“Packing lunchboxes is my favourite time of the day!” – said no parent ever.
I totally understand, packing lunchboxes is a total pain, but the good news is that it’s just as easy to pack a supercharged, healthy lunchbox, as it is to pack a nasty one that’s going to set your child up for yawning or distracted behaviour all afternoon.
