School Lunch Menu

15 Sep

With my kids, if I don’t put the right entree in their lunch it ends up coming home for me to throw in the trash. For snacks, they’ll eat anything so at least we have that.

Sometimes I like to get the lunches made before they even get up in the morning just because it’s one less thing I have to try an accomplish while getting them ready to head out the door in the morning. The only problem is that if I haven’t remembered to ask them what they want the night before I run the risk of getting it wrong and wasting time, food and energy.

So I came up with a plan. The Mommyland School Lunch Menu.

In our pantry we have this super cool information center.

Our way of staying organized.

Under all that I have our lunch menu.

This little board is magnetic, so what I did was print out lunch options on my label writer using magnetic label tape. The options available will go on the far right and the boys can pick what they want as their entree each day. I make sure to take down any options that we don’t have so no one gets disappointed.

When I go into the pantry to get their lunches ready all I need to do is look on the menu board to see what they want.

Cameron’s selection goes on the top and Logan’s goes on the bottom.

That’s how I’m making lunch a little easier during the week. What do you do to make school lunches a snap?

How do you send in chicken nuggets? Does he just eat them cold?
