When shopping for family members with different health needs or preferences, it helps to plan ahead. Here are three tips to help satisfy everyone.

  • Plan menus and grocery lists together. Include food options that everyone can enjoy.
  • Look at cookbooks, magazines or websites for meal ideas that meet your needs. 
  • Try a “do-it-yourself” meal, such as fajitas, tacos, sandwiches or salads. Just put all the ingredients on the table and let everyone assemble their favourite combo.
