Earlier this year, we picked our favorite mom food blogs from across the web. These moms sure do know their way around a kitchen. With school back in session, we thought it's be the perfect time to ask them what their go-to school lunches to make for the kids are. You won't find soggy PB&Js and pre-packaged snacks in these lucky kids' lunch boxes! Get inspired by these moms' tips, and find out their favorite recipes for brown-baggin'-it. - By Babble Editors
