Packed lunches might be over for the time being, but mealtime definitely is not. Every parent wants their child to have a well-balanced meal during the day and with help from the deli, you can make lunch a hit.
Your local grocer has a large, fresh selection of Deli Meats ready to help you get the week started. Our recipe for the classic Chicken Club is a sure favorite. Just combine Chicken Lunchmeat, bacon, and Colby jack cheese. Pair this sandwich with some fruit or veggies for a well-balanced lunch!
Here are some other tips to keep in mind while feeding the fam in your home.
Prepare as much of the lunch as possible the night before – like portions of fruits and veggies. This will make your mornings run a little more smoothly in general. You can even set aside time a day or two each week to pre-portion several helpings to have on hand throughout the week.
Form an assembly line with your kids for quicker prep. Even the little ones can help here. Assign everyone to an item and pass the containers down the line. You can prep everything separately or mix and match for ready-made meals to grab and eat during the day.
Freeze baked goods ahead of time, then put a frozen muffins or cookies out in the morning and it will be thawed by lunchtime! This is a great way to keep baked goods on hand without them quickly spoiling and going to waste.
We hope these quick and easy tips are helpful as you tackle the challenge of lunches for everyone at home!
