A MUM OF THREE has taken to TikTok to share a 'realistic' packed lunch to reassure other parents that she doesn't always have time for picture-perfect boxes.
Hannah, known online as @hannahhomeeducates, regularly shares parenting tips with her 162,000 followers.
Every week, Hannah shares what she puts inside her three homeschooled kids’ lunchboxes to give other parents some inspiration.
The boxes, split into different-sized compartments, often contain a sandwich, some fruit and a range of snacks.
But in a new video, the single mum shares a ‘realistic’ packed lunch, after admitting that she hasn’t had time to do a food shop yet.
She said: “Hey, so you know I do those, ‘what’s in my kids’ packed lunches'.
