LIke millions of other households we are in the process of prepping for back to school and beginning the fall Meal Planning process. And, for what feels like forever, I’ve planned the meals, food and groceries for the week with some input and shopping help along the way. But, this year, I’m giving the kids full reign with certain meals including their breakfast, lunchbox packing and after school snacks. I created this chart below for my youngest and the entire process is working. My youngest is thinking, planning, we’re chatting through the ideas and we’re balancing. The next phase? Putting them to work helping with the prep as we follow along on the chart hung in the pantry. The Goal? Teaching them a valuable life skill. My only regret? Not starting this sooner!
Below the picture is a link for a free printable of this Meal Planning Chart if you are interested in joining us as we start our Survivor Sunday’s ™ and begin or weekly planning along with a few links to a breakfast, lunch and after school snack that we LOVE!
