Prepping for Back to School

Each year summer seems to fly by more quickly! With school supplies stocking the store shelves, it seems like school is right around the corner. This year we are going to be busier than ever. Each of my kids will have differing school schedules and afternoon activities and I want to be able to keep them well-fed on the go. Luckily my kids are generally good, healthy eaters and enjoy a variety of foods in their diet so I enjoy pre-packing homemade easy lunches and snack packs for the week ahead!

Homemade Easy Lunches and Snack Packs With Tyson Foods

Tyson® has a wide variety of products that are perfect for incorporating into these snack packs for breakfast, lunch or snacks. I always pick them up when I’m shopping at Mariano’s, which is my go-to for grocery shopping. Some of my favorites include Hillshire Farm® Lunch Meat, Tyson® Fun Nuggets and Chicken Nuggets, State Fair® Corn Dogs, and Jimmy Dean® Frozen Breakfasts. I combine these fun and hearty lunch and snack solution with fresh fruit and veggies, protein packed trail mix and pretzels or chips for a crunchy treat. It’s an easy to make ahead solution that my kids absolutely love!

Prep, Pack and Go!

I always pack these homemade easy lunches and snack packs in reusable plastic containers and store them in the fridge. That way the kids can grab them on the go or I can throw them in my bag and hand them out in the car. They’re also great for field trips or even just a quick excursion to the park. I know I’m not the only mom who’s kids are suddenly starving as soon as we leave the house!

Back to School Meal Planning

These Tyson products are also great for incorporating into back to school meal planning! My kids are obsessed with their fun nuggets and Hillshire Farm lunch meat is our favorite for sandwiches. I love that they can be prepared ahead of time. My oldest loves to help in the kitchen so he’s always happy when he can get his own lunch ready and Tyson makes this easy!
