Lunch is probably the hardest meal of the day for busy parents. Why lunch? Because many parents take their children to different activities during the summer such as library story time, the pool, daycare, gym time, dance/swim classes, etc. and when it is time to go back home, it is usually right around lunch time. This makes it very difficult to save money and eat healthy because everyone is hungry; you're more likely to stop for quick and easy food that actually ends up being more expensive than preparing a meal at home. As a busy parent with kids back in school, we have a few tips to help your family eat healthy that will save you money.
