How to Make a Menu Planner in Apple Pages

Whether you’re closely watching your own nutrition or keeping your restaurant up-to-date with the latest culinary trends, putting together a concise meal itinerary is always a huge benefit. With that being said, you can achieve this without breaking a sweat by making use of our Ready-Made Menu Planner Templates!

And, with the help of Apple Pages, using your Mac computer to edit our menu planner templates is a breeze! However, we understand that not everyone is tech-savvy, which is why we have a simple yet thorough guide for you to follow down below.

1. Install Apple Pages

As someone who owns a Mac desktop, Apple Pages serves as an efficient editing tool while maintaining a streamlined approach for you to easily use; with the added bonus of being free! If you don’t have Pages installed yet, simply pay a visit to Apple’s online App Store and download it from there.

If you ever need to edit your templates while you’re out and about, Pages is available to access on your iOS device of choice! Pages even has inherent usability with Apple Pencil, allowing for a more natural-feeling way to work.

2. Choose and Download a Template

We have a healthy selection of food-related documents that can come in handy; if you own a restaurant or a catering service, then you’ll be interested in our food menu templates. However, to download one of our Ready-Made Menu Planner Templates, pick one from this page and click on its respective thumbnail; a new browser tab will open up. On the new tab, use the provided download button and follow a few quick steps to save your chosen template file onto your computer/device storage.

Additionally, on the template’s page, you can find out more about the file by reading the “Template Details” section (to your right) and zooming in on the preview images (to your left).

3. Turn on Apple Pages and Start Planning

With your shiny new template downloaded, it’s time to rack your brain and get organized. Open the template in Pages and input all the necessary information as you work to sort out your plan. Make sure the font is easily readable by picking an appropriate style and color, especially if the planner is meant not just for your own eyes to see. The premade layout of your menu planner template allows you to input a variety of different aspects to your plan (timetable, budget, shopping list, etc.), so be as informative as possible!

You can also choose to print out the template as is if you prefer to write on a personal copy by hand. However, be sure to use a pen or pencil of good quality for optimal readability; write legibly, as well.

4. Update When Needed

It’s possible that you’ll have to make certain changes to your plans, so it’s a good idea to have your planner (and a pen/pencil) with you often. And, since Apple Pages is available on iOS, even a digital copy can be kept updated whenever and wherever needed.

Be it daily, weekly, or monthly, you can keep a well-organized menu planner of any format with Apple Pages and our diverse array of templates!
