Seven items that
you need to look
   at before
planning meals.
             Family Size:

   This affects the amount of money
    needed, the preparation time, and the
    style of table service preferred.
                 Age:

   Babies, children, teenagers and
    parents need different foods and
    don’t eat the same amount.
          Activity Level:

   Activity Level: With more exercise,
    the body requires more energy.
       Food Preferences:

   Food Preferences: All families don’t
    like the same kinds of foods because
    of culture and traditions.
                  Time:

   Time: Recipes vary greatly in
    preparation time required. When
    there is little time, fix foods requiring
    little time.
           Special Diets:

   Special Diets: Health considerations
    such as diabetes, high blood pressure,
    lactose intolerance, ulcer, stroke, and
    heart problems influence what people
    eat. What are some examples of
    foods some people must limit and
    why?
          Food Budget:

   Food Budget: If money is limited,
    foods from basic ingredients prepared
    from scratch may be a better choice
    than fast food or convenience foods.
    Some families don’t realize this and
    the fact that they could help
    themselves out of a trying financial
    situation with their food budget.
        Time Management
   Organize kitchen
   Assemble all ingredients before beginning
   Work on several items at the same time (dovetail)
   Clean up as you go
   Implementing time-saving shopping strategies
   Preparing larger quantities of food at one time and
    freezing some for later
   Evaluate the use of convenience foods to save time;
    may increase expense and lower quality
   At times the time saved may be of greater value
    than the additional expense
     Budgeting and Shopping Strategies to
                Meal Management

   prepare a shopping list - group similar foods
    together to be efficient
   check cupboards/pantry to avoid duplication
   familiarize yourself with the store layout
   comparison shopping - compare unit prices and
    cost per serving
   avoid damaged goods and frozen packages with
    ice crystals on outside
   check dates on the package

            to Meal Management
   stick to the list to avoid impulse buying
   shop alone
   avoid shopping when hungry or tired
   limit shopping trips - the more trips to the store
    the more money spent
   purchase what you can use and store
   quantity buying can benefit if the item is used
    frequently
   take advantage of sales of frequently used items;
    case lot sales
   buy foods in season for best prices
   using a calculator while shopping can help keep

The Cost of Convenience
                 Eating Out
   more and more meals are eaten outside the
    home or prepared and brought into the
    home
   greater variety of types of foods are
    available; keep in mind the food pyramid and
    dietary guideline
   fast food meals often are higher in fat and
    salt than home-prepared meals
   portion sizes may be larger which often
    encourages overeating
   on a limited budget reducing the amount of
    food eaten out can save money
