September Monthly Meal Plan – Family of 4

Sharing is caring!

September is busy and we are in need of a super simple meal plan. Below you will find our September Monthly Meal Plan for our family of 4. Monthly meal planning is one of the most important habits I have to make my busy life a little easier.

What about Breakfast and Lunch?

I don’t plan our breakfasts and lunches. Our children are 12 and 14 and are pretty independent with these meals. I just make sure we have basic supplies on hand so they can help themselves. In the summer I need to really keep some extra food on hand, especially for the 12-year-old; he is growing so fast and eats 5 meals a day!

We like to keep breakfast basics on hand like, eggs, toast, pancake mix, oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, and berries.

Hot breakfast meals I like to make occasionally:

Lunch basics we keep on hand:

During the school year, the kids eat at school and I use ideas from my School Lunch Idea List HERE.

I do keep some basic lunch items on hand like lunchmeat, cheeses, bread or wraps, chicken salad, tuna salad, hardboiled eggs, soups, and frozen pizzas.
