Five Tips: Making After-School Dinners Easier

Eat healthy, stay on budget, strive to thrive

back to school

With school starting super soon (if it hasn't already), we’d be remiss if we told you we weren’t in full BTS mode here at Mom Made's HQ. So to help keep our cool – and keep our family life on track – we created a few tips and tricks for getting a healthy meal on the table that won’t break the bank, and – depending on where you live – have almost everything on your shopping list delivered right to your door. Instead of waiting in line at the store, hanging out at red lights or piling all the kids in the car, you can relax, grab a glass of wine and spend some quality time with the kiddos before homework quickly eclipses these warm summer nights.

Tip 1 – Make your list ahead of time

Know exactly what you need before you head to the store. Pen and paper seem to be our tried and true method of note taking, but list making apps are super great too! Shelf Scouter and Any List are two of our favorites.

Tip 2 – Use online coupons!

Apps like Shrink are designed to hold your favorite product coupons in your phone, and reward you when you buy – no clipping required! There’s also some Mom Made coupons in the Shrink app (hint, hint).

Tip 3 – Meal plan

Take 30 minutes at some point during the week(end) and plan out what you’ll have for dinner that week. Our founder, Heather, swears by a meal planning weekly subscription with The Six O'Clock Scramble. Whether you create a spreadsheet with ingredients, recipes and the like, Pinterest boards of awesome crockpot dishes, or let the Scramble's service do it for you, you’ll breathe easier knowing that you have a few ideas when the week starts and the family inevitably asks “what’s for dinner?” or schedules have to be moved around because a soccer game is the same time as ballet rehearsal!

Tip 4 – Order online

Take advantage of online shopping to get your groceries delivered right to your door! Instacart and Amazon Pantry offer door to door service without getting off the couch. Fresh veggies, fruits, meats, pastas, sauces, and more are all available – often at the same price as your regular store. You’ll have more time to spend with the family, and no one tugging on you at the checkout line for those pesky M&Ms that just happen to be at eye level.

Tip 5 – Get the kiddos involved

Every chef needs a sous chef right? Let the little ones belly up to the kitchen counter and teach them the finer art of slicing and dicing veggies, rolling out dough, measuring flour and layering up lasagna. Classic dishes like meatloaf will really get their hands dirty (be sure to wash hands afterwards!) and baking cookies will make even the sourest of homework frowns turn upside down. Since older kids can handle some chores they can help with cleanup and setting the kitchen table. Give mini chefs a different job each night, so they get the full range of what it really means to be on Chopped Junior! Eat healthy, stay on budget, strive to thrive.

Eating Healthy

Thoughts from an 11-year old.  Why eat healthy foods? 

My name is Emory and I'll soon be starting 6th grade. I love to play soccer, ride my bike, swim, play with my friends, do triathalons and I also love to cook. 

I believe eating healthy is one of those things that everyone needs to do. I have always been eating healthy, so that I grow more. One of the reasons I love eating healthy is because of all the happiness it brings.

Usually after I have a good meal I think, ”WOW this feels really good”, or sometimes after I eat a lot of candy I feel, ”Ohh I can’t eat any more.” Which feeling would you pick? I think that I would pick eating the healthy food, which is always the better choice.

As I get older, I have started to learn more about the world happening around me, and one of those things is that so many people don't eat healthy foods. Growing up with a mom that has an organic food business I have always been eating healthy. The majority of the food in our house is organic. Since I have been eating healthy foods for so long I learned to like them a lot. I love to eat fruit and vegetables, they are two of my favorite snacks. Fruits and vegetables are the best things to eat, they give you all the right nutrition that your body needs to stay healthy.

Pack Up and Snack Up!

Whether you’re heading to the Grand Canyon or the beach this summer, road trips never seem to be as fun as the destination. There’s the hassle of packing everything up and making sure the kids are entertained. But it doesn't have to be that way! We’ve put together our top five tips to make your family road trip more enjoyable.

Tip 1: Backpacks Aren’t Just For School

Have each child help you fill their backpack with some of their favorite activities like coloring books, colored pencils, electronics, a journal and their favorite toys. Getting the kids involved with the packing will get everyone excited for the upcoming trip.

Tip 2: Snack On

According to a survey from “Choice Hotels” and “FamilyFun” magazine, 73% of families consider snacks to be the #1 way to keep kids happy on road trips. Be sure to pack an abundance of healthy snacks so you’re not stopping every 30 minutes for junk food.  With Mom Made’s Cheese Pizza Munchies, road trip snacks are easy and fun. Before hitting the road, wrap up the Munchies in a paper towel and heat for 60 seconds in the microwave. Then wrap it in tin foil for easy travel. Pack a cooler or bag of snacks like washed fruit and fill up the water bottles with H2O!

Tip 3: Power Up

The last thing you want is to hit the highway and realize that the electronics are low on battery. Also stock up at the library with books on tape and books for the car. Nothing like a “new” book for a child. Make sure to have all the electronics at full power and loaded with fun games, audio books, and movies for the drive. There are tons of apps out there that are great to keep the kids entertained while on the road. Check out “RoadTripBingo” and “A Family Matters” applications. “RoadTripBingo” allows kids to look for hundreds of things while you drive. See who can fill up their card first! “A Family Matters” is a great way to communicate with your children not just in the car, but around the dinner table and while waiting in line.

Tip 4: Play the “Old Fashioned” Games

Play the license plate game. Have a sing-a-long. Create a scavenger hunt - give each child a list of items to watch for while driving and have a prize for the child who completes it first. Count. Count red cars, black cars, police cars, animals, etc. Play the alphabet game with famous people, ie A = Amelia Earhart, B = Big Bird, etc, and talk about who these folks are as you name them. Play with aluminum foil – give each child a sheet of aluminum foil and have them make an animal, a mask, etc. Practice a foreign language. For more fun game ideas, click here http://www.momsminivan.com/bigkids.html

Tip 5: Give Them a Job

Keep the kiddos engaged by giving them a job to do every time you stop. Kids will love the responsibility of being the “Squeegee Master” or the “Cleaning Captain.” At every rest stop and gas station, have one person be in charge of cleaning the windows and the other clear out the car of any trash. Have kids switch roles every two or three stops to keep things fun.

How do you keep your kids entertained? What are your go-to snacks when you travel? Happy trails!
