Are you ready for the summer to come to an end? I know for me, I love the back to school excitement. Back to school means: schedules, routines, new clothes shopping, supply shopping, and the excitement of new classrooms and teachers! It’s a great time for new friends and new beginnings.
As a parent, it can sometimes be a struggle to get our families back into the routines of the school year. One thing that has really helped me with the craziness of back to school is staying organized with my kids lunches. Each evening after dinner we make our lunches for the next day. Making lunches each night has been a great time saver for our family during the busy morning rush to school.
My kids love Lunchables! Do your’s? This school year, I have decided to make my own version of some of our favorite Lunchable varieties. I am excited to share these easy lunches that you can add to your list of healthy choices for your kiddos this school year.
