Mid Term Break: Are You Ready?

  wpcrualaoi   No Comments

Halloween and the mid-term break are upon us already, and families up and down Ireland are planning an exciting week of fun together. At Ó Crualaoí, we’re here to help you get through the week, and we know that planning ahead will make it easier for busy parents to stay ahead of the game.

When the schools are out, the routine changes and it sometimes feels easier to grab an unhealthy option. Feeding your family well doesn’t have to be stressful, though, and getting the kids involved in the process can be a great way to keep them busy during the holidays, too! Check out our kid’s colouring competition at the end of this post for another great way to keep your youngsters occupied this week…

Healthy Meal Ideas From Ó Crualaoi

Finding new and inspiring recipes that your family will love is easier when you can access great ideas online. Take a look at the delicious recipes here, and explore some great, family-friendly options for all.

Getting involved with the cooking is a great way for the kids to keep busy and learn new skills during the break, and we recommend starting with delicious family meals that they love to eat. Pop along to your local Ó Crualaoí store and talk to one of our butchers about your options, they’ll always be happy to share ideas and recommendations, and your little ones will be delighted to help with the shopping, too.

Great Family Recipes For Kids

How about teaching the children to cook your family favourites? You could try the following ideas:

Shepherd’s pie. Shepherd’s pie includes plenty of veggies to chop together and you can teach the kids how to create a delicious meal from great quality ingredients such as our tasty mince.

Stir fry. We have several healthy meat options to add to stir fry, and this is a quick-cook meal that the kids will love to create. Anything that involves a lot of chopping is ideal for kids as they can be helpful and develop vital life skills at the same time.

Burgers. It’s always a good time to show your kids that not all burgers are equal. We love the feedback that tells us our healthy burgers are delicious, and we know that the kids will enjoy a taste test, too!

Always remember to wash hands thoroughly when cooking, and talk to your children about the importance of following the recommendations for storing and cooking meat safely.

Halloween Colouring Competition

If your children are at home for the holidays, you can keep them busy with our Halloween Colouring Competition. You can pop in and pick up a colouring sheet, or download yours online here. The lucky winner will receive vouchers from Air-tastic Trampoline Park in Little Island, another great place to use up some energy during the mid-term break!
