Better Meals with Better Planning Learning Lesson

The Self-Learning segments provide an in-depth look at important topics within each of the Families, Food, and Fitness areas. Each learning area is made up of multiple sections that may take more time than other material on the site to complete. Because the learning areas present more information, we suggest you set aside 15 – 30 minutes to enjoy the full benefit of each Self-Learning segment.


So, how do you prepare quick & healthy meals? Why should you even plan at all? Better meal planning provides families with a better variety of meal choices, more nutritious meals, a significant cost savings to the family budget, and promote families having more meals at home.

In this lesson, you will:

  • Plan and prepare thrifty, timesaving, wholesome meals as part of a healthy lifestyle.
  • Develop and individualized menu system.
  • Become an organized shopper.
  • Save time in food preparation without giving up good nutrition.
