You’re in the right place. Here are 5 of our favourite tips for planning healthy meals when you’re a busy mum on a budget.
Your body, lifestyle, and situation are unique to you. So, adapt your diet to match! This is especially important for mums who are pregnant or if you’re breastfeeding your baby. After all, you need to sustain two people with your diet! So, make sure you get a customisable meal plan suitable for pregnant women or a program that can adapt to your needs as a breastfeeding mum.
Become a meal prep pro…
Ever come home from work, a shopping trip, or a day out with the kids and just grabbed takeaway because you had no time or energy to cook? Yep, we’ve all been there. It’s not the best option for our health OR our bank accounts. That’s why the best way to stay on track with your weight loss meal plan is to plan ahead and meal prep so you’ve always got something in the fridge or freezer that’s ready to go.
It’s always easier to achieve a goal (like sticking to your healthy meal plan!) when you’ve got someone doing it with you. Surround yourself with a tribe of other mums who want to make positive, healthy changes in their lives too. You’ll always have a safe place to share your wins (and struggles) and get a boost when you need it. Plus, you’ll be able to see what’s possible for you and your family because others have done it too.
Change up your ingredients…
Do you ever get bored with cooking the same old meals? It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with recipes and ingredients – same old, same old. Sometimes, finding new recipes can inspire you to make healthier choices and cook meals that are good for you and that your whole family is happy to eat.

Embrace the tech…
These days, there are plenty of tools you can use to make it easier than ever to follow a weight loss meal plan. The Healthy Mummy app, for example, helps you manage your recipes, meal plan, and shopping lists on-the-go (so you never end up at the shops without a list again).
