Tip 3: Prep Your Fridge and Freezer
This lends itself to Tip 2 in so far as creating space for school lunch items; naturally, these ones need to be chilled. Clear out a section of your lowest fridge shelf and store items such as sandwiches, pre-prepared chopped veggies, fruit, yoghurts and cheese sticks. Each weekend, freeze sandwiches and any home made treats for the week and place pre-cut veggies and fruit into individual serves within the fridge; the kids are more likely to opt for healthy foods if the prep work has been done for them (and think about how much time you’ll save each morning!).
Bananas are always hard to keep in their prime. Use a Banana Bag and keep your bananas in the fridge. This can extend the life of your bananas by up to 2 weeks. The Banana Bag provides the exact amount of insulation and air needed to stop a banana over-ripening, while keeping the skin warm enough to prevent it from blackening.
