Preventing the Lunchbox Boomerang

The scene for some parents looks like this: You lovingly create a Fortnite character from ham, nestled against a backdrop of your child’s favourite crackers. The crusts are off the honey sandwich, as demanded. There is a packet of the favourite chippies and a bar that claims to contain veggies but seems to be mostly sugar.  You add an apple and a carrot stick for freshness and to assuage guilt. Then you send it out into the world with a host of kisses and wait, impatiently.
