Over 40 to go recipes for parents and kids so you can eat healthy meals on busy days. You can get to games, lessons AND still have a great dinner.
How many times a week do you normally have dinner on the go? Since we’ve been in lock down for over 2 months, my family has eaten every single meal at our house. I don’t think that has ever happened. It’s really nice and weird at the same time.

My husband and I are usually running all over the place to get our kids to practices and games.
My son plays on a lacrosse team that’s over an hour away. During the school year, they practice on Sundays. Once summer is here, they practice several times a week.
When he first joined the team, they were eating a lot of fast food or stopping at the gas station. I put an end to that real fast. It’s so unhealthy and expensive.
These recipes are perfect for when they travel. It’s also great so I can take food to my high schooler during a track meet or dropping off my daughter at soccer.
