Feeding Your Family Made Easy

Planning and preparing family meals can be time consuming and stressful, and making changes to the way you do this can set you up for success. Here are our top tips:

  1. Focus on packed lunches- You’ll feel great knowing that your child is heading off to school each day with a nutritious and healthy lunch, so it’s well worth planning ahead to save time and worry. Plan to make extra when you are cooking an evening meal, so that your child can take the leftovers the following day, and base lunchboxes around healthy proteins, such as those in our Real Food For Fitness range.
  2. Introduce healthier options- You’ll feel great knowing that you are giving your family the very best quality food, and our product range is designed to give you this confidence. Try our excellent mince to make several delicious meals, or check out our recipe section to find new ideas. 
  3. Fill your freezer- Meal planning and freezing meals ahead of time can be a great time saver, and you can relax in the knowledge that you have great food on hand whenever you need it. Cooking in bulk works well for many family friendly dishes, such as bolognaise sauce, shepherd’s pies and lasagnes, and our freezer range includes options that every member of the family will enjoy. 
  4. Share the load- Although some members of the family may be working longer hours than others, it is still important to share the load when it comes to feeding the family. Challenge each member of the family to come up with a meal that they would like to try, and take turns to cook, encouraging even the youngest children to get involved and learn these vital skills.
