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!

Tip #1

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.


Tip #2

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. 


Tip #3

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!
