4) Create an Emergency Plan
You like to think your family is safe and that nothing bad will ever happen. The odds of an emergency are fairly low, but it still pays to be prepared. As this year gets going, sit down as a family and come up with a plan for an emergency. Decide what you'll do in the case of a fire, flood, blizzard or other natural disaster. Work together to create an emergency kit with food, snacks, kids water bottles etc that you can keep on hand, just in case.
5) Eat Healthier
Busy families often rely on convenience foods or takeaway when time gets tight. Not only is this not healthy, but it can really affect your budget quickly. Commit to cooking for dads, which means eating more at home by prepping foods on the weekend and putting together a list of meals that you can throw together quickly when needed. Keep more fruits and vegetables at home so that everyone is encouraged to eat them more often.
It’s also a brilliant way to encourage sustainable living by encouraging the children to get involved in helping you prepare the ingredients where they can, and also get them learning about where the ingredients are grown from (I.e. not just from the Supermarket or online!).
