Lunch boxes on a budget for the whole family.

Chloe is a mum to four kids and one thing that never stops in her house is “I’m hungry” – and we think most mums can relate!

Back to school means lunch boxes! Here is how you can prep on a budget

Having snacks on hand for school lunch boxes and after school snacks is a must and so Chloe decided to do some back to school prep! See the results below.

Meal prep for weight loss AND lunch boxes

Having this meal prep on hand also means Chloe can stay on track with her weight loss goals AND can keep within her weekly food budget.

Chloe has lost 7st. on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and she says it’s because of this program that she can be an organised, motivated and happy mum who can not only take care of her kids but herself in the process too!

Back to school meal prep

Chloe made 78 serves of snacks and 44 serves of lunch/dinner.

“We have football training 3 nights a week and football games all day Saturday and all morning Sunday so I need to have plenty of snacks on hand and dinners that I can just grab at a moment’s notice so I’m not tempted by a quick and easy fix or buying takeaway,” Chloe said.

This meal prep took Chloe 4 hours and will save her so much time during the week.  It means she can be more involved with her kids instead of rushing around trying to get it all done in what little time she has!

“I don’t normally do big meal preps but after doing a massive one recently it has shown me how much of a difference it makes! My life is just so busy these days and I need meal prep to keep me on track,” Chloe adds.
