It’s back-to-school time, so take this week to organize your lunch packing area of your kitchen. By doing this now you will be ready on that first day of school.
Day 1. Clear a cupboard or shelf so things can be tucked away while not in use.
Day 2. Check your inventory of plastic bags and containers. Do you need to resupply before school starts.
Day 3. Go shopping with your kids to find that “perfect” lunch box.
Day 4. Do you have a plan? Take the guess-work our of deciding what is going into your child’s lunchbox by writing up a “menu” of sorts. Ask your kids what they would like.
Day 5. Give responsibility to your children. Make it their job to clean out their lunch boxes after school and put them away.
