Weekly Family Meal Recipes: August Means Summer Treats and Back-to-School Eats

01, August 2016 9:00 AM

A gust of wind might be a welcome relief from the sky high temperatures in store for this August. Lucky for us, high heat means plenty of summer treats from the farmers' markets and backyard garden. 

As you and your family start to examine your back-to-school schedule, don't forget that a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast are just as important as new backpacks when it comes to school supplies. We'll help remind you to plan on regular family dinners and back-to-school breakfasts with recipes that kids can help make.

Be sure to visit the Family Meal Planning page for more information, tips and resources.
