Nutrition Tip of the Month

Meal Planning

After spending most of the day at work, we rush to pick up our children, take them to after-school activities, and finally arrive home, only to open the refrigerator door thinking, “What’s for dinner?” At this point, getting take-out seems like the perfect answer. Sound familiar? Brenner FIT helps families learn how to plan meals ahead of time.  Join Katie Maxey, Registered Dietitian with Brenner FIT, to hear about meal planning tips that can help you and your family.
