Lunch box planning is very crucial and can make our mornings stress free. It's important to ensure that we take the effort to bring in the nutrition into the kids lunch boxes - as these are the precious years when children develop good muscle mass and also a habit for healthy eating which they will take with them when they become independent adults. 

As always, try to avoid processed food in a snack or a lunch box - it can be a treat for one off days and definitely not on a regular basis. Apart from packing lunch boxes, below is a snack box plan for all those kids who have school only for half a day.
