Ultimate Back to School Survival Guide

The kids are going back to school which means back to routine. Back to making lunches and having dinner ready at a certain time, because you know night time activities like gymnastics, karate etc. start up again. We want to help you get ready and survive back to school season with some tips and recipes.


Top 3 Tips to Survive Back to School from The GG Sisters

  1. The week leading up to school, we recommend that you start getting the kids back in to routine. For us, the kids have been going to bed at 9:30pm all summer, and waking up at 9:00am. Starting next week, they will be heading to bed at 8pm and waking up at 7:30am.
  2. Make a BACK TO SCHOOL VISION BOARD – Take out your favourite magazines, get some bristol board, and have the kids create their goals for the year ahead. This will get them excited and motivated to head back to school, while deflecting from the back to school jitters.
  3. Come up with some menu ideas for back to school to make your life as a parent easier. Have the kids help you too! Here are some fun meals using our favourite Natural from the Farm deli products from Maple Lodge Farms that will help you SURVIVE one full day of quick and easy meals. It will keep the kids fed, on time for school and extracurricular Plus, you might even have leftovers so you don’t have to make lunch or dinner the following day. I know, I know you love us…
