Back to school can be a stressful time for both parents and students.

But some of that stress can be eliminated with a few smartphone apps.

A 99-cent iPhone app, LaLa Lunch Box is a colorful, easy-to-use app, kids can build their well-balanced lunches ahead of time by dragging their favorite foods into a virtual lunchbox.

The food they choose will automatically populate a shopping list for mom and dad.

Carpool -- School Edition is a great free app for iPhone users.

Parents can keep track of that complicated weekly or daily schedule with members of your carpooling circle and record who is driving each way.

This app also allows for notes for special circumstances.

Also you can ease your kids into the school year with the 4-dollar iReward Chart
for iPhones and Androids.

Enter your kids' names and their weekly chores.

For every one accomplished, the child receives stars that can add up to
substantial rewards.
