My Newest Obsession with Balanced Family Academy

I love to cook - trying new recipes, baking with my kids, you name it and I love it.  But that doesn’t mean I’m always great at it. :-) Ask my kids about the day I tried to make lasagna with broccoli and they will tell you how delicious the pizza was that we ordered shortly after they all refused to eat a second bite.

It is important to me that I give my kids the opportunity to try new foods even if I’m not great at cooking them. Which is why I’m so thankful that at my son’s school they offer made from scratch meals throughout the day and even allow us the opportunity to order a meal for our home every Wednesday evening.

Wednesdays are actually the busiest days of the week for us so it works out so perfectly. Every Sunday I get an email with that week’s menu with a link to order, I easily submit how many servings I need for that week and submit my payment info. It takes one meal off of my rotation each week and I know that the food is not only delicious but it’s good for us. Much better than that midweek drive thru as we rush to get everything done.  


Balanced Family Academy has been such a blessing for our family since the end of last year and we can’t thank them enough for the hard work they pour into every single thing they do to promote community within the school including the amazing Whisk Prep Kitchen.  

Whisk Prep Kitchen.

Their menu focus on seasonal ingredients sourced from local farmers as often as possible and they source organically-grown produce. The milk that is produced without the use of rBST or rBGH, and meats are hormone and antibiotic free. Those are just a few key pieces to what sets Whisk Prep Kitchen and Balanced Family Academy apart.

Some of the things my son loves most on the menu for lunch -

Chicken apple chili, scrambled eggs, Hawaiian meatballs, teriyaki tofu (something he never would have tried if I made it at home) and basically any cracker or muffin. He is my kid after all :-)


One of the meals we recently ordered was the spaghetti and meatballs, with fresh garden salad, and baguette.  It happened to be my daughter’s birthday and between work and the crazy weather (SO many snow days this year) I was just behind in so many things so when I picked up my son from BFA I checked the refrigerator and luckily they had a few extra meals so I grabbed them for my family and we were able to enjoy the baby’s birthday dinner without stress.  It was such a lifesaver.

If you’re looking for a childcare facility for your children I can’t recommend BFA enough.  I’m actually really picky with care for my kids and it takes me forever before I can trust someone else to care for them but with BFA it just felt right. I’m sure as a parent you know important that feeling is.  If you ever have any questions about BFA I’m more than happy to answer - shoot me an email or comment below.
