BEFORE YOU SHOP
Here are a couple of quick, standard notes and disclaimers that will apply to most of our meal plans. While SOME recipes may be gluten-friendly or dairy-free or keto, these plans don’t typically follow any types of restrictions (except Lindsey, whose household is gluten-free.) Email us directly if you have any questions or refer to specific recipe creators where it applies.
Also, we mostly follow USDA recommendations when it comes to portion sizes for meat, etc. That means we stick to 3-4 ounce portions of chicken, beef, fish, etc. We try to stick with as much organic meat as possible, and that access can vary. If you get your hands on organic turkey, pork or other cuts of meat, feel free to sub in where desired. See FAQ for more.
These kid-friendly Aldi meals come out to about $10/dinner, but that doesn’t include tax. In West Virginia and Ohio, we don’t have a food sales tax, but Ali and Lindsey do in Tennessee, so keep that in mind when you are budgeting. Another disclaimer: Prices, product availability, and coupons will obviously vary from region to region.
Don’t Stress Too much
Finally, we all do the best we can when it comes to eating mostly organic, but we aren’t going to find every ingredient every time that’s organic. If you find something on our shopping list that you can’t get organic, simply do the best you can with your options. Conversely, if you CAN find something that’s organic that we have listed as “conventional” on the list, feel free to grab that option. If you need an updated list of what

I really love the idea of meal planning and I attempt every month. I just need to get more organized and find ways to cook quick meals after work and all the shenanigans in a day! Thank you for the great tips!
Great meal ideas. I’m personally not a fan of Aldi. I can manage to get from my favourite supermarket here in Australia. I reckon I could get all of the ingredients for those meals just as cheap from my supermarket. I’m going to keep some of these meal ideas in mind. Thanks for sharing!
Aldi is my favorite grocery store by far! So many amazing deals =) Thank you for sharing these kid friendly meals with us!
First time hearing about Aldi Dinner. This are great meal ideas. I do meal planning and love to stick to healthy food along with budget. I would love to try this if its available in state of Washington. Thanks for sharing.
I’ve been wanting to try Aldi and these meals look delicious! I’m goin to have to make them next week.
