Super Awesome Vegan/Vegetarian Lunch Options for Little Ones!

The most popular posts that I put up on the Willy B Mum Facebook Page are the pictures of Miles Storm’s lunches that I make for him. So today, I am dedicating my writing to highlighting a group of those plate creations.

I do often get compliments on how healthy the lunches are that I put together for my Son. Some people are even in disbelief as to how I came up with such combinations.

Take an art project and turn it Green — For OUR Earth & OUR Children’s Future.

Art Supplies. Eco-Friendly or Run-Of-The-Mill?

These days, with the force of  the Labeling Hazardous Art Materials Act (LHAMA) child related art supplies are tested for safety. But, that does not mean that companies have to take the harmful chemicals out of their products before they put them on the shelves for us to buy. Oh No, it is quite the opposite, by law companies are not even required to list all the ingredients! This means that many art items still contain all kinds of health hazard toxins like lead (pencils/paint), acetone (instant glues), benzene & hexane (rubber cement), and arsenic (pigment in paint). Products labeled as ‘non-toxic’ tend to be misleading because they refer ONLY to the immediacy of the poisoning if ingested, inhaled, or absorbed by the skin. This means that they Do Not explain any long-term danger by using the product.
Scary!!
