Creating three school lunches daily can be a bit of a chore, especially when all three children have different tastes. I seriously have to come up with three different meals each day. ugh! Any amount of work I can do beforehand I will. When the idea of prep ahead peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and then freezing them came in my inbox from Santa Cruz Organic, I thought what a fabulous idea!
C’Man is my peanut butter and jelly kid. He is also my best eater and will eat a variety of foods, but his favorite is this simple sandwich using Santa Cruz Organic Peanut Butter and Fruit Spreads.
On Sunday evening I make a stack. Usually 4 or 5 (but you could make so many for all the kids!) and this will last him 2 weeks since he doesn’t bring this everyday.
I then place them in a freezer friendly container with a square of wax paper between each so they don’t stick together.
On the morning of school, I simply take out a frozen sandwich, place it in our reusable sandwich bag, and voila it will be thawed by lunch time. That took seconds!
See my last year’s post on creating an organic lunchbox – some great ideas.
Don’t forget the fruit (or veggie) as part of the meal. All my boys love the Santa Cruz Organic Cinnamon Apple Fruit Sauce. No sugar added and each cup provides 100% recommended daily intake of Vitamin C which is important this time of year. I just had a child home from having a cold. The germs are spreading as the cold weather is starting to set in.
