Yes…it’s time to get organised again as the kids get back to school. Doesn’t matter whether you’re a stay at home or working parent after school routines are essential. With homework and family eating time to fit in around some quality downtime, bath time and hopefully an early bedtime for the school-goers, evenings can be the most exhausting part of the day.
Midweek meal times are the bane of every parent’s life. Especially after many long weeks of having no strict routine during the summer. It’s hard to get back into the swing of it! We’re here to help with some meal ideas for family eating. In most cases, they can be prepared in advance and be ready to reheat when you get home. These tasty offerings from our recipe bank work for families who like to sit down together for a meal, as well as for those who prefer the kids to have their dinner as soon as they arrive home from school ravenous. With a little advance thinking and portioning, you can have it on the plate in no time.
