Empowering moms for success – while making lunches kid’s will eat.

I’ve received a lot of tips, tricks and ideas over the years, regarding school lunches and thought I’d share them with you. Too often, I was the ill-prepared mom who couldn’t find 2 pieces of bread the morning of, to make a simple sandwich.
Providing a variety of healthy meals your kids will actually eat – is not easy. At the beginning of the week, the kids and I collaborate on menu ideas: criteria is based on healthy, tasty, do-able lunches.
I typically marinade and grill all my chicken on Sunday afternoon, and place them in sealed containers. I’ll go ahead and cut part of the chicken into stripes or nuggets, for the kids lunches and set them aside in different zip locks, for the week.
I wash all the fruit and divide them into zip lock bags also. I do the same with cookies / crackers – making the vanilla wafers with peanut butter, cutting the cheese, and dividing them into enough zip locks to handle 4 kids for the week.
I also make lunches for the little ones who stay at home. This way, when they’re hungry, they just go pick up their lunch box out of the fridge and no one misses a beat. If we’re running errands, I just grab their lunches and they can eat on the way.
After school, my older kids read the menu and grab the pre-made lunches already divided up – and place them in their lunch box.
It’s not easy being a mom. Let’s stick together girls. I’d love to hear your ideas.
Here’s to empowering moms for success – and lunches kid’s will eat. : )
