With summer wrapping up, the time has finally come to consider the back-to-school routine! For parents of school-aged children, going back to school can be a difficult transition back to early mornings, busy evenings and generally hectic schedules. While some chaos is inevitable, here is our tried-and-true guide for getting back into the school time routine for the entire family.
Create Good Routines Early
Back to school means back to early mornings, scheduled bedtimes, and busy morning drop-offs at daycare, school and work. To streamline your morning routine come September, we recommend establishing morning and bedtime routines for your entire family.
Some of our tried and true tips for getting back into the swing of school time routines include:
- Set a schedule and make it fun! Create a sticker chart, incorporate games or add a little fun to getting dressed or bathtime.
- Get children excited for school by test driving your morning routine by walking, driving or practicing taking the bus to school.
- Teach new skills and self-efficiency by asking your kids for help with essential tasks like brushing their teeth, packing their lunches or picking out their school supplies

Find Healthy Snacks and Treats for Busy Days
One of the best ways to set your kids up for success in a school year is to fuel their day with healthy and accessible snacks. We recommend having fresh fruits and veggies sliced and peeled in snack-sized portions for kids to grab on the go or pack in lunches quickly. And don’t forget about healthy treats in the car in the morning or for an afternoon snack. We love having our SuperFruit Freezies in the freezer for an after-school treat!
