Are you in back-to-school mode?
Oh man, am I ever. This year my oldest daughter is starting Pre-K and my two year old is starting a twice a week morning program (AKA mommy’s sanity/hot coffee time).
This means I will be packing lunches like it’s my job – oh wait, I suppose it pretty much is 🙂
As a full-time stay at home mom of two, I have many daily goals, including, but not limited to:
- Stick to a consistent daily routine
- Spend quality time with each child
- Stay organized to avoid going crazy
Part of staying organized means my plans have plans.
And yes, this has always been my personality, even before kids. So maybe this doesn’t sound like you. Maybe your plans are not written out in various To Do lists or organized planners.
Friend, it takes a village to make it through these little years.
Starting preschool or daycare is a new chapter or “season” of life for most of us and naturally, it comes with many challenges:
- Getting your toddler out of the house on time
- Packing nutritious lunches (every day!)
- Finding time to connect with your toddler when they’re home from school
And top of all of this, we’ve still got laundry to fold, dishes to clean, and dogs to walk. The mental load is real.
Let me help you take one thing off your plate.
Our Ultimate Preschool Lunchbox Planning Kit takes all the guesswork out of coming up with lunch ideas for daycare or preschool.
What should I pack my toddler for preschool or daycare?
You could scroll through Pinterest or Instagram for hours looking for ideas and end up with just that – tons of ideas – but no plan for how to organize or implement them.
This Planning Kit helps even the most unorganized mom plan lunches like a pro.
Our Printable Bento Box Cheat Sheet (included in the kit) provides you with tons of ideas to mix-and-match for easy lunch ideas throughout the week.
“But what about my picky toddler? How do I pack their lunch? Will this kit work for me?”
Yes, yes, and yes.
Mama, packing lunch for your picky preschooler does NOT have to be complicated. Inside the Planning Kit, I’m sharing my secret strategy for exposing toddlers to new foods, previously disliked foods, plus what to do with toddlers who will only eat certain foods, all without sabotaging their entire lunch.
Packing lunch for your picky eater is easier than you think.
