of wine, we chatted about what a business to aid in this struggle might look like. We had the idea that it needed to be a bento-style lunch. At the end of the conversation, I said, “Ok great, but I am not ready to take this business on so let’s set the intention that it either already exists or will exist.” Fast forward, a couple of days and I find myself in a class I am taking with Kristen Oliver, and I overhear this girl talking about how her company is getting ready to launch a bento style kids meal line. I quickly turned and asked, “Who are you?” Lucky for me, that day I learned about The Good Kitchen and “the lunchbox” meals they were developing. I not only immediately loved their product, but quickly became close friends with the amazing CEO and founder, Amber Lewis. Speaking of which, I just read a great article Amber wrote about what she learned in the kitchen from her mom.
I had so much fun being invited into the conversation around planning the kids meals taking into consideration texture, color and taste for even the picky ones! We keep the adult meals in the freezer for nights when things are too hectic to prep and cook dinner. They also make for a great lunch for my husband at work.
