(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.
