Creative mums share snaps of their Disney-themed packed lunches as their kids go back to school

BRITISH kids are heading back-to-school, in their shiny school shoes and with a packed lunch under their arm.

And their proud mums are sharing snaps of their creative lunches – inspired by Disney, Pixar, cartoon characters and Marvel comic book heroes.

My daughter is crazy about Cars and Lightning McQueen! 🚘

Pics of the time-consuming creations are sweeping social media, while bento boxes are trending on photo sharing site Pinterest.

From a Minion sandwich to an alien apple, below are some of the most mouth-watering lunch boxes we've seen.

Of course, if you're a bit tight for time, you could try sticking some googly eyes on an apple and feeding your kids leftover pizza – like one of these mums did.

While another made a pirate's face out of rice crackers and a slice of ham, and a third cut a sandwich into the shape of Minnie Mouse's head.

Feeling blue?

Pizza Planet

"You have been chosen… to have a great day!" Leftover pizza & a request for green apples inspired today's trip to Pizza Planet for my kid's lunch.
