How To Be a Lunchtime Hero to Your Kids From Preschool through High School

Posted on 08-13-2016 | Ben Fernandes

The night before the first day can be a very exciting time, but with the excitement can come a little bit of anxiety, for both kids and parents. To help ease the stress and aid your student in feeling better prepared for their first day, here are a few suggestions to keep things in order.

  1. Have their outfit picked out and set out
  2. Backpack and supplies by the door
  3. Lunch box packed
  4. Breakfast pre-prepped
  5. Be sure that your child knows their teacher’s name and room #
  6. Camera by the door with charged batteries and SD card
  7. Know and go over the transportation plan
  8. Set an alarm to allow time for first day pictures and unforeseen set backs
  9. Get to bed EARLY

Did #3 trip you up or did you breeze right on by with an assumption that a PB&J sandwich with a Ziploc of chips, Oreos, baby carrots and a drink box would suffice? If you felt comfortable with the classic stand-by, chances are high that a quick poll would likely get you ousted as lunch-packer, due to a lack of imagination. But, don’t fret. At Kids R Kids Learning Academy of Circa/Fishhawk, we are always looking for ways to help and make your lives easier. Encouraging a healthy diet is one of the most important things we can do for our kiddos, but eating healthy doesn’t come easily. It requires thought, planning and effort. Thanks to the imaginative genius of fellow Pinterest moms and dads, we have some fantastic and wildly creative lunch ideas that will turn you from Clarice (or Clark) Kent into Superparent! Here are a few of our favorites:

If you have kiddos that don’t like sandwiches, or perhaps they are just ready for a change… or 100. Here is a resource that offers enough options to carry you through almost the entire school year without an exact repeat. Talk about keeping things interesting!

Maybe you have several children, or your kids enjoy participating in the process . Here is a link that offers solutions to allow for some independence without a worry that they will pack 4 fruit cups or bags of cookies without accountability. Hooray for kitchen help!

Of course we all want our kids to eat healthier, but with a growing number of allergies and food sensitivities, some parents have a more challenging time finding healthy options that meet the individual needs of their children. This resource offers up over 125 truly healthy lunch options to keep things interesting and delicious. Win-Win!
