Convenient Dinner Solutions for Busy Active Kids #CountOnCor #OvenTimeTips #ad

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of On-Cor. The opinions and text are all mine.

How do you manage meal time with a busy family that has tons of obligations during the dinner hour? From cooking to cleaning to carpooling sometimes I feel like it never stops. And as my kids get older, their schedules get even more hectic – during what I find to be the dinner “witching hour” of all sports practices and meal time hitting between 5-8 pm!  And my daughters schedule is even more rigorous and demanding since she’s in middle school. More swim practices and more homework mean we need to be super organized to manage our time – from household chores to homework to meal planning.  Kenzie Fly 2016 states  So I’m all about convenient dinner options for our family like those from On-Cor. Finding easy to prepare frozen entrées that I can mix and match with veggies and salads at home to cut down on my “prep” and cooking time plus easy store, save, and re-heat for dinners on the fly at different times for each child is key. 

Fueling My Athletes

My kids, like so many children today, are super busy with athletics during the dinner hour. This means beyond healthy eating,  I’m also always looking for tricks to easily juggle meal time around swim practice. I need something I can prep easily and also re-heat and serve since most weeknights I need to feed each kiddo at a different time in the evening. My son even likes to eat 2 dinners – a small one before swim practice and then post swim practice he’s starving and he wants the leftovers from dinner!  kyle swim Bonus: I love to be able to serve up any of these easy frozen On-Cor entrées in a pretty dish. Why give the illusion that my food took longer to prepare?  IMG_8032

Food Storage, Cleaning Tools, Calendars, and Chore Charts For the Win

We’re giving away some cute kid style cleaning tools and kitchen goodies for Mom thanks to On-Cor in our prize package below. Entry details are at the bottom of this post.  IMG_8028 Finding lots of convenient ways to store food – from basic ingredients to dinner leftovers that we need to reheat helps keep the kitchen run more smoothly. And when it comes to scheduling – calendars are essential to reminding us all where we need to be and when we need to be there!  Cute cleaning tools can motivate the kids to clean up too! Kyle is in charge of sweeping up our kitty Stitch’s messy food and litter box so he loves this kid sized dust broom and pan.  IMG_4864

Nutritional Details on On-Cor

I’m all about feeding the kids fresh fruits and veggies but I love being able to compliment mealtime with a convenient solution for those active sports weeknights dealing with practices and even summer swim meets in the evenings.

The positive news is that you can get a frozen prepared meals like those from On-Cor and feel good about ingredients. For instance,  On-Cor entrées have no monosodium glutamate (MSG) added. Plus, meals like the Macaroni & Cheese entrée along with the Lasagna with Meat Sauce, use 100 percent real cheese.

I’m always trying to sneak more protein into my kiddos diets too. They are growing fast and given our convenience style of cooking dinners with our active sports schedules, protein is often forgotten!

If you are looking for more protein, On-Cor entrées now have 20 percent more meat, including Salisbury Steak, Sliced Turkey and Char-Broiled Patties. The Penne Pasta & Meatballs with Tomato Sauce entrée now has 25 percent more meat too. Yay!!!

For your next family meal, head to the freezer aisle of  your local ACME or check out  where to buy

    They have a few breaded entrees that look great, but I prefer the ones without breading because the breaded ones can potentially be soggy.
