    For me I was lucky enough to be a SAHM for the first four years and had tons of family around so I had plenty of time for cooking and meal planning , and yes I made big batches of falafel, crab cakes , pizza dough and slices and froze them in portions - now I'm back at work most of his lunchbox meals are fresh fruit, veggies and I just poach chicken or turkey for wraps or and make mini muffins or frittatas on Sunday's and freeze

    I didn't realise you could freeze felafel! Do you freeze them after cooking? How do you reheat??

    Sorry to derail!

    I've done both - frozen raw then defrost and cook and frozen cooked and either eaten at room temp or very quick warm up in microwave or oven

    I generally do big batches of all those things I listed (except things like omelette, oats) and freeze in zip lock bags then each night I take out a variety of things for the next day. So today she had a mini spinach quiche, beef rissole and chia fruit muesli slice (all from the freezer) and yoghurt for lunch. My DD is almost 1 I do my baking either if she is asleep or when she's awake I can make something quick and entertain her in the kitchen at the same time.
    When my DD was younger she was a day catnapper so I just did what I could or did a big batch at night or on the weekend.

    I batch cooked when all 3 of mine were just starting solids. I'd cook a heap of meals one day a week, then portion them all out. But mine were on purees/baby food long. DS2 particularly wanted finger food from very early on so he just ate what we did.
