Feed your family well without spending so much time figuring out how to do it all with the help of my latest family meal plan. They’re kid-friendly, yet parent-approved, and are a way to get some much needed cooking inspiration this spring!
Family Meal Plan

Meal Planning Rotation
I’m offering ideas for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinners for each week to hopefully give you plenty of options. My monthly meal plans are built around the ideas of themes, which is meant to help reduce decision fatigue—since you start with narrower categories—and make it a little easier to feed your family.
I for sure don’t make every meal or snack from scratch, but I try to offer ideas in case one sounds good to you to try this week. You can of course do all of these, but do what works best for your life.
