Back to Basics Part 2


We are 2-4 weeks into school… Have you gotten the swing of things and back to a good routine? If you are struggling with lunches. Here are 5 more days of lunch ideas for kids that pack meals from home, including lunches they can make themselves or you can make ahead. Many of these lunch items are easy to make or can be bought at Costco with very easy to no assembly required. Costco is one of the favorite places for members of our School Lunch Prep Facebook group to shop. A bonus Costco list is posted below.
