Menu Planning

Planning a healthy weekly menu with variety for the whole family is simple.

  1. Set out your number of meals: Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner for example.
  2. Enter the lunch into your menu from the kids’ school, they usually provide it monthly, or enter what you will pack.
  3. Add in breakfasts that are varied, no breakfast repeated more than twice a week.
  4. Add in dinners, taking care that each dinner has a protein, a fat and a carb and desert.
  5. Add in snacks
  6. Check to make sure foods are not repeated during the day. If yogurt is for breakfast than snacks should be something different.
  7. If you are keeping carbs low, as we do, check to make sure that the same foods are not repeated throughout the day.
  8. Write the menu on a white-board, or print the menu, hang it in the kitchen and do your shopping.
