Healthy family meals

Determined to make THIS the year you all eat more healthily as a family? We know it’s no easy task, especially the idea of cooking after a tiring day, and particularly in the challenging year that’s found us in lockdown and STILL trying to eat well. But, serving healthy family meals doesn’t need to mean loads of effort on the part of the cook, or using tricky ingredients.

We’ve pulled together our fail-safe dinner ideas in this collection to inspire you.

How about our chicken and veg traybake to get you started? It uses one roasting pan, and is ready in around 35 minutes.
