woolworths salads mom answers 1

On ‘after school care’ nights, I really struggle to make anything healthy because I’m in a rush. What do other Mums do to get some meat & veges into the kids?

Ask your question
  • Spaghetti with meat and veg in.


  • Another quick one is just a plate of pasta with pesto sauce.


  • Fried rice. You can make them with frozen veggies.


  • You could prepare a big salad by mixing a can of chickpeas, a can of borlotti beans, a can of tuna, some diced capsicum and cherry tomatoes. Quick and easy.


  • Stir fry, home made pizzas, spag bol with added pureed vegies into the sauce, home made hamburgers, curried sausages


  • I find make fritters a great way to get the veggies in as they seem to think they are a treat
    For meat home made burgers and meatloaf always interest my 2


  • I would go with vegie patties or stir fry.


  • Spag bol is great you can whip it up in half an hour and add mushrooms, sliced or grated carrot and zucchini. Or crumbed packet fish with chips and
    Salad or exchange chips for potato in jackets.


  • To get veggies into my littlest one, I usually just boil some pasta (Coles have the dinosaur shaped hi fibre one) and add in some pulsed up veggies, tomato paste, basil, garlic and cheese. 10 minute meal :)


  • Pre prep where possible and pick one day a week where you pre prep or pre cook a week of meals. Slow cookers are your best friend as healthy meals are easy in that and you can go out for hours and leave it. Involve kids in healthy pizza meals making their own with pita bread or wraps and only offer healthy options and they can make their own healthy dinner.


  • I meal prep our meals for the week. Cook a big batch of two meals to altinate during the week and freeze a couple to use on those really busy days


  • I always think that popping some frozen wedges & frozen corn on the cob in the oven, some scrambled eggs & cut up cucumber & strips of capsicum is quick and nutritious enough (you could add some chicken wings or so in the oven when you’re into meat eating)


  • Some frozen veg, pre cut chicken, some Chang’s noodles and a jar of stir fry sauce. Done :) hehe


  • Chicken nuggets and salad. You ca make your own in advance and freeze then just chuck in oven and serve with a simple salad. Or store bought in the meat aisle. I even accidentally bought plant based chicken nuggets in a rush one night… master 5 did not even notice!! So extra veg in that night :)


  • 2 words. SLOW COOKER. They are a life saver. Prep the night before chuck it on in the morning and don’t stress about it.
