Back-to-School Lunchables Shortage? Say What? A Mom of 4 Shares Easy Ways to Make Your Own Healthier Homemade Lunchables by Meredith Schneider
I have a fifth grader and an eighth grader that begged me to get them their own "Lunchable" containers for lunch. At first, I dreaded the idea. Another thing for me to wash! I told the kids I would get them containers for lunch as long as they helped with making their lunches every day. They agreed.
Not only do they help make them I also engage them when I go grocery shopping. I ask, "What ideas do you all have for lunches this week?" I have to be honest, I was never a Lunchable fan. I like knowing what I'm feeding my kids and having control of the ingredients.
Here are some tips if you want to make your own homemade Lunchables:
- Have kids pick out their own lunch containers or bento boxes. We are using bento boxes and love the little compartments.
- Engage kids with picking out what food to shop for.
- Have kids help prepare lunch either the night before or in the morning. Whatever works for your schedule. We like preparing them in the morning.
- When kids get home from school, have them empty containers and place them in the sink.
