Do your kids take their lunch from home each day for preschool, daycare or school? What types of things do you do to make the lunch packing routine run smoother in the morning and get the kids out the door with a healthy lunch option?
There is nothing worse than running around in the mornings, trying to get everything ready to go and trying to pack lunch for the kids too. In your rush, you end up throwing whatever you can grab or think of into their lunchbox, whether is’ healthy or not. The kids end up with a peanut butter sandwich and chips for the day and are super cranky when they get home because they are starving. They need healthy food to fuel those brains during the school day so they are at their best for learning.
We have a couple tips that you may find handy and make packing lunch a quick and easy process.
One of the best tips that I have found to work is to create a lunch making station. It doesn’t have to be fancy but have everything you use and need to make your lunch to go together in one location.
Have a bin in the fridge that is labeled and full of healthy lunch options. This works great for kids who are making their own lunch. They know which bin is for lunch and it already contains healthy options for them to pick from.
