Packing lunch for kids is an exercise to the brain. If you have more than 1 kid, then coming up with options that both of them like is like solving analytical questions in a competitive exam. Which is why I chose it to be the theme for this month’s Kid’s Delight event. Thanks to Valli for giving me this opportunity.

My kids are getting ready to go back to school next week. With these dishes from my lovely blog buddies, I think I’m prepared to send some delicious lunches for my kids. Thank you to all of you who sent in your kid approved lunchbox recipes. If I missed anyone, then please let me know — I’ll add them to the roundup.
