There's shopping for the best first day outfit and the latest school supplies while also thinking about their favourite meals to make into travel-friendly lunches.
We've done the leg work for you and compiled the top 10 back-to-school lunch ideas that are proven to be travel-friendly and kid-approved - for kids of all ages.
