Having a big batch cook-up over the weekend is a great way to take the stress out of preparing school lunches each morning, it’s economical, and it can be a great way to sneak some extra fruit and veg into your families diet. Having non-processed food at the ready can benefit the whole family whenever hunger strikes – leaving you less likely to reach for a chocolate bar or other quick fix you may later regret!
Having preprepared food at the ready also means you and your family will be able to pack up food and head out for a family picnic at the park, or beach at a moments notice.
Have unexpected visitors turn up? No problem when you have tasty snacks at the ready!
