For us, back to school started last month, but I feel like it always takes at least a month for us to get back into the swing of things! Leighton was SO excited for 1st grade this year, to see who would be in her class, and even to see what teacher she would get. She has been talking about it nonstop!
Add all of that back to school excitement with busy season for my work gearing up and a new little family member (hello baby Grayson!), and it can definitely be a busy time of the year! That is why it is so important to do as much pre-planning as you can and get into a routine. And that definitely includes food! Food for breakfast for your littles, school lunch you pack, and then dinner after school pickup.
This school year, I’ve teamed up with Babbleboxx and Feeding America (the largest hunger relief organization in the United States) to share more about Hunger Action Month. The entire month of September is dedicated to driving awareness and inspiring action to help end hunger in America. Feeding America provides meals to 40 million people each year around the US. I’m helping them to spread more awareness about the problem with hunger across the nation and helping to advocate for legislation to protect people from going hungry.
Today, I wanted to share some of our family’s favorite quick and easy back to school meals!
- Veggies Made Great – Spinach Egg White Frittata & Double Chocolate Muffins – Vegetables are the first ingredient in these super yummy muffins. But the bonus here? They taste so good, your kids won’t even know they’re getting a super healthy dose of their veggies! We all love having the spinach egg white frittata for a quick breakfast on the go. The double chocolate muffins? They’re a fab quick (and healthy) dessert! Both of these muffins are the perfect choice for even the pickiest eaters! Click HERE to grab a coupon for $1 off any product!
- Mighty Sesame Tahini – This creamy, sesame seed paste is the perfect addition to all your favorite dishes from veggies and salads, to smoothies and hummus. The possibilities are endless with this paste and y’all will love experimenting with it as much as we do!
- King Arthur Flour – Buttermilk & Confetti Pancake Mix – Make any boring school day morning a celebration with confetti pancakes! These are so yummy and so much fun to make and eat. With just 5 grams of added sugar, it’s a breakfast you can feel good about giving your kiddos as they head off to school.
- Minute Rice – A total classic! Who doesn’t love traditional white rice? It’s a staple in our house. White rice pairs so easily with so many dishes and with Minute Rice it whips up is almost no time. They are perfectly portioned out so you get exactly the right amount of carbs for all-day energy without over-eating.
