Tuesday's Tip - School Lunches, Part 2

Last week's Tuesday's Tip was about making several weeks worth of sandwiches for kid's lunches and freezing them.  This week involves the genius of the snack basket/drawer.  Now, making school lunches takes about 8 seconds each morning.  Just my style ...

Does the bottom half of the chip bag last forever because no one wants to eat the crumbs?  Simple solution - put them in baggies, perfect for the snack basket.   

  the first thing I do when I get home from the grocery store with grapes, strawberries or oranges:  wash and package them, ready for snacks/lunches.

Do you have any school lunch tricks?  My kids don't have the option of heating up their food and I can't imagine how boring turkey/cheese and PB&J's everyday would be, but they don't seem to mind ...

  1. you're amazeballs. since my kiddos are vegetarians (at home anyway) they eat PBJs every.single.day. Can you imagine?!?!?!? hurl. They even ask for them on the weekends. Crazeballs. 

  2. Scott likes the same thing daily too. My tip is to let your kid make their own. :). It takes some time but Scott makes his own most days. I love your idea of organizing snacks. How long do your oranges and stuff last once you cut them? I try to keep mine where they last longer. Plus, I make it miserable for dishwashing time but we use tupperware storage for sandwich, yogurt, etc. I like that I'm not buying or throwing away 60 baggies a month per child.

    Would love to hear others feedback...

  3. If you don't have room in your refrigerator we recommend converting a cooler into the kids snack station http://bit.ly/1KBbJK1

  4. School lunches are great boost for stimulating pupils' brain.
