BTS Tips for a Healthy Lunchtime
Don’t just get back to school, get Back to You! Both Mom Made Foods and Lunchskins are committed to making Back to School easy, healthy, and eco-friendly.
With Back to School on the horizon, we know you’re already experiencing sleepless nights over packing lunches. Lunchbox and snack-bag woes abound at this time of year… but fear not! Lunchskins and Mom Made Foods are here with our parent-approved, super simple tips to avoid the packed lunch blues all year long.
Go Reusable & Eco-Chic
This Back to School season, go eco-chic! Kiss disposable plastic good-bye forever by investing in stylish reusable bags, bottles, cutlery, and containers. In just one shopping trip, you’ll make a difference… and give your grocery bill a well-deserved break!
Plan (and Pack) Ahead
Who else has nearly gotten frostbite from 7:30 a.m., “what do I pack?” refrigerator exposure? Keep the cold at bay by planning and packing ahead the night (or even the week) before. Keep it simple by planning on leftovers when cooking and put those reusable containers to work to store leftovers (both frozen and fridge-worthy) and cut up fruits or veggies for grab-and-go lunch and snack packs.
Sick of the same old PB&J day after day? Pinterest has you covered with thousands of bento box, kabob, and deconstructed sandwich inspirations to satisfy your midday cravings. Follow your favorite food, mom, and family blogs on Instagram for creative ideas and easy recipes to keep the kids fed and your sanity in check! And don't forget - you can find us at @mommadefoods and @lunchskins on Instagram and Pinterest for mommy inspiration.
Get the Kids Involved
Nothing builds confidence and independence in kids than encouraging them to get involved in day-to-day tasks. Make packing lunch and snack part of their daily routine by stocking up on family-friendly, good-for-you favorites to create a “lunch packing station” on your kitchen counter. Your kids will develop healthy habits for life… and save you the headache of last-minute sandwich-making.
