In the juggle of parenthood, the time and energy we spend on ensuring our family are fed nourishing and appealing meals every single day is significant. Plan, shop, prepare, cook, clean … and repeat! To help you out on those days when you just need a quick and easy option, check out these fantastic dinner ideas for nutritious and kid-friendly meals that get the family fed fast (and don’t create too many dishes in the process!).
1. Vegetarian Spaghetti Bolognese with Quorn Mince
A delicious, vegetarian, and budget-friendly dinner idea that will leave your tastebuds dancing with delight! Spaghetti bolognese made with Quorn Mince is guaranteed to bring flavour to your table while keeping your wallet happy. Quorn mince is available in all major supermarkets.
This family favourite is just $5 per plate and serves 4.
4. Satay Chicken Noodle Salad
This recipe is so delicious – to make it even faster to prepare use the precooked noodles that just need heating in boiling water and a store-bought satay sauce.
If you wish, it’s OK to change out the salad component to whatever your family prefers. Serve up the components so everyone can curate their meal to suit their taste.
