Meal Planning

Monthly Meal Planner Description quoted from the Monthly Meal Planner
"Experts agree that one of the most important things we parents can do for our children is to make family dinner time a priority; it gives parents, and kids alike a chance to unwind, recharge and bond over a hot meal. Studies have shown that regularly eating dinner as a family can actually reduce the risk of a teen-age girl developing an eating disorder. What’s more, eating dinner as a family can reduce the risk and even reverse both childhood and adult obesity! And yet, day after day, the afternoon crunch and stresses of rush hour are repeatedly compounded by the recurring, panicked question of “what’s for dinner?!”  This is why a calendar brimming with a month full of meal ideas (a Monthly Meal Planner) is exactly what we all need! Planning ahead reduces stress, leads to healthier food choices, and best of all, it saves money!"
