Sometimes, as parents, we make packing school lunches WAY harder than it needs to be. But you don’t have to go over the top to get the job done! Check out our favorite lunch box hacks to make packing school lunches easier.
As stay at home moms, we have been thinking about all the ways our lives would get easier when our kids started school. Running errands alone, having cleaner houses, not being solely responsible for their education- we were SO looking forward to having the pressure taken off of us.
And then we realized- the pressure doesn’t leave us. It just gets different.
Case in point- the pressure to constantly come up with new school lunch ideas for our kids.
Whereas a PB&J and a few carrot sticks on a plate would work at home, we now have to send our kids out into the world with carefully packed lunches that will A. Be swiftly compared to their friends’ lunches and B. determine how good we look to the teachers and supervision staff.
But mamas, we’ve got to say- all this pressure we’re putting on ourselves? We don’t have to do that. You don’t have to constantly recreate the wheel. You don’t need to be innovative and imaginative every day.
The saying “Fed is Best” doesn’t go away just because your kids are older now.
We have found that the best way to take the pressure off of ourselves is to invest in some tools that make packing school lunches WAY easier. Sometimes a few lunch box hacks (and the right containers!) can make all the difference in how your child perceives their lunch- and expands the list of what you’re able to send, too.
So if you find yourself looking for new school lunch ideas for your kids, look no further. We’ve got the right tools to help you step up your game (without adding extra pressure to your life).
