Y’all I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t get it together with the lunch kit. I spend a ridiculous amount of time every night trying to pack my little boy’s lunch. I think about healthy food, lunch kit repeats (because heaven forbid he has the same thing in there two days in a row), sustainability. You name it, it’s going through my head!!! Which leads me to my next problem…….. spending 10 to 15 minutes every night packing a lunch was getting EXCESSIVE!! I mean I thought about it and all 5 nights I was totaling over an hour of lunch packing for the week. IT HAD TO STOP!
So, I decided to get myself in check and come up with a better plan. I had to take back my weeknights….especially…with…a…new…baby!
Here’s the new plan…. I call it lunch box 101… partly because I took myself back to the basic idea of lunch packing.
Sunday night is the new let’s get it all done night and Tyler (my kindergartner) helps.
- chips or popcorn
- dried fruit
- granola bar
- sometimes a special treat (cookie, jelly rope,etc,)
Step 5: Add lunch love notes to each bag for the week
