Free Printable School Lunch Box Meal Planner

Isn’t it hard to come up with new school lunch ideas? I’m excited to share a free printable school lunch box planner to help you out! Because our school starts soon, meant it was time to start think about school lunch box ideas. I began writing a bunch of ideas down. Instead of packing the same school lunch each week, I plan to get a little more creative this year. I’ve made super creative school lunches like these Powerpuff Girls Sandwiches, but there is no way I can do that everyday!

To help with planning ahead for fun but simple school lunches, I designed a free printable lunch box meal planner – basically a weekly calendar to help parents get organized. I also put together a free printable list with 85 school lunch items to add to your kid’s lunch boxes.

I hope these school lunch box ideas will help you get organized for the school year with some new and healthier lunches for your kids!

Both of my kids are very picky, so I do my best to find healthy foods to pack for their lunch. My daughter is pretty easy and loves when I add cute notes or draw on her food with edible markers.

Finding creative school lunch ideas for my middle school aged son, who is the most picky, is really challenging. Here are a few school lunch ideas I have packed for him. They might not be the healthiest ideas around, but it’s a start to get him to try SOME healthy things.

Make your own pizza bagels and writing notes on napkins is always fun! He is now in high school and I still make this for his lunch sometimes. Bagels are great for school lunch, because they fill up the always hungry boys and don’t get soggy like bread. We love to use these –> Easy Lunch Boxes!

Get Ready for Grocery Delivery to Change Your Life

If I told you I could save you…

  1. Time
  2. Money
  3. Tremendous Mental Anguish

Would you be interested in having a chat? Okay, well pull up a chair because I have SOME KNOWLEDGE TO DROP ON YOU.

I’m sorry for the shouty caps, but this was pretty big for me. Because I pride myself on efficiency and planning. I’m a meal planner, a to-do list maker, and when the occasion calls for it, I can bust out a color-coded spreadsheet to take the planning/list making to the next level. So when something comes along that makes my life SO MUCH EASIER, I want to shout it from the rooftops.

Walmart Online Grocery Pickup. 

I know. I know. You’ve probably heard of it. You’ve probably seen the signs at your friendly neighborhood Walmart. I had too. But I’d never tried it.

But then it occurred to me…I could be doing things with my time that are FAR more useful…working, working out, shuttling kids around….the idea that I could pick up my groceries on the way home from any number of activities was a big AH-HA moment for me.

And that revelation was BURNED INTO MY BRAIN when I picked up my groceries with Walmart Online Grocery Pickup and realized that my weekly grocery shopping just took 3 minutes.

THREE MINUTES.

That’s how long, from the moment I pulled up in the pickup area to exiting the parking lot, it took to get my groceries.

Let that sink in.

Everything else was the same. I planned my meals, made my list (more on that in a minute), made the drive to and from Walmart—but I didn’t even need to get out of my car. Or shop with kids.

Look. I love my kids. So much. SO MUCH.

But grocery shopping with them…not so much. I mean, I’ve seen parents cruising through the store with several mild-mannered kids in tow. Everyone shuffling along, quietly and calmly.

Parents of these children please teach me your ways, because my kids are under the impression that grocery store aisles are long corridors that are begging for their interpretive dance performances. That the produce section is where they should wrestle. That the checkout line is the spot for asking for candy. (The answer is always no…and yet…they still ask.)

Don’t even get me started on taking kids to the grocery store when potty training…I didn’t even know I could run that fast while carrying a kid. Or that I could abandon a cart and come back to it later.

Think how nice it would be to pick up your groceries after the gym, or on the way home from work, or to be able to load up on supplies when you’ve got a houseful of sick kiddos without needing to get out of the car.

THE APP IS MY FAVORITE.

Imagine my delight when, upon feeding my dog, I realized I was running low on dog food and that I could simply add it to my Walmart Grocery app cart, and then some wonderful person would deliver it to the back of my car!

Have you ever tried to shimmy a 36lb bag of dog food onto the bottom of a grocery cart? The cart wants to roll away. It does. It’s science. And your kids will be no help during this bent-over-deadlift saga.

Here’s how to get started!

And if you get started now, use the promo code WOWFRESH for $10 off your first order.

  1. Go to Walmart.com 
  2. Pick your store.
  3. Set up your profile. (Easy.)
  4. Download the app at the same time.
  5. Start shopping.

Use the app for when you’re on the go and need to add something to your cart. Not that asking my kid to write it down on a napkin while I’m driving hasn’t been SUPER effective. (It’s hasn’t.)

You can add things to your cart over several days if you want and then select your delivery date and time frame.

You will get a message letting you know what your deadline is for making changes.

After I had placed my order, I had shifted gears and began working on some plans for my son’s upcoming birthday—he’d been very specific about wanting a Minecraft Lego set, so I clicked over to Amazon, to order a set…but then it occurred to me. Maybe Walmart had the same set? At the same great price? OF COURSE THEY DID.

Since I was still within my ample “edit” window on my order, I was able to easily update the order and include this Lego set.

I selected “9:00 AM-10:00 AM” for my pick up time and received and email and notification on my phone that my order was ready for pick up at 8:53 AM.

I was prompted to “Check In” and let them know when I was coming so they would be ready when I arrived.

When I pulled up, a lovely young lady came to my car, confirmed my name and loaded my car.

It was literally the easiest thing I’ve ever done.

The service and app will learn your favorite and you can manually “heart” certain items so you can create your own favorites list…VERY HANDY, in my opinion. Because I’m a creature of habit and once I find the best gluten free pancake mix, there is no more experimenting.

And of course the prices were amazing—especially on the gluten free and organic items that I’m accustomed to paying more for at other retailers.

Hashtag: WINNING.

Try it for yourself and get $10 off with the promo code WOWFRESH (for first time users only.) You’ll be SO HAPPY you did!

Now start thinking how you’re going to spend that time you’re going to save…
