Guest Bio: Gabriella Wlday, Co-Founder of No Fuss Lunch
Gaby Head Shot Gabriella Wilday is a mother that is making a difference. Gabriella saw the poor food choices available for school lunches first hand.

These school offerings mainly included processed foods that were not fresh, organic, or toxin-free. Gabriella set out to find out why cost effective lunch options containing "real" food, the kind of food that many families try to serve at home, were missing from school lunches. That led to No Fuss Lunch, a company that provides lunches with natural high quality "real" food.

No Fuss Lunch started in October of 2012 with seven lunches served per day at one school. Now, No Fuss Lunch has grown to serving thousands of students, campers, and families per day with inquires from all over the country.

Like Gabriella says, "No Fuss Lunch is not fussy," it is about not being behind the times. It is about making strides for a healthier future for our children and that message resonates with parents all over. Everything is made freshly from scratch daily, in a commercial, health-inspected kitchen.
How to Pack a Well-Balanced Meal
Having a picky eater in your household can make packing a school lunch extremely difficult, especially if you're pressed for time in the morning and juggling several other tasks.

It might seem easier to give your kids money and allow them to buy their lunch from the cafeteria. However, without knowing proper nutrition, this can lead to unhealthy eating habits and health issues later in life.

How can you pack a well-balanced meal with proper nutrition?

Co-Founder of No Fuss Lunch, Gabriella Wlday, joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss how you can pack a healthy, well-balanced meal in little time.
