Back to school

Making breakfast and healthy portable lunches for your kids is apart of a successful morning during the school year. Here are a few ideas to make the preparation simple and possibly dare I say fun.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Getting your children to et breakfast might not be so easy, but here are some ideas to spruce up the breakfast table and get your kids’ excited about the first meal of the day again.


Muffins are a great idea. You can make them before and they are portable. Here are a few scrumptious ideas:

Caramel Apple Muffins

Ham and Cheese Morning Muffins

Zucchini Spice Muffins

Cranberry Crunch Muffins

Mini Frittatas add a different spin on breakfast. Your kids will think you’ve transformed into a gourmet chef with this simple option.

Why not whips up a Breakfast Burrito after a night of Mexican for dinner? Take the taco fillers, onion, beans, cheese and add some eggs.

Making lunches for your child can save money and ensure they are eating healthy options. Consider creating lunch bins in your refrigerator and in your pantry for dry goods. This will make it very simple for you or your child to put items together for lunch or grab snacks after school.


Here are some ideas for the lunch/snack tubs:

Refrigerator Bin:


Cheese slices




Sliced fruit

Sliced veggies

Hard-boiled eggs

Cheese sticks

Mini yogurts

Mini containers of dips such as ranch, hummus etc.

Pantry Bin:



Trail Mix





Dried fruit

Raisin boxes

Cheese and cracker packages

These are just ideas to get your started! Add anything into the bins that your child loves. This will promote self-service and help you trim your morning routine.

What creative food ideas do you have for your children? I would love to hear from you.

Happy Organizing!
