Thoughtful living: Cooking for children!

Do you ever look at recipes or a menu on the internet which is meant to be for all the family and just think I wish my child would eat that! Monday to Thursday I generally feed six children and after 3 years I have developed a 4 week cycle of food which seems to work for us. My menu is far from perfect but I thought I’d share my menu because if you are anything like me you are always looking for new ideas.

Menu 2

Jacket potato with beans and cheese or tuna and sweetcorn

Chicken korma with rice and naan

Pasta carbonara

Sausages in pitta with potato wedges beans or cucumber and tomato.


Menu 3

Menu 4

I have gradually moved away from pre bought sauces and I would like to continue to have a go at cooking more from scratch.

What are your favourite family recipes? What would you add to my menu? Would your child eat this menu?
