Back to school can be pretty hectic and let’s face it, figuring out what to make for your kids lunch in the morning while you’re trying to get them out the door is the last thing you want to do! This super easy and fun Meal Planner is just what you need to help you plan ahead and make those crazy mornings a little easier.

Plus, it’s interactive so the kids can help plan their own lunches too!

– Medium size piece of white foam-core
– Coloured paper
– A laminator (optional)
– Black Sharpies
– VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Dots


Draw a line on your foam-core about 2/3rds from the left side. The left side will be your Meal Plan and the right will be your options. Add the days of the week in a column under your Meal Plan. Then, in different colours add Lunch, Snack and Fruit in a row across the top.


Laminate and use VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Fasteners to adhere everything to the board. I recommend sticking the loop side to your signs and the hook side to the board for a cleaner look!

Next, write out all your lunch, snack and fruit options in their corresponding colors. Laminate and adhere under Options.

Hang anywhere in your kitchen and let the kids plan their own lunch for the week so you know exactly what to pack every morning!
