Freezer Meal Planning

When your week gets a little crazy, making meals in advance can be a real life saver especially with kids. Get ahead by stocking the freezer with pre-made meals. When it’s time to eat, easily cook or re-heat with little hassle.

Here are some tips and tricks to help preserve your food with care, avoid freezer burn, prevent unpleasant odors and contaminating other foods in the freezer.

  • Use specialty freezer wrappings
  • Permanent freezer markers are convenient for labelling foods with the food name and use-by date
  • Leave as little air as possible in the packages and containers
  • Wrap solid foods such as meats and baked goods tightly in foil before you bag them
  • Use rigid containers with an air-tight lid
  • Secure wrapped packages and containers with freezer tape
  • Ensure the food you are freezing has cooled completely
  • Never re-freeze anything that’s been frozen
