August 7, 2012

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Are you in a panic trying to get your kids back to school, figure out what to pack for lunch, and fit school supplies into your budget? Not to worry: online meal planning service eMeals.com has put together a Back-to-School Survival Kit, tips for school supply shopping, and a sweepstakes for a $100 Visa gift card to get you over the hump and get your kids off on the right foot as they start the new school year.

Available exclusively to current and new eMeals subscribers, the eMeals Back-to-School Survival kit includes a checklist to get you (and your kids!) organized, printable notes with messages such as “You are just ‘plum’ perfect!” to insert in kids’ lunchboxes for a midday pick-me-up from home, and a five-day lunch menu with recipes for fun fixings such as Mexican Roll-Ups and Pizza Mini Muffins that will be the envy of the PB&J set. (For a sneak preview, check out the free recipe for Turkey Pinwheels at http://blog.emeals.com/2012/07/new-lunch-menu-from-emeals/)

To help you save money on school supplies, eMeals has put together a list of shopping strategies at http://blog.emeals.com/2012/07/save-money-on-back-to-school-supplies/

And to lessen the pain in the pocketbook even more, the company is sponsoring a series of sweepstakes with three chances to win a $100 Visa gift card at http://www.facebook.com/emealz/app_143103275748075. The first sweepstakes has ended but the next two are scheduled from August 6-19 and August 20-31. Winners will be picked at random from all entries received.

It’s all part of eMeals’ campaign to help make time for family, especially when it comes to getting dinner on the table.
