A blog post by Massel chef Elizabeth Schuler
Okay, I will admit it. I really look forward to the first day of school after a long summer. I am ready, my kid is ready, and we both need more structure in our days. One thing I am not looking forward to though, is packing lunches everyday. At least I know, however, that my son never has to worry about his food allergies when I make his lunch from home. I decided to share some surefire tips to help relieve the daily lunch making grind!
First of all, I suggest investing in an eco-friendly lunchbox. Not to mention, most schools are trying to eliminate the use of unsustainable resources in their lunchrooms. These reusable lunch boxes come in a variety of sizes, colors and shapes that will fit your child’s personality, all while protecting the earth. My son loves not having to stand in a long line for hot lunch before he eats!
Secondly, I recommend creating a plan and packing the night before the school day:
My third tip is to utilize a thermos. Hot, steamy soups are a satisfying and healthy lunch. Fortunately, Massel makes it easy to prep them for your kids:
I hope your lunch making routine feels energized with these tools to pack healthy lunches, happily and conveniently. Having Massel in the pantry is the perfect start!
