Healthy eating for today’s busy family can be quite a challenge. A typical day in the life of any family can be hectic — balancing kids’ schoolwork and activities with parents’ work schedules – not to mention individual preferences at the meal table. With all of these competing demands, who has the time to think about making nutritious and healthy meals?
Parents want to do what is best for their families, but often find themselves stretched to the limit with everything they have to accomplish in a day. And for so many, meal planning for health and nutrition feels like a daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be.
