Lovely leftovers

If you’ve cooked too much, try to use the leftovers for another meal. To help, it might be worth keeping your fridge, freezer and cupboard stocked with basic food staples so you can rustle something up when you need to and use items up e.g. pasta, stock cubes, and bread.

Children don’t always like what they’re given so having a range of food items at hand to make different meals is important to satisfy their taste buds and keep them interested in what they are eating.
