Whether your kids are going back to the classroom or doing distance learning (or both, like us!), it’s time to start thinking about “back to school” again.

So, for those who’d like to create structure by packing lunches in advance—no matter where your kids are schooling—here is the latest installment in my School Lunch Roundup series! Get your little ones involved by asking them which items in these pictures they’d like to see in their next packed lunch.
