MEAL PREPPING: LUNCH
Schools Starting and it’s time to start thinking about meal prepping for your kiddos’ lunches. We know that you’re busy and making lunches is not necessarily the most exciting of tasks, to help save time while also nourishing your family, my daughter Lola and I have put together some versatile meal prepping tips, rather than a list of recipes.

This seems like a no-brainer, having pre-cut fruits and veggies in the fridge makes prepping lunches so much quicker and easier, especially when I'm trying to get out the door with the kids in the morning. If it’s a super busy week, we recommend buying produce that doesn’t even need cutting! Berries, bananas, and grapes are great options.

Don't do it all yourself, involve the kiddos. I fill jar with healthy snack and dessert ideas, after lunch or dinner on Sundays, we each grab an idea and start creating. It's a great way to get kids involved in meal prep (little ones may need a bit more hands on when prepping) with grab and go treats for lunch boxes all week! Here are some of our favorites:
