Quick Tips for Better Sack Lunches

Here are Quick Tips for Better Sack Lunches. With Back-to-School Season upon us I thought I would share with you several quick tips for making better sack lunches.  We pack lunches 5 days a week at our house.  Hopefully these tips will help you too!

Quick Tips for Better Sack Lunches:

  1. Get into a routine of planning and packing your lunch the night before. Sandwiches are quick and easy to put together and can even be frozen. We love this Lunchbox Tip – Freeze PBJ’s to save time and money – DIY Uncrustables
  2. Freeze a smoothie. It can serve as both an ice pack and a refreshing drink come lunchtime!
  3. Use a thermos to include soup or chicken nuggets. I often place a corn dog in a thermos. Either mini nuggets or remove the stick.  You can place a plain hot dog in hot water for your kids to remove at lunchtime.
  4. Include a dessert as a reward for your children after they eat their meal or on Friday’s.
  5. Pack foods from all the food groups – diversify your kid’s meals.
  6. DIY Lunchbox Icepacks – this is a great way to save money!

Here is a sample Menu:

Monday – Corn Dog, Grapes, Pretzels, Baby Carrots

Tuesday – Chicken Nuggets, Apple Slices, Broccoli with Ranch

Wednesday – Turkey Sandwich Combo served with grapes, baby carrots and chocolate chip cookie

Thursday – SpaghettiOs, Strawberries and Biscuit or Crackers

Friday – Apple Slices, Ants on a log, Graham Crackers
