We are knew parsnip fans. He likes them raw! I prefer them roasted. Click here to see us try them for the first time on video.

    Roni, I look forward to your lunchbox ideas! My little man is not in school yet, but I am storing lots of great ideas for when he is! Thank you! Reply

    I can't believe he ate raw parsnips! They are so... spicy-ish. We've been on the parsnip bus since last year or so. We love doing them roasted along with brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes, with olive oil and rosemary. Good stuff! Amazing that Ryan will eat them raw though. Reply

    I also can't believe he ate parsnips, raw no less! I bought some after watching your video (I have tried them before and didn't like them) and guess, what, still don't like them. But thanks for the inspiration! Do you find his lunch box has held up well to every day use? I am looking for a new system for my 5 year old. Reply

    It has and let me tell you we beat it up. The only thing wrong with it after almost 3 years (bought it in pre-school) is the alien keychain head fell off the zipper breaking the tip. It still zippers, just makes it a little more difficult to grab hold. Reply

    Regarding your zipper issue, I have seen these in a catalog....might fix your problem. Love your website! Reply
