I love to cook and enjoy meals as a family, but sometimes our busy schedule doesn’t allow for a lot of time to accomplish both. With three young children and a crazy busy schedule, I’ve found that there are two simple things that help us have a great family meal.
1) Meal Solutions
2) Family Time Around the Table
As any busy parent know, you MUST have a plan going into dinner to help you save time. Schwan’s Food Delivery is my time-saving solution—making it easy for me to ensure that I get a prepared meal on the table AND have the time to spend with my kids.

Schwans.com makes it so simple to order high-quality food right to your door.
Heated in the oven or in a single skillet, these foods will make meal-time worry and rush a thing of the past! The convenience of Schwan’s means that there is always a great meal in my freezer, ready to be prepped in under 30 minutes. Added to that, they are delivered to your door.
The meals have that ‘homemade feel,” use high quality ingredients and offer tons of great options for balanced meals. And yes, they even have plenty of kid and picky-eater friendly options!
What I love the most is there’s no membership or contract. I just visit Schwans.com and we pick what want to enjoy in our family meals. My kids love having the choice and help cook whenever possible.
Family Time Around the Table
With your meal in place, getting your kids to stick around and chat gets harder and harder as they get older. Use family conversation cards that you buy or make. (We have both!) It can be a lot of fun and a great way to spark conversation amongst siblings or between children and parents.
For this meal, we’re enjoying one of our favorite meals from Schwan’s: Chicken Lo Mein Skillet Meal. It is like takeout without the expense or wait. You can just tell the ingredients are high quality, with big pieces of chicken and vegetables that are fresh-frozen.
The package is cooked in one skillet, so my meal prep and cleanup is super simple.
Preparing the Chicken Lo Mein Skillet meal means I can spend more time talking with my kids and using our dinner cards! Ask them how school was and you may get a shrug or a “fine” but if a card asks to share one funny story about school that day, you’d be surprised how fast they are telling you all about their day.
How does your family do meal time? What would you most like to try from Schwan’s around your family dinner table?
