Create a Breakfast Lunch & Snack Rotation

Breakfast Lunch & Snack Roatation

So several years ago I was so tired of trying to decide what we were going to have for lunch. After a long morning of homeschooling [insert your longmoring here] I just didn’t want to waste what little mental power I had left on deciding what to make the kids for lunch.

This may seem kind of off topic but it’s not …did you know that Einstein wore the same outfit everyday? Why? He didn’t want to waste his brain cells thinking about what to wear. That makes a lot of sense to me. So even though I am in no danger of solving the theory of relativity I also don’t want to waste my time thinking about what to make for lunch.

So several years ago I made what I call a Breakfast, Lunch & Snack Rotation. It sits on my counter in a frame and when the ineveitable questions is poised…”What’s for lunch?” I always have an aswer immediately “I don’t know go check BLS Rotation”.

5 Steps to Making your Breakfast Lunch & Snack Rotation

You should already have your forms packet from week 1. Now is the time to pull that bad boy out.

  1. Go ahead and write down at least 7 lunches & breakfasts that your family enjoys.
  2. List some snacks that your family enjoys. Our snacks are fruit, string cheese, cheese and crackers, yogurt,popcorn & peanut butter roll ups. I just repeated a snack or two to make sure each day has a nice healthy snack.
  3. Then look at your schedule and decide which lunch is appropriate for which day according to that day’s activities. For instance on bi weekly Fridays we have co-op and eat there. So on Fridays we have pre made burritos, prepackaged fruit, chips/veggies and a juice box because it can be quickly packed up and thrown in the cooler.
  4. take out a sheet of paper and write down everything  you need to purchase to make these wonderful lunches that your family likes.
  5. Type it up and frame your new time and sanity saving meal rotation.

But what if we get sick of the meals? Then you can replace a meal or two to freshen it up. But if you are the one who is sick of the meal then I advise you to eat something else and keep the kids on their schedule.
