There is a magical word that’s been going around these days and it’s results are mind-boggling …… Have you heard it? It’s none other than ‘Back to School‘ and these days it’s more important than ‘hocus pocus’ 🙂

After almost 3 months of holidays, schools have opened and you can see parents running around to organize or buy last minute stuff.

Just the other day, I was at our local grocery store and the aisle manager apologetically announced to a group of dad’s that the store ran out of a particular box of cereal – Ouch!!! I can so imagine these last minute running around and how stressful it becomes.

So without getting into any more details, here are some really absolutely delicious ‘Back to School Healthy Lunch Ideas’ and the best part, they can all be Made A Night Before and stored in the refrigerator in lunch boxes. Just remember to hand them over to kiddies in the morning.

    Tell me about ” Back to school ” syndrome which I am going through currenty. When you have a picky little eater at home it’s double the frenzy. Thanks Molly for the delicious repertoire of lunch box dishes. My little one will love the Orange colada. Each of the recipes look yummy and are indeed a healthy and wonderful lunch box dish for kids.
