Back to School Lunchbox Planner

School is back in session! For parents, that means the added duty of packing a nutritious lunch to sustain your kid’s mental power and energy throughout the day.

Ideally, there should be a source of protein, fat, and either a fruit or vegetable (bonus points if you get both in). A little treat is okay too, as long as the added sugar content is minimal to none.
