Need some inspiration for quick and easy meals once the kids go back to school? 

We’ve rounded up some tips from some of our favorite family foodies, along with five tried and tested recipes to make healthy meals a breeze for you and your troops…


“Getting the kids involved in preparing dinner has been the best way to encourage them to eat more vegetables! They love to taste ingredients - a tomato slice here, a spoonful of cauliflower there - as we prepare the meal together. And they're all the more excited to eat the food that they've just helped prepare.” 


“Have your meal staples on hand. Lentils, chickpeas, legumes, potatoes, vegetables, rice. Delegate jobs in the kitchen, even the children can help with tasks like cutting and washing produce. Prepare big portions for leftovers the next day. Learn the laws of food storage. Make one pot meals. Plan ahead!” 


“Making sure I get enough vegetables and goodness in all of our meals whilst keeping them tasty and interesting is always the aim! I like to experiment to ensure my daughter is introduced to lots of new flavours.”


“I like to chop veggies up really small and blend them into sauces for the kids. It’s a great way to get a bit of extra nourishment in.” 


“I am always on the lookout for quick & delicious ways to feed the kids after school. I love riced veggies for convenience and use them to make sweet potato muffins, egg fried rice and cauliflower tabbouleh (my daughter’s favourite).” 


“Chop veg up really small or blitz it and mix it amongst other favourite ingredients. And let the kids get involved in the kitchen! My 2 boys (now 10 and 6 years) have been involved from an early age. They help to wash vegetables, peel and chop. If they know they've helped to make it, they are more likely to eat it!”


“My favourite hack is making extra portions of dinner so that my kids can eat it the next day, which saves me cooking twice! You can make kids meals even quicker and easier by serving the leftovers with healthy options like Fullgreen Riced Cauliflower. The best bit is the kids won’t even realise they are eating extra veggies!” 


These five dishes have been tried, tested and approved by the Fullgreen team and are a big hit with kids. You can prep them the night before or freeze in advance, so you’ve got a balanced meal to hand on those days when time is tight.
