READER-TESTED TOOLS The end of summer doesn’t have to mean a new season of spilled bags, crumbs, stains, and stress. A whole fleet of smart school-day solutions has cropped up, and we asked some of our Allrecipes community members (and their kids) to test them out “The FlatBox kept my lunch fresh and cold, and I love the modern design.

KID STUFF If you’ve ever felt you had to choose between getting the kids fed and getting them dressed and groomed on a school morning, we feel your pain. Here are some tips to help get everyone out the door with minimal hassle. PUT BREAKFAST WITHIN REACH. That high-up shelf of cereals isn’t doing you any favors.
