Tips to planning family meals If you aren’t used to this way of cooking, meal planning is a great way to get started.   Planning your weekly meals in detail helps ensure your family has a healthy balance of nutrients. It is a great way to save money and get organised for the week ahead reducing any last minute stress and thoughts of “What’s for dinner?!?” and allows you the easy answer to the question from the kids… “What’s for dinner?”


  • Simply choose a few of your favourite meals plus one or two new ones your family might like to try  – involving your children in some meal choices can help with acceptance and enjoyment of
  • Write down a shopping list of all the necessary ingredients and hit the shops for a bulk shop – this will save any additional trips to the shops where you may purchase unnecessary food/grocery items
  • Prepare elements of meals in advance when you get the opportunity to save time later
  • Double the quantities of some meals to stock up your freezer – these can easily be defrosted and served with fresh ingredients during those busy times ahead
