The transition back to school can be stressful for both kids and parents. Meal planning can be difficult, especially if you’ve got picky eaters at home.
A good way around this is to get the kids involved in the kitchen and allow them to add their favourite recipes and ingredients. This way there are no surprises, no uneaten lunchboxes and no complaints when it comes to breakfast or dinner.
Bank on Breakfast
All your breakfast favorites can be made ahead of time at home and frozen for up to two months.

For muffins it’s better to freeze the batter than the finished product. Make your muffins as you usually would, line your muffin pans and fill ¾ way with batter then cover the pan and freeze. Once solid remove your muffin pans and stack your unbaked treats in a resealable, freezer safe bag or container. This way you can bake any amount or variety of muffins right from the freezer, adding only 5 minutes to the recipe’s baking time.
