Task 3: Develop a menu plan

Step 1: Read through the many recipes and meal suggestions you will find in the following website. Select some breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snack options. Add these meals to the shopping list in the Meals Matter website. Print the recipes that you choose. Write out a menu that lists all of the foods you have decided on. This will be your menu plan.

Step 2: Carefully review your menu plan. Do you meet the daily requirements each day?

Step 4: Once you are pleased with your menu, print a final copy of it.
