30 school lunches you can make in 30 minutes or less

We feel for you, parents. 

No matter if you're a meal planner or a last-minute organizer, organizing for back-to-school lunches is never easy. Picky eaters, early start times and conflicting schedules exacerbate this stress -- and no matter how many tips you read or parenting bloggers you follow, each year seems to get harder and harder. 

But until your kiddo is off to college and making his or her own lunch (maybe in a mug?!), check out our list of 30 lunches you can make in half an hour or less. Find your favorites, save 'em for later and get cookin'! 

Scroll through below to see what we're making this week.
