Back to School with BJ's Wholesale Club

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a back to school event at my local BJ’s Wholesale Club. We toured through the store discussing all the new items BJ’s has stocked to help you prepare for the new school year. Backpacks, lunch boxes, pens, Post-it Notes, markers, crayons… everything you might need.

Then as a special treat Chef Glenn Lyman of GCooks discussed how to stock up on BJ’s grocery items for quick, healthy snacks and lunches that kids can make on their own. Children are much more likely to eat healthy if they prepare the food themselves. And if you put them in charge of their lunch and/or snack they can’t complain to you if they don’t like it!

Chef Glenn talked about how, with just a little bit of prep work from mom or dad, kids could make their own healthy and delicious lunches and snacks just as easily as grabbing a pre-made, preservative-filled snack pack from the pantry.

With sliced Granny Smith apples, celery, honey ham, smoked turkey, salami, pretzel rods, sliced colby jack cheese, Babybel Mini Original Cheese, cream cheese and honey mustard dressing, Chef Glenn created all types of crunchy, sweet and savory treats that all the kids LOVED. Including an awesome “sushi” roll that was my 12 year old’s favorite snack of the night.

Between Chef Glenn’s suggestions and the amazing lunch boxes we picked up at BJ’s, for the first time since my kids started school I’m not completely dreading our morning routine.

Before you panic and start running all over town looking for school supplies, stocking up on snacks, water bottles and juice boxes, stop at your local BJ’s to find everything you need under one roof.

  1. What a blast you had at BJ's searching through all the great school items. We don't have one in this part of Nevada, but I'll be looking for one when I travel. The thing I enjoy most about the recipe above is that we have these things in the refrigerator or pantry, and it's a good way to have something convenient to eat while we reduce the amount of bread we're eating.
  2. It looks like they have a lot of great stuff. The nearest one to us is about an hour away. The ham and cheese sushi rolls look yummy.
  3. I make Turkey and Cheese sushi for my kids and they love it. My sister in law shops twice a month at BJ's and she says that she saves so much money with her membership compared to shopping in regular supermarkets.
  4. I really need to check out BJ's, I always hear such great things about their stores and we have one about 45 minutes from here. This looks like a delicious idea for school lunch!
  5. These are such great ideas! Thank you. And five kids!? You go girl! We can barely get out the door with only two.
  6. These are great lunch ideas. BJ’s Wholesale Club looks like a great place for us to stock up on all my Daughters dorm room needs.
  7. It looks like BJ's has some great prices on back to school stuff. We don't eat ham but I bet my kids would love turkey and swiss sushi. It's like a little twist on their regular lunch sandwiches.
  8. Mmmm those look really good. My little one has to bring lunch to pre-school every day, and he is a very picky eater. Will have to give these a try!!
  9. My daughter brought me to BJ's the other day and I was so surprised by how much stuff they offer. Didn't realize you could get NORMAL sized items! I will be going back!
