I LOVE it when my mum comes to stay. I love it even more when she cooks us dinner and I don’t have to think about a thing.
My mum and sister came to visit us last week and on their last night here my mum made this delicious bolognese.
It’s so simple and easy and is packed full of nutrients for growing little tummies.
Plus it will keep you warm on those cold winter nights.
Broccoli is my go-to staple whenever any of us are sick. It’s a powerhouse of vitamin C and stacked with other vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, iron, vitamin K, B-complex vitamins, zinc, phosphorus and phyto-nutrients.
We’ve all been horribly sick over the past few days and now that our stomachs are able to handle any food I wanted to pack as many bug-fighting nutrients as I could into one dish to help us continue on the path to recovery.
Not only has this pasta got hidden broccoli, but it has also got some sneaky spinach in there too which is a great source of iron and loaded with antioxidants.
I love pasta. But more importantly, I love an EASY and QUICK dinner option.
Now that I’m back at work full-time some nights it’s absolutely crazy trying to get something healthy and delicious on the table for all of us.
This pasta is so quick to whip up, tastes delicious and is full of nutrients for growing little bodies. It’s also a great lunch option too for when you want something different than a boring sandwich.
Lasagne is such a good family dish. Every time I eat it it I think of a big Italian family sitting down for a feast.
This lasagne isn’t as naughty as most other versions and is packed with loads of hidden vegetables.
It’s also perfect for freezing in individual portions to make for quick lunch/dinners during the week.
In addition to lamb, spinach and kale are fantastic sources of iron, which is needed by growing little bodies. Per calorie, kale contains more iron than beef.
Molly isn’t the only one in our household that absolutely adores this dish. My husband gobbles it up in a flash and almost always asks for seconds.
It’s designed as a finger food alternative to meatballs. Molly has been fiercely independent when it comes to feeding herself right from the start so I came up with the idea for these when I was searching for easy finger foods to make.
The sauce is super tasty and quick to prepare and the fingers are soft enough that even without teeth Molly was able to suck away on them and still get off bits of meat. They also have hidden veggies in the fingers which is always a winner when it comes to kids.
