As a busy mom of 4 boys, desperately trying to feed them on a budget, I often find myself in an internal debate that goes something like this:
Oh, it’s so nice to have all these grab-n-go packs for lunchbox…
I NEEEEEEED these grab-n-go school snacks to toss into backpacks… (because not a morning person!)
Ooooooh, look a protein-packed pre-portioned box of yum….
WHOA Erin. WHOA. Whoa there.
Easy there….slow down…what’s this gonna do to your grocery budget?
Well…that got expensive FAST.
But…I really do need this to be easy.
But do you.
Yes, I do.
No, you don’t.
You need balance.
That’s what I need.
That is literally the back and forth in my head as I work week after week, and month after month, to maintain the balance of higher costs of convenience with my monthly grocery budget.
And I can sense you feel it too.
Filling lunch boxes and backpacks every day with easy, healthy, and affordable snacks doesn’t have to be so hard!
Below, I have some ideas for you that will help you strike this balance by ordering healthful snacks in bulk from Amazon, using your SNAP EBT card!

#4 – Keep an eagle eye on your grocery and food spending and make sure your convenience snack options fit into your budget.

Yay for a school lunchbox, packed entirely by an 8 year old! Good job buddy!
How to Set Kids Up for Successful Packing
I want my boys to be both independent in the kitchen, learning how to prepare full meals, as well as other tasks like packing their lunch and snacks for the school day.
For many years, we have had a “lunchbox drawer” to help them make good and balanced choices.
The drawer has grown over the years, as they have grown. It’s now a drawer plus 2 shelves.
Here’s a look at our protein-packed + whole grain + affordable grab-n-go options for them to choose, all ordered from Amazon!
Having everything organized makes it even easier for the boys to grab snacks to go into their lunch boxes and backpacks.
They each have their preferences and I work hard to make sure they have easy, affordable options.
And yes, I watch and check to make sure they are getting a good balance of all the food groups!
