Master the Art (and Science) of Family Meal Planning

Master the Art (& Science) of Family Meal Planning - Aviva Goldfarb

Do you find family meal planning a pain? Has dinner become the bane of your life? Are you struggling?


You’re not alone, and this is one of the reasons I started The Six O’Clock Scramble. As I told my good friend Richie Holmes Grant, while it may take a little more time on the front end, planning will be well worth it, saving you hours and dollars later.

I suggest planning three dinners a week and considering your family schedule so you can plan your meals to correspond with your meal needs.

Richie has quite a few great tips in her article at—10 of them, to be exact—which she dubbed the “10 Golden Rules” for family meal planning. I think you’ll find it helpful (and not just because she quotes me!).

I’d love to hear: what family meal planning advice do YOU have? Share in the comments!
