There is no running away from it summer vacation is coming, I know many of my friends back east have already had their school year end and our last day is June 23. Many moms are facing the same oh no moment, lunches over the summer. This isn’t my first rodeo with the kids and summer vacation, one thing I have realized over the years they are always hungry nonstop it seems like! I live on a budget and summer vacation is something I have to budget for since the expense is higher than what they eat at school.
Sam’s Club is one of my budget savers being able to buy in bulk and also a huge time saver as well for me. Tyson chicken is one of my favorite brands for quick and easy lunches during the summer time. It’s one of those foods that all three kids will eat and not complain about! As a mom, I am sure you can relate to this being able to find something that makes all three kids happy!! I picked up Tyson Chicken Nuggets and Tyson® Chicken Patties.
How To Survive Summer Time Kid Lunches:
Meal Plan Lunches: Just like at school the kids love to know what is going to be for lunch that day. Plus, let’s face it, they ask the second breakfast is over what’s for lunch, and it also helps to cut back on the negotiating that seems to happen more during the summer about meals.
Get The Kids Involved: When the kids are involved in the planning and making the meal, they also take pride in what they are doing and eat the meal as well. With my kids getting older, I have started to let them take the lead on being able to make their lunch and supervise them. Teaching them kitchen skills at a young age is important to help them.
Fruits And Veggies: This is something that takes getting used to for me is buying, even more, fruits and veggies to put on their plates with their lunches! I have to say they love picking up the fresh fruit at the farm stand by our house, plus the standard can of green beans go well with anything for them too. I love that they love to eat these so continuing to help them eat balanced meals is important.
Decorate and Assign Cups: My kids can go through cups like crazy. I have found having an assigned cup cuts back on my dishes to be washed. Having a way to quickly identify who’s cup is who makes it so much easier! Plus less arguing over who picked out what color of a cup, plus you can’t go wrong with stickers right?? Bella loved being able to decorate a cup, she picked Courage for her Wonder Woman sticker.
Ever feel like we are Wonder Woman at times as moms? A lot falls on us as moms in life and it can be a lot of work!! We loved using the stickers to mark our cups!! You can catch Wonder Woman, it just came out June 2 to theaters!!
