The Perfect Recipe For a Great School Year!

Because we’re so excited for back-to-school season, our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Mandy Welch, has come up with a few tips that she would like to share in order to help make mealtime planning easy as our kiddos start a new school year!
Even the smallest changes to your routine can make a world of difference.
Which of the following can work for you?

  • Schedule 1-2 meal planning days per month – be sure to mark them in your calendar!
  • Determine what the staple snacks/ingredients are in your kitchen. Checking on your inventory weekly can help you keep from running out halfway through the week!
  • Take a moment each night to think through breakfast. What can be laid out the night before to help the morning run smoothly?
  • Develop a chore system. Have your child choose what snacks to include in their lunch the night before, or have them help you pack it in the morning!
  • Think through leftovers. What will be easy to pack and send your kiddo for lunch the next day? What will most likely have to be thrown out?
  • Most importantly, make it fun for all!

Some great resources that can help make this process easier include:
