My life as a mom is a hectic life, and it is tough too. What makes it tougher is the thought of packing an appetizing and healthy tiffin box for a school-going kid. As moms, we are always wanting to pack everything healthy in our kid’s lunch boxes, wanting to be sure that our little munchkins eat nutritious food and stay healthy.

Healthy Food Tiffin Ideas 01

Just as most other mommy friends I was always struggling to find good and fun tiffin-box recipes for my son. Constantly googling lunchbox food ideas, quick recipes, mostly healthy snacking/lunch options for school which looked good, and tasted heavenly. I would ask other moms about what did they pack in their kids’ lunchboxes. I was only hoping to not see my child bringing his tiffin back home. I was obsessing over it so much that my dreams were about rainbow food, grape eyes, banana cheeks, rice puddings, and gourmet salads. Literally eating, breathing and sleeping tiffin box recipes!!
