A new survey shows that the lunch box is still very much with us. In fact, in 400.000 of every 1.000,000. American homes somebody £ets a packed lunch four or five times a week. And who eats it? Figures say that 20 per cent of all lunch boxes are toted by grade s c h o o l youngsters. 11 per cent by- teenagers and IS per cent by women. But it's father who is dean of the dinner pail -- 54 per cent of packed lunches are eaten by the family breadwinner. Tempting l u n c h box meals can be the most appealing of the d a y when they are packed with a variety of foods that provide contrasting flavors and textures. A good rule of thumb to follow in lunch box menu planning is to include something hearty -- something crisp or juicy -- something sweet -- and a hot nourishing beverage such as soup. * · · · ·TODAY'S LU.\CH° BOX has come a long way from the paper bag days.
