When you have a family, it helps to have a good supply of food, but navigating the supermarket can be a confusing experience – especially with all of the tempting treats, clever marketing, confusing labels and huge variety of choice available to us these days. Shopping is also one of those tasks that most would rather not have to do too often with small children in tow. To help you get on your way to having a well-stocked supply of healthy meal and snack options, Anna has broken down the storage areas of the kitchen and made lists of essentials to keep on hand in each one. Her suggestions may inspire you to try something new. She also has plenty of practical ideas to ensure you always have good food at the ready to answer that ubiquitous cry of parenting – "I'm hungry!". Once you have filled your kitchen, keep tabs on what is running low and simply restock that item in the next week's shopping trip.
