How to Use A Family Meal Planner
Zainab Jagot Ahmed
Have you considered using meal planner? They’re an excellent way of organizing your meals and also your kitchen stocks! With fresh produce having a ‘best before’ date, you don’t want to buy loads and then not have enough time to cook them before they go bad. Meal plans help with reducing wastage and keep your weekly shopping costs low as you’ll only buy what you need each week.
Meal plans don’t need to be complicated either. Simply learn to cook a few meals well and rotate them. This way you’ll have variety in your family’s diet, and by cooking these meals over and over again, you’ll start cooking them quickly saving you valuable time as well.
I always plan my meals ahead of the week and believe me when I say they work and I would never go back!! I have enough chaos in my life being a parent and at least the kitchen chaos is under control. So I’ve put together a few meal planners for all of us to use. That’s right – you included. Simply click on the image of the meal plan relevant to your family, save it and print. Then stick it on your fridge and populate it with your meals for the week.
Let me know how you get on and happy meal planning!
