"School mornings can feel super rushed because there are so many things that need to get done before you walk out the door. Waking up, making beds, making sure homework is done and in backpacks, breakfast, and then there is lunch! We have had many years of packing school lunches and have gathered some of our best tips to be successful this year. The number one thing we have done that has made lunch packing successful is to have our kids pack their own lunches. Yep...pack.their.own. It is definitely hard to let go of things as a parent, especially when you know you could make a better food choice, or spread the peanut butter without it leaking over the edges and onto the counter. But the trade-offs are SO worth it! Your kids really can pack their own lunches and learn responsibility, organization and how to make a meal while doing it. Plus they are way more likely to eat what they pack than what you pack. This is how we have been successful in the lunch packing department."
