Packing lunch to your family can be easy or hard thing to do. That too early in the morning (I call it military hour), while also getting hot breakfast ready for everyone.
We don’t do cereal or cereal bars in my home. Believe me, I tried. But it just didn’t work for us. So that puts me in charge of making both breakfast for family of 4 and pack 3 lunchboxes in 30-45 mins every weekday.
So, with the morning rush, I try to make them both easy, simple but healthy. I am a big believer of eating nuts, fruits and greens. Every lunch box must have entree, fruits and nuts (Of course, I check with my kids teacher at the beginning of the year to make sure there are no allergies in their class).
I will be posting the lunch box ideas every Thursday in May starting this week. Its simple without much prep on the day and mostly healthy.

PS: My kids school provides the condiments like maple syrup, ketchup etc. So, I don’t pack them with the box as it was getting messy.
