Back to Lunch Boxes

Let kids create a back-to-school menu

Encourage kids to participate in back-to-school preparations by giving them the opportunity to create their own menu. Kids like to be involved in the decision-making process, and it's even more exciting for them when they can do it easily through an app or website. Introduce them to the features of Cookidoo® and let them choose from the following options:

• Have them create a weekly plan in "My Week". They can choose recipes for lunch, snacks or dinner and organize their meal plan accordingly.
• Let them create a personalized collection in "My Recipes" with their name, such as "David's Back-to-School Favorites."
• Allow them to make a "back-to-school shopping list" to ensure they have everything they need for the upcoming school days using the shopping list feature.

Make Ahead with Thermomix®

Yogurts: Prepare a batch to last the week.
Pancakes or waffles: Make a batch and freeze for later.
Bread, muffins and biscuits: Bake a fresh supply for the week.
Granola and energy bars: Prepare homemade versions for healthy snacking.
Alternative milks: Try almond, soy, hazelnut, or other plant-based options.

Smart Tip for Smoother Mornings

Keep a breakfast tray on hand with jars of all kinds of toppings for yogurts and pancakes, such as nuts, pumpkin seeds, honey, jam, cinnamon and granola. This small detail will save you a lot of time in the morning!
