To help you and your family begin another school season with greater health and energy I have four Lunchbox ideas and a bunch of recipes to share with you today.

Mealtimes tend to be less structured and more casual during the summer months. So when school resumes in the fall, it’s back to planning and packing healthy lunches for your kiddies, making sure they also have plenty of after school snacks options and that as a family you sit down and enjoy at least one meal together in the evenings.

So as you begin planning meals for the family, remember you need to eat too! To keep up with the demands on your time and energy you need to eat healthy and frequently.

One of the biggest mistakes I see so many busy mom’s’ make is they forgot to eat. Or spend so much time and energy planning meals and snacks for the kids that they end up grabbing the quickest, and most convenient thing to fuel themselves; often times these choices aren’t the most healthiest, leaving them feeling drained and run down by the end of the day.

Planning healthy meals and snacks for both you and the family will require some pre-planning, but the investment of time will be worth the return….a happy, healthy and more energetic you!

To help with back-to-school healthy lunch box planning, here are four lunch-box meal plans your kiddies will LOVE. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to pack extras for you too! These lunch box meals ideas are not only “Kid Approved” they are “Mom & Dad Approved” too.
