FEATURED RECIPES: Summer is a fun time to get your kids in the kitchen with you. That’s why this week’s meal plan includes lots of recipes perfect for cooking with your kiddos. I also invite you to join my Kids in the Kitchen Summer School Series starting on Monday, July 15 for lots of practical tips and recipes for enjoying time in the kitchen with your kiddos.

Welcome to The Better Mom’s bi-weekly meal planning schedule!

 Our hope is that this will be a great resource
