Figuring out an easy back to school lunch for kids in different phases is a little tricky. I think I’ve nailed it with these chicken enchilada rollers that both of my kids love!

Getting back into the swing of the school routine can be exhausting. Going from those lazy summer days to the structure of school mornings is a little jolting to say the least.

Not only is Brayden back in school, but Kenzie starting pre-school in a few weeks. Trying to figure out the morning routine of who is responsible for which child and who is going to get the lunch bags ready is already making me dizzy.

It’ll be weeks before I get the “Dad, I’m tired of sandwiches”, and I’ll have to think up something more creative.

And for Kenzie, keeping her baba in a cold place all day is something we need to make sure is taken care of as well.

We’re a PackIt home through and through, since Brayden started his first day of school (we couldn’t resist doing a photo re-do since both kids have made cameos in PackIt posts)

I still don’t know what he was doing here, but super cute!

For Kenzie, I love that her PackIt freezable, gel-lined bag act as all-in-one coolers, keeps her things cool for hours. Not to mention how cute it is when she rocks it!

PackIt bags are foldable and works just like a refrigerator on the go. They’re also re-usable and eliminate the need for wasteful single-use products.

For Brayden, he’s being sent off with PackIt Flex Bento Container. I love that this has changeable dividers to prevent any food from touching – a picky child’s dream!

I also love the leak-proof dip cup that it comes with so I can send him off with carrots and ranch for a snack, or even a little salad with a dressing container.

It’s so FLEXible.

Yup. I Dad-level punned.

As for the chicken enchilada snackers these are a great lunch idea to send off in any combo of PackIt Items. It will stay cold in the bag.

If you combine it with the Flex Bento Container, there’s no risk of them getting smashed.

Especially if you choose to roll them, like I did for Brayden.

And these snackers are SO easy to prep. Think of it a  cheese ball, used as a spread. Mix your cheeses and shredded chicken. Season with some enchilada sauce and taco seasoning.

Let it chill in the fridge and spread on a tortilla.

Depending on your child’s preference you can either cut in wedges or roll and cut like sushi.

To each their own!
