Weeknight Meal Planning Ideas for Quick & Easy Meal Planning

Share the responsibility of getting supper on the table. When kids get home from school or after-school activities, ensure they pitch in with meal prep.

 

  • Work together to make a meal plan for the week. Ask for input and use it as an opportunity to share information about making nutritious choices.
  • If kids are old enough to be left home alone, they are also at the age where they can preheat the oven and then place in pre-made casseroles and set the timer. Just remember to leave instructions and supervise a couple of times before so you both feel at ease.
  • Reward good grades and other accomplishments with the chance to decide what’s for dinner.
  • Celebrate Opposite Day and have breakfast for dinner. Why wait for the weekend to enjoy waffles?
  • Salads are an easy way for kids to contribute. Ask kids to wash pre-packaged lettuce in the salad spinner. Slice veggies. Right before dinner is served, ask them to toss the ingredients together and dress.
  • Get those taste buds to try something new. Enlist kids to search online for new recipes that use ingredients you may already have.
