Several people have asked me for the workshop details for the Wildtree Kid Friendly Freezer Meal Workshop. Now, most kids have different tastes, so I tried to provide a variety of basic foods kids might like. Nobody eats fish? Use chicken! Nobody likes lemon rosemary blend? Try lemon pepper! You really can mix and match to your tastes. Don’t want to do steak? Combine them in ground beef to make burgers! These are recipes I have put on this website or made in the past and simply adapted them to a freezer workshop.
We really did do this in less than two hours. Good work girls! It was one hour of prepping the food into the bags. I timed the workshop and we took 65 minutes to assemble everything including eat snacks and talk.

**Extra Ingredients/Hostess Ingredients ** I have had a number of inquiries regarding this workshop with Wildtree. When doing this workshop yourself, you simply purchase everything on the shopping list (or raid the pantry of course!). When doing this workshop as a group, page 2 lists the regular shopping list AND the hostess/representative ingredients that they bring to the workshop for everyone to use. They are pretty standard items like chicken broth, milk, salt and pepper, etc.
**Please contact me, or your local Wildtree representative, for more documents for the friendly kid meals workshop. Thank you so much!
STEP TWO: These are the recipes. You have all your bags ready to go. Simply add the few Wildtree ingredients you have to the bags. Don’t have Wildtree? You can make them or substitute what you have at home.
STEP THREE: Once you have completed the recipe, you slap on one of these stickers. Print this out on sticker paper (I used full sheet, but I’m sure it would work on the Avery labels as well) and slap it on the bag. Try to keep the bag dry where you adhere the sticker. Sometimes they wanted to come off when it was damp.
STEP FOUR: Hang this on your fridge! You will know what is in your freezer and also know how long something will take to cook. So, if you are short on time, then you could do easy tacos. If you are really short on prep time, try the pulled pork. If you have more time to prep, make the yummy meatball sandwiches! I loved having this when I did freezer meals!! Such a big time saver.
Some Tips for Freezing:
1. Try to remove as much air as possible to avoid freezer burn.
2. Lay everything flat in the freezer. This will save space and also speed up the thawing process.
