Meal planning means something different for everyone. For busy mum of 3 teenagers, this mum has planned the weeks meals around what the kids can do to help out and get them introduced to skills in the kitchen with different produce, flavours and family favourites.
MEAL PLANNING TIP
Each week I am going to share one meal planning/grocery budget tip to help you through this process.
