School is starting soon and getting back into a routine is hard. Therefore, I wanted to share with you my Easy Back to School Lunch Prep idea.
Let me first explain that as much as I would love to make those cute bento box lunches…. you know the ones with the cute cut out sandwiches in the shape of my kids favorite characters. However, I just don’t have time for that. Mornings and me don’t get along too well. Therefore a weekly lunch prep is a lifesaver. After I wake up the kids, I have them shower and dress. Once they are done they go downstairs, have breakfast and are responsible for getting their own lunch together.
Our lunches are simple. Most of the time it’s sandwiches. Other times I will switch it up and send a hot Thermos lunch instead. But here’s how it looks: (Hover over the picture and Pin this to your pinterest board)
This weeks lunch meal prep included:
- Fruit cups
- Fruit pouches
- Capri Suns
- Water Bottles
- Rice Kripie Treats
- Fruit Snacks
- Cheese Sticks
- Carrots Stick (Divided them into snack bags)
- Sandwiches (The only thing I had to make)
I clearly explain what they can have. For example one fruit, one treat, one drink etc.. And I’ll change it every week.
I do our lunch prep on Sunday and then my job is done. I let my kids “make” their own lunch for the rest of the week.
Pretty simple eh? It only takes me about 10 minutes to get all this together and it really is an easy lunch prep and perfect for back to school!
