Packing lunch in the morning can be a real time-suck, especially when you are trying to get out of the house on time, so we’ve teamed up with The Quaker Oats Company to share some #OffYouGo tips and tricks to help you make your kids’ lunches quickly. That way you’ll spend less time behind the kitchen counter and more time eating a healthy breakfast with your family before the day begins. After all, those precious moments of QT will create connections with your loved ones.

And now for the how-to.



— lunch box

— cupcake liners

— napkins

— sponge ice pack (2 new sponges + sealable plastic bag)



— fruit

— veggies

— sandwich

— crackers

— oatmeal bar


Gather your supplies and let’s make lunch!


Add a napkin, sandwich and cupcake liners. Then fill the cupcake liners with healthy snacks like an oatmeal bar, fruit and veggies.


A really great way to keep your kids’ lunch cold is to freeze unused wet sponges and then put them in a sealable plastic bag. Such a great ice pack hack!


Pro tip: always leave a note :)


Close it up and #OffYouGo!
