Making Time for Breakfast and Lunch

Waking up for school in the morning isn’t usually easy and the last thing you feel like doing is getting up even earlier to make yourself breakfast and pack a lunch for school. If you’re buying both of those meals every day, it can get pretty expensive.

You probably already know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It helps you wake up, gets your brain working earlier in the day, gives you energy and helps curb your lunch appetite. Breakfast doesn’t have to be a three-course meal, either—there are plenty of quick, healthy options available. On your next grocery trip, think about foods that are easy to make and eat in the morning, such as instant oatmeal and packaged fruit cups. The less prep time you have to spend, the more likely you are to actually eat in the morning.

Save Yourself Time in the Morning

Take a couple minutes before you go to sleep and pack your lunch for tomorrow. There are plenty of things you can pack that will stay good overnight, such as chips, whole pieces of fruit and similar snacks. Just make it a part of your nightly routine and you’ll get a few more minutes of precious sleep in the morning.

Customize Your Lunch During Lunchtime or Buy Pre-Packaged Food

Instead of cutting up fruits and vegetables in the morning, buy them pre-packaged so you can just grab them on your way out. Buy single-serving condiment packets—just quickly pack the sandwich plain and customize it as you sit down to eat. If you like salads instead, find ready-made packs and create single-serving toppings by placing them in sandwich bags; throw in a small packet of dressing and you’re good to go!
