One way to avoid the last-minute rush of lunch making in the mornings is to prepare the night before. As you’re getting dinner ready, or later in the evening, prepare everything you can in advance. Put all the perishable lunch ingredients together in one place in the fridge and put the non-perishables and utensils in the lunchbox, ready to go. That way, come morning, all you have to do is pop the last fixings in the lunchbox, and away you go!
