The new school year has started and I'm back to packing lunchboxes. I cook a lot, but sometimes I get totally overwhelmed when it comes to packing a lunchbox meal. I want to pack something healthy, but it has to be fun and tasty too. It also has to travel well and look tempting to both my (sometimes) picky eaters. I decided to get some help so I went online and checked out FoodNetwork.com for some tips and lunchbox ideas. They had a bunch, but today I went with these fabulous Roasted Turkey and Basil Cream Cheese Pinwheel Sandwiches. They were a cinch to put together and they were healthy, tasty and got a big thumbs up from both the kids.

Here are some tips I also used to keep things neat and easy for the kids. I used paper cupcake liners to keep the pinwheels in place. Make sure you to tell your kids to remove the toothpick before they eat them. Remember to place an ice pack in their lunchbox to keep all the food cool and fresh. Also avoid packing a boring and plain looking meal with pre-packaged items that usually lack any nutritional value. Pack a colorful work of art so your kids can get excited opening up their lunchbox to see a rainbow of food waiting for them to enjoy. Here's to happy lunchbox packing parents!
