I make my kids’ school lunches daily, and it’s not uncommon for me to be up until 11 p.m. or later making my kids’ meals for the next school day. But I just saw some great tips by online that will make packing my kids’ school lunches a breeze!
To pack lunches quickly and easily, all I need to do is place a protein (yogurt or cheese, hummus, or cubes of chicken, etc.), fruit, and veggies that are washed and ready to go in small containers for my fridge. I also can assemble small snack containers (with pretzels, Goldfish, etc.) that my kids can choose. In the morning, all they need to do is choose a protein, a fruit and/or veggie, a snack, a water bottle, and they are ready to go!
Easy School Lunches
What I like about this system is that it can help clear my evening schedule so I can spend more time with my husband and kids. In the past, I found that while my kids and husband are spending time together at night, I am often cleaning up after dinner, loading the dishwasher and making and packing lunches! With this system, I don’t have to spend my nights preparing my kids’ school lunches.

Thanks for stopping by, Tisha. I love your sun tips — I really need to remember to always wear sunscreen, and I have to get some good sun-protective clothing. (Especially since I am very fair and can burn in like 10 minutes!)
