  • The rising cost of your kids' lunch gear

    Published: Wed, Jul 30, 2014

    (Reuters) - When it comes to kids' lunches, we've come a long way from PB&J, an apple and a cookie in a brown paper bag. Beau Coffron, of Fremont, California, packs his daughter's school lunches in stainless steel containers that cost at least $20 a pop. He apportions all of her food into little compartments, making cartoon characters like Charlie Brown and animal shapes such as tigers and llamas out of the ingredients. Her sports water bottles cost about $10, and the sack to carry it all came with the lunch kits but would retail separately for about $25.

  • Why we're eating less beef

    Published: Tue, Jul 29, 2014

    Beef. It's still what's for dinner, but not as often as it used to be. At least, that's what recent USDA data suggests, Reviewed.com reports. According to department records, Americans consumed roughly 300 million pounds less beef in 2013 than they did in 2012. In fact, per capita consumption has been dropping since beef-eating peaked 94.4 pounds in 1976. Last year, it hit an all-time low of 56.4 pounds per person. But a recent report from Mother Jones argues that dwindling consumer preference for beef—while worrying for U.S. cattle producers—may be good news for everyone in the long run, Reviewed.com reports.
