Twas the week before Back To School and tis the week to get organised. I know it’s the final week to get the uniforms, schools shoes and stationery organised, but here’s my tip:
Take action on these 3 Back To School Kitchen To Do’s, and you’ll make the first week back to school a whole lot more organised.
1. Clean Out and Tidy Up
During the school term, there’s a few places in the kitchen you’re likely to go to daily. If they are organised and tidy, then your life is so much easier.
- lunchbox and plastics cupboard sorted
- the fridge
- the freezer
- the pantry
2. Stock the fridge with fruit & veg
Make it as easy as possible to pack real food every day for lunchboxes by stocking the fridge. Some great lunchbox real food snacks are:
- carrot sticks
- celery sticks
- cucumber rounds or baby cukes
- cherry tomatoes
- fruit – either cut or whole
Save yourself some time and wash your fruit and vegetables before you load them into the fridge.
3. Batch cook a couple of snacks
Choose 2 simple snack recipes and either make them yourself or get your kids in the kitchen to help. Indrani chose to make Anzac Biscuits and Chocolate Protein Bomb Bliss Balls. Both are now in the freezer ready for week 1 of school.
There you have it. 3 Back To School Kitchen To Do’s that will help make your school mornings easier.
