Hey there, busy parents! Ever feel like mornings are a mad dash to pack lunches and get the kids off to school? We get it. That’s why the KIC team is here to lend a hand and help you reclaim those hectic mornings for quality family time.

Let’s dive into the BIG 5 of meal prepping for kids:

1. Quality Containers:

Are you a pro at meal prepping for your kids? Well, let’s make sure those meals stay fresh and delicious! Investing in high-quality containers isn’t just about convenience—it’s about keeping those meals tasting great for longer. These containers are a smart investment that will serve your family for years to come.

2. Planning Like a Pro:

Planning ahead is the golden rule of meal prepping. Break it down with:

  • Smart Grocery Runs: Shop for what you need, when you need it, without breaking the bank. And take the kids with you, you’d be surprised what they might find and really love.
  • Weekend Meal Plans: Map out your week’s meals in advance to avoid last-minute stress.
    Have the young ones help you come up with ideas and include them in the preparation. Remember this is all about getting back the quality time with the family.
  • Mix It Up: Variety is the spice of life! Let the children choose their favourite flavours and textures and keep things exciting.
  • Keep It Simple: Don’t overcomplicate things. Keep your meals fuss-free and enjoy the process.

3. Allergy-Friendly Meal Prepping Options:

Food allergies shouldn’t hold you back. Substitute common allergens with healthier alternatives for delicious and safe meals.

These are some of the great examples we love:
Sesame seeds can be substituted with Poppy, hemp, or, chia seeds.
Instead of nuts and nut powders use roasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
And who needs flour when you can use gluten-free baking powder?
