Family meal planning for optimal health

Balanced and Nutritious Food

Healthy family meal planning doesn’t have to be a chore. In fact, with staple healthy ingredients that can be used in multiple recipes, make it stress-free! Cilantro, limes and peppers for example can be used in Mexican and Thai dishes; Prepare delicious fajitas with the ingredients and then add some noodles to create a healthy Thai chicken lime salad the next day. You are setting the foundation for a lifetime of healthy habits. Here are some tips to get you started:

Family Meal Planning is Key:

  • Schedule a weekly planning session: Dedicate a specific time each week to plan your meals. Food can be ordered online so you can plan and order from the comfort of your sofa!
  • Consider dietary needs and preferences: Accommodate any allergies, food sensitivities, or vegetarian/vegan preferences within your family.
  • Balance is key: Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein sources.

Family Meal Preparation Strategies:

  • Prep some things in advance: Wash and chop vegetables on the weekend to save time during the week. Cook double batches or freeze any leftovers for the following week.
  • Get the kids involved: Assign age-appropriate tasks like setting the table, mixing ingredients, or stirring pots. This can make them more invested in mealtime. Mealtimes do look different in our homes, so if a meal per evening together is not possible, maybe dedicate one evening on the weekend if possible to enjoy a sit-down meal together, Sundays brunch or dinner for example.
