1. Get a Meal Prep Container Set

You’re going to – at least – need a container set that lasts your kids for the school week coming up. There are 5 days in the week – you do the math!

2. Make a Weekly Meal Prep Schedule – Get Innovative

When meal prepping, you must use perishable ingredients for the early days and leave ‘stay fresh’ options for later in the week.

Alternatively, meal preppers can make a family-sized dish that’s able to stay fresh throughout the week – such as Lasagna. The leftovers of these meals can be used for meal prep as well until finished…but where’s the fun in that?

If you love food as much as we do, put yourself up to the challenge!
