If you're tired of the same old song and dance that comes with making your child a PB&J sandwich every morning — and your child is equally as bored — it's time to switch things up. Put your slow cooker to use this school year for more than dinners and freezer meals, and whip up a batch of something your kid loves on the weekend to provide them with a hot food meal option all week long. All you need to do in the morning is reheat the food (not in a plastic container, though!) and pack it in an insulated lunch container that'll keep it warm until their lunch hour.
Check out some of our favorite slow cooker meals that'll fill your kiddo up just enough so they're ready for an afternoon of learning.
