  • Decide the duration of the Menu Planner

It is important to confirm the duration for which you want to create a menu planner. It can be for one week, 15 days or for a whole month. Once you decide the time span for which you want to make a menu planner then for that time span you have to follow your menu plan.

Also keep in mind the nutritional value of different things and also add food items that are the important parts of a balanced diet like fish, meat, pulses etc. Along with the choices of your family members, keep in mind your comfort too, and never include food types that are time consuming and hard to cook in a single week. Moreover, consider the choice of your family as well as the nutritional values of different food items while creating a menu plan.

  • Make side Menu Plans for Emergencies

On a particular day, when you find you are not able to follow your meal plan because of any issue then opt for the side plan that will give you a hint to cook something simple and quick. Such plans are very useful for working women.

  • Paste the Menu Plan in your Kitchen
