School Lunch Planner
If the end of last school year taught me anything, I taught me to plan our meals. Meats were out of stock, I was ordering groceries online and in order to not waste food or to have enough of what we like, I had to plan our meals. It is not that I didn’t plan before, but I was able to spread our food out and use it for the best purpose. I felt like a pioneer woman on a home school prairie.
I am taking that meal planning a step further as we head back to school with a weekly lunchbox planner. This will allow me to assign food to days before it goes bad, for me to pack non perishable food ahead and for me to use all the foods we have before opening something new.
School Meal Planning List
Included in our School Lunch Planner are…
- Pantry Inventory List
- Shopping List
- Prepping List
- Notes List
Each day is also listed Monday to Friday and includes what to pack for snacks and lunch.
Lunch Box Ideas for Kids
I wanted to supply you with a list of healthy lunch box kids idea. As the year goes on, creativity goes out the door. Below are ideas you can add inside your child’s lunch.
- Sports Drink
- Hard Boiled Egg
- Tuna/Chicken Salad
- Peanut Butter
- Cheese Stick
- Cottage Cheese
- Drinkable Yougurt
- Rice Cakes
- Graham Crackers
- Vegetable Chips
- Fruit Leather
- Granola Bar
- Trail Mix
Note: Some schools only allow peanut free lunches. This would eliminate some weekly lunchbox ideas.

How to Print School Documents at Staples

How to Store Lunch Box Notes
I have collected lunch box notes for years. With five kids, I hate reprinting new notes every year. To preserve these notes, I laminate my printables.
I have owned Scotch™ Thermal Laminator for ten years and it is still going strong.
