Meal Maker Challenge: Reader Submitted Tip

August 14, 2010

The following tip was submitted from reader Rayven.

“We pack our lunches and snacks instead of purchasing them from school. Sunday is our preparedness day, as we bake cookies and other treats to last the week (well, sometimes they get gobbled up early; we’ve learned to hide things from Daddy!) We also pre-wash, peel, and cut up veggies and put them into sandwich baggies for the week, such as carrots and celery. For dip, we bought Tupperware Smidgets (small containers) off eBay that work perfectly. Juice boxes are stored in the freezer to keep lunch (and juice) cool until lunchtime everyday.

We also take a few minutes on Sunday to menu plan our dinners and after school snacks. This helps tremendously as once school gets back in session, it gets hectic – FAST!”

Reading this makes me happy that my kids (all 3) are too little for school. : ) I don’t know that I’d ever be that organized!
