There is nothing like waking up in a panic thinking you haven’t packed lunches yet, let alone know what you are going to pack. Your kiddos deserve the best from you when it comes to their health, and believe me their tummy’s will thank you. Make a menu at the beginning of the week, this way when you go grocery shopping you will know what you are going to get. Also plan your lunches to what you are making for dinner that week. Try to reinvent leftovers to cut down costs. Cooking for My Kids says: “I make a menu for each week. When the boys get home, I clean their lunch container for the day and then immediately re-pack it for the next day. That way, the next morning, I just have to get out of the refrigerator and put it in their lunch boxes with a little note.”
When you do the above planning ahead of time, you can think better, allowing yourself to choose healthy foods for your loves. It is important to offer healthy lunches and snacks to your children, even those picky ones that only eat chicken nuggets, I have one of those. It can be so frustrating trying to get her to eat. I have decided it’s not my job to make her eat, but to offer healthy and nutritious foods for her when she decides to try them.
