Carrying your own lunch box is a good idea not just for kids but for adults as well. Not only it does give an opportunity to avoid plastic disposable packaging but also the control on what we eat and how much we eat. 

What we eat should have a good combination of all the essential nutrients our body needs packed into clean healthy toxic free food. 

As we all know about the ill effect of plastic on the environment including animals and birds, little do we talk about the adverse effects of plastic on us humans.
