I have found the easiest way to feed my teens between meals is to make healthy freezer meals for them. My kids eat them after school, on work breaks, before sports events, and when they’re up late. I could easily stock my freezer up with Pizza Pops and Pogo Sticks (and I do), but I like to ensure there’s some healthy options for them as well.
It’s honestly not as overwhelming as you would think it is. I pick one day a month and just make a few options and freeze them. I definitely make more freezer meal options in the winter as I like being in the kitchen by a hot oven from January – April.
These are the tried and true recipes I keep on rotation.
Breakfast Sandwiches These are super easy to make and reheat. I add slices of ham to mine. You could add bacon or sausage rounds too.
Pancakes: whatever recipe you normally use you can do up a few batches of that and freeze them in-between parchment paper. Kids can grab them, throw them in the toaster and voila! Pancakes.
Other Stuff to Keep on hand:
Baked Goods: I always have a batch of muffins and a batch of cookies on hand for the kids to grab. Click here to read about my fav fall baked goods recipes.
Snacks from Costco: I stock up on Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars, Protein bars, Skinny popcorn, and pita bites from Costco. I also grab their to-go family chicken taco kits. Click here to read about my other Costco recommendations.
If you have any tried or true freezer meals recipes, I would love to hear about them in the comment section!
