Children’s Meal Plan

Sometimes they eat with us, but these are meals which are simple enough to cook alongside another meal, when the grown-up food doesn’t appeal.

Most are made from components I can batch-cook and freeze, or are very very simple. I’ll post recipes where necessary.

With raw carrot, cucumber, fruit.
