What will a kitchen be without Tupperware? Not just does your Tupperware become part of your baby/toddler’s toy collection but when it comes to preparing your food for the next day you can’t go without it.
I am a perfectionist and like to plan everything beforehand. I do not leave something for the next morning. Waking up relaxed with my coffee on hand and getting ready for work and not running around the kitchen works best for me.
- Helpful tip #1: Plan ahead and do weekly shopping. Running to the shop after work can be avoided if you plan ahead.
- Helpful tip #2: Pack lunches the night before! I prefer to do this while I am busy with dinner but otherwise do it after the kids are in la-la land and you feel more relaxed.
- Helpful tip #3: Left-over dinner work’s great for the next day’s lunch and will save you extra time in the kitchen.
- Helpful tip #4: Invest in high quality containers that will last for a few years. Please do not reheat your child’s food in the plastic containers!!!
- Helpful tip #5: Buy containers for each person in your house, together with each one’s cool bag. You can make it fun and buy a different color container and cool bag for each person. Pink and purple for the girls and Blue and Green for the boys.
- Helpful tip #6: Do remember to mark/tag the containers with your child’s name or it will end up in a friend’s cupboard.
- Helpful tip #7: Look for containers that have dividers, or buy a few different smaller containers to put into a larger container to keep your snacks separate. You don’t want your sandwich covered in jelly, do you?
