September is a busy month for most families. It’s back to school time and that means juggling multiple kids’ schedules, balancing work and being home in time for family meals, and finding time for all the fun fall activities like apple picking, harvest festivals, and nature walks to see the changing leaves.
Now’s a good time for a reminder about the importance of planning meals in advance. Set aside some time every weekend to put together a menu and shopping list for the week. Get the kids involved in picking one or two meals of their choice. And make sure to get extra fruits and veggies that you can cut up and leave in the fridge for a quick and healthy after-school snack.
Here’s what we’ll be eating this week:
