Take some of the work out of feeding your crew this month with 4 weeks of meal ideas you can feed to your entire family—babies and toddlers included! The ideas include breakfast, snacks, lunch, and dinner, with easy methods and accessible ingredients.
Healthy Family Meal Plan
I know this time of year can often feel like it’s endless, at least if you live in the frozen tundra of the Midwest, so I did my best to add in some new flavors to this month’s meal plan. My hope is that this meal plan offers you approachable ideas to help you feed your family from breakfast through dinner, and reminds you that simple meals are often the best ones.
Use all of the ideas here, pick and choose a couple to try, or come back to this post throughout the month when you find yourself without a dinner plan. Whatever your approach to meal planning, I’m here to help!
I plan my months using the idea of a rotation that narrows my options for each week, but still offers flexibility. The breakfast and lunch categories stay the same throughout the month, the the dinners rotate every other week. You can adjust this to work for your family, but not having to start from scratch each month is so helpful for my brain that I hope it helps you too!
February Week 1
I like to round out meals with a side of fruit or simple veggies, and milk or water.
- Sugar-Free Banana Muffins
- Quick and Easy Scrambled Eggs
- Carrot Cake Oatmeal
- Breakfast Burrito Egg Casserole
- Creamy Hummus with crackers and snap peas
- ABC Muffins with cheese and fruit or a smoothie
- Chicken and Sweet Potato Bowls
- Mango Yogurt Smoothie
- Veggie Bean Chili
- Instant Pot Chana Masala
- Quick Shrimp Tacos
- Sausage Pasta with Broccoli
- Sausage Meatball Sandwiches with Sauteed Carrots
February Week 2
When serving family meals, I aim to include 1-2 foods the kids usually like to ensure that there’s always something on the table that they like. This helps to prevent making them something separate—and me having to get up 17 times during a meal!
- Easy Red Lentil Soup
- Intant Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs
- Easy Burrito Bowls
- Veggie Nuggets (with a simple Caesar Salad)
- Broccoli and Beef Stir Fry
February Week 3
We do oatmeal twice a week to keep it in regular rotation, which I find helps the kids be open to eating it–but it’s not enough that they have a chance to get bored of it!
- Mini Omelet with toast and clementine
- Blueberry Banana Muffins with Zucchini
- Oatmeal with Fruit
- Cheesy Breakfast Hashbrown Casserole
- Alphabet Soup
- Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken with Rolls
- Spinach Quesadillas
- Easy Citrus Shrimp and Noodles
- Sheet Pan Gnocchi with Sausage
February Week 4
Add in some other favorite meals or takeout, leftovers, or snack dinners as you like.
- Healthy Broccoli Cheddar Soup
- Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup
- Family-Style Refried Bean Tacos
- Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
- Sheet Pan Potato Nachos
