I am really trying to get back into the swing of meal planning. I thrive on lists and organisation and seem to fall in a heap when we have so much to do and I can't see where we are heading. My mum is staying with us for a couple of weeks so she has been a great help with the kids while I try to get a little organised. I will be doing the same planning with Gabbylocks's lunch when she starts prep next week. I do the same for Rogay Bear's Day Care lunches. Luckily they supply morning and afternoon tea.
We are trying to get back to healthy eating in our house so cutting back on the carbs is proving to be interesting when meal planning. Homemade treats are always on the list so we know what our kids are eating.
