School breaks are great, but if you are not prepared for feeding your family you can get caught off guard. Marie outlines a few tips to make meal and snack time easier during short breaks from school.
1- Plan your menu early and go shopping early.
2- Ask your kids what they want to eat and work out the compromises before you go to the grocery store.
3- Plan for treats and give your kids some filling food before the treat if you are afraid the treat will not be enough to fill them up.
4- Plan simple meals for dinner so you don’t have to stop your activities to cook.
5- Use cooking dinner as an activity by working together to make a special dinner that takes extra work to make.
