You love it or hate it.
Packing school lunch. I will venture to say most hate it. Or maybe you start out the year motivated, but then two months in you are losing momentum.
I am here to help rescue you!
Here are my top three tips to help you always have something to pack in your kiddo’s lunch + a few of my son’s favorites!
Plan your meals with lunch in mind. Make things that your kiddo likes such as chicken fingers, meatballs, pasta, etc. that can easily be used in lunch.
Utilize the freezer. Double or triple anything you make and stick it in the freezer, so you always have something on hand. Yes, even pasta can be frozen in small 1 cup portions for an easy lunch.
Pack the night before. Getting yourself in that routine will help you make it a habit and save you time in the morning. I don’t know about you, but mornings are crazy at my house!
Make sure to follow along on Instagram as I share a weekly recap every Monday.
(psst – stay tuned as I am working hard on an extensive ebook that will house all my tips, links to products, 9 week’s worth of lunch box combos and checklist of ideas).
As promised, here are a few of my son’s favs so far!
