Empower your kids and encourage independance
Stock your pantry in organised zones to create a simple system the whole family can use. Moreover, high access items should be positioned front and centre; while an accessible snack zone will ensure the kids aren’t rifling through the rest of the pantry searching for food.
✓ Visibility and accessibility is key
✓ Create equal access (for kids and adults alike) to commonly used items
✓ Within the space create a zone specifically for the kids.
Therefore, an efficient set up is all about access and speed, and if there is one thing that takes up time in the morning it’s the breakfast/packing school lunch routine.
For instance, create a pick and pack pantry zone at child height giving the kids direct access to their breakfast essentials,drink bottles, lunch bags and food for packed lunches.
