Summer is winding down, and back-to-school preparations are in full gear. Fall is a wonderful time in New England, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming for parents with new schedules and packed calendars. We’re always in favor of things that can make our lives as busy parents just a shred easier. Introducing our favorite back-to-school mealtime hack: Feast & Fettle.

Here are a few ways Feast & Fettle can help lighten the load both mentally and physically this year.

1. The meals are ready to eat!

Feast & Fettle provides your family with nutritious, ready-to-eat meals. No more scrambling to pull dinner ingredients together after a long day or before or after a sports practice or extracurricular. Feast & Fettle is a home-cooked meal without the cooking! All meals are delivered fresh (not shipped!) and come ready to simply serve and eat. 

2. No more meal-planning nightmares 

With Feast & Fettle, meal planning is made EASY! When you select your menu items, you can choose the day your meals will be delivered. This is super helpful with meal planing for busy families. No more, “What’s for dinner?” Everyone will have an expectation of what the evening plans will be. If you have older kids who may be home alone, they can microwave their dinner from Feast & Fettle instead of racking up your GrubHub account.

3. The kids can have a say

Involve your kids in your menu selection and look forward to fewer fights over what’s on the dinner table! Your kids can pick their own meals from a kids menu or, for a more adventurous eater, right off the entree menu. Your kids will feel in control of their menu (like they feel at a restaurant!), and you can rest easy knowing their meal is made locally with fresh ingredients. 

4. Individual portions for tricky schedules

Feast & Fettle meals come in individual portions, making eating on the go a breeze. Whether you’re eating a salad in the car while being “mom taxi” or handing a prepared meal to a kiddo after a long day of school and extracurriculars, Feast & Fettle makes it all so much easier. 

And it’s not just about dinner! Feast & Fettle has some great on-the-go breakfast and lunch items, like egg bites, yogurt parfaits (a favorite in my house), amazing egg salad, and salads with your choice of protein. These extra items can be a total lifesaver if you kids that are not always waking up in time to make breakfast.
