Back to school is in full swing and I am loving the fact that I can hear the thoughts in my head again and go to the gym during the day without somebody calling my name 15 times :)
What I do struggle with still sometimes is serving up nutritious lunches on the daily without stressing about having everything ready at any moment. It requires a lot of planning and making ahead but when you have a plan it becomes such a breeze - totally worth it.
So to help finding things that are not always the same boring standards that my babies will get tired of I started making a list of things that they love and that I can easily switch up.
You can download my list for free over on the right!
My tip: Tape it to the inside of your cabinet door so you can look at it when you need to in the mornings. I also use it for planning my grocery list and meal planning.
Here is where I buy our snacks:
Larabar (Cashew are our favorites)
Organic Thin Pretzels (these are delish)
Our favorite Lunch box is the OmieBox. It's amazing because it can hold a portion of hot lunch as well as 2-3 cold or dry snacks. It's super easy for my kids to use, open and close and it comes with a carrying handle. Having tried out a bunch of different lunchboxes in the past these have become my favorite - they are also SUPER sturdy and not as flimsy as many others. I really wish I had bought these first - I would have never had to try any other ones.
We use reusable stainless steel water bottles (these are my kiddos' favorites) because I try to have them stay away from juices during the school day.
Let's conquer kids lunches in our amazing momtastic ways with these helpers! Enjoy!
