This week, EC talks with Jessica Beacom of the Real Food Dietitians. They discuss different meal prep strategies and tips for maintaining a healthy diet. They highlight the significance of meal planning, prepping proteins ahead of time, and using sauces and seasonings to enhance the flavor of pre-cooked meals. Additionally, they share ideas for convenient and simple meals, such as sheet pan meals and adult lunchables.

Takeaways:

  • Involve children in meal planning and preparation to encourage their interest in healthier foods.
  • Batch prep proteins and use sauces or pan juices to keep them moist and flavorful when reheating.
  • Use frozen vegetables as a convenient and nutritious option for meal prep.
  • Create meal options like sheet pan meals or “adult lunchables” that include a balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and colorful vegetables.
  • Expose children to new foods multiple times and serve them alongside familiar foods to increase their acceptance over time.
