Healthy Back to School Meal Ideas

September can be a very busy month. After a relaxing summer, it’s time to once again set the alarm for an early morning start. Making lunches; rushing out the door for the bus or to get the kids to school; after school piano lessons or sports practices; a quick dinner and then swimming lessons or a hockey game.  Then time to go home and do the bedtime routine, to get up and do it all again tomorrow.

Often times we start the Back to School season with good intentions of healthy eating and home cooked meals, but quickly find ourselves in line at the drive-thru before practice.

That’s where Familia Fine Foods can help. We can help you stick to the healthy eating and home cooked meals but we’ll do all the work. You just heat & serve.

Our chicken fajitas kit is always a fave and comes with flour tortillas and mozzarella cheese. Or try one of our Beef Stew that is perfect for those crisp fall nights. Pick up a side of mashed potatoes at Familia and you can toss a quick salad at home and dinner is served!




Our Brazilian chicken or pork stroganoff is a quick weeknight meal when you’re on the go. Pair it with some steamed white rice and you’re good to go! Our coconut curry chicken, sweet potato & chickpea stew is made with love and with some rice and a tossed salad will have your family thinking you spent hours in the kitchen!

Familia Fine Foods can also help you with Back to School lunches. Our chicken tenders are a fave for kids of all ages and can be sent in a thermos to keep warm for lunchtime. Our kids love the Alfredo pasta bake, we warm it up at home and put it in a thermos and send them with a fork and it gives them a warm healthy lunch midday. Lots more lunch ideas on our website!

We can’t forget the older kids who are back to school too – at university or college in residence or living off campus. Send them some of our Familia 

meals for one so they can enjoy the flavours of homemade cooking.  Chicken stir fry with rice; meatloaf with mashed potatoes and veggies or coconut curry chicken with rice to name a few.  These meals come in a microwaveable container that is also compostable.

Don’t forget that Familia delivers, so give us a call if you have any questions or you can place your order on our website.  Wishing you a great Back to School season!
