The Ten-Day Back-to-School Lunch Meal Plan

I am a meal planner and usually know by Sunday which five meals my family will be eating for the remainder of the workweek. I’ve extended this practice to school lunches, mostly so I don’t forget to purchase the food required for the midday meal, (which I frequently used to do before I made a list of what the kids were going to pack each day).

Although it takes a few extra minutes on the weekend to organize my grocery lists, I like not having to think about what to make each morning. I just refer to my plan each morning, prep the food required, and remain stress-free in the process.

Here’s a look at the ten-day back-to-school lunch plan I’ve put together for my youngest son. We have plenty of excellent packable recipes on the site, and I tend to forget how much we enjoyed them in the past. So, grab your pen and paper and take note, because whether they’re going to be at school or home, your kids are going to need some lunches!
