Work, after school clubs and play dates can leave little time for civilized sit down dinners with your family but, with a little planning, you may discover that you can put family meal times back on the menu.
Planning your weekly meals could help you maximize your shopping budget – and make some saving along the way! Planning ahead also encourages you to cut down on waste too.
Eating well doesn’t have to come at a premium. Buying seasonal produce and making batches that can be frozen helps you save without scrimping on portion sizes. Canned and dried lentils and beans are inexpensive but great for fibre and bulking up meals. Remember that frozen fruit and veg can be cheaper than fresh but just as nutritious.
