Since it's now time to get back into the routine of preparing back to school lunches on a daily or weekly basis, these inspiring sandwiches, snacks and other tasty meal ideas should keep kids from getting bored from having the same thing day in and day out.

Rather than packing a lunchbox with a plain old grilled cheese sandwich, why not load it up with veggies for an extra healthy kick? Some other great ideas to make lunchtime staples more exciting and healthy at the same time too include swapping out bread for something as simple as a pretzel, or even a bread that can be made entirely with vegetable-based ingredients. Presentation is also important to any meal, and some of these bento lunches provide great ideas on how to balance delicious foods with good health and artistry.
