If packing school lunch is a chore, LaLa Lunchbox is the solution! LaLa Lunchbox is the best-selling meal planning app for families and the only one that involves kids in the process of choosing their foods. The app makes lunch planning and packing easier and helps families save time and money. Kids set up virtual lunchboxes and select meals for the week ahead by feeding a hungry monster from a completely customizable Food Library of healthy options. Kids' choices become a handy grocery list for parents.

No more "what's for lunch" arguments in the morning or uneaten, wasted food at the end of the day. The app teaches children and their families about packing a better lunch, helps kids get out of a picky eating rut, and syncs with multiple devices. Add or remove foods at any time to control what is available for kids to choose. Our new dietary specific food bundles (nut free, gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and kosher) are curated by a dietitian and designed to provide lunch packing inspiration for a variety of lifestyles and eating habits.
