Pre-Packing Lunches

| Category: Meals

We started this school year by packing our lunches right after dinner. Each of us take a job, such as I make sandwiches, while one daughter packs the fruit and another packs the chips/pretzels. Then the next night, we trade jobs so it’s not so boring. This has been a great team building job and a fun way to pack lunches together in helping each other out, not to mention it cuts the time in half. This has saved us from stressful mornings of rushing around and throwing lunches together, which were usually less healthy.There are several times when our older daughter is gone and our 7 year old daughter has stepped up and packed her lunch for her (what a blessing to watch your kids serve one another!!) Also, we are much more likely to pack up and eat the leftovers since we’re doing it right after dinner. This has saved us from stressful mornings of rushing around and throwing lunches together, which were usually less healthy.
