Menu Plan for August 5-11

Menu Plan

Below is what we’ve got on tap for this coming week for our “as close to real food with some convenience thrown in” kid-friendly menu. I thought some pictures of the ones I’ve made might be helpful in deciding if you want to attempt any of these ideas. Even though I don’t always stick to the plan, it at least gives me a shopping list and idea of what to prepare for. Polly posted a Menu Planner Printable that you may find helpful as your plan your weekly menu, too.

Have a great week!

    Wow, that menu plan looks awesome! Everything seems really healthy and kid friendly – not something easy to achieve! Also, I have never heard of a breakfast cookie (at least one that’s good for you). What a great idea!
