4. Prep fruits and vegetables ahead of time. I almost always have a few baggies of our standbys — melon, grapes, strawberries, bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, cucumber — washed and prepped and ready to throw in a lunchbox. I sometimes put off the prep work after grocery shopping and it always adds to the hassle of lunch packing. It’s definitely worth the effort.
