In today’s podcast I talk with Judi Willard about simple ways to make school lunches special. We discuss how something as simple as a note can affect our kids in a positive way. 

Judi is a Licensed Psychotherapist and mom of 2.  She started a company with the mission of improving the quality of everyday life through the sharing of positive kind words. 

Based on the age old tradition of placing a heartfelt note in a child's lunch box and the belief that a parent’s loving words are as essential to a child’s health as a nutritious meal, she and a lifelong friend created Lunchbox Love and has made it her mission to bring love to lunch! The response has been overwhelming.

Judi lives in Lido Beach, with her husband and their 2 children in NY on a small barrier island off the coast of Long Island.
