There is nothing more soul destroying that coming home after a terrible day at the office, just wanting to get into a bath and order take-aways to feed the five thousand that call themselves your family, only to remember that not only is take away food generally very unhealthy for your offspring but it is also mid month and you can’t afford to pay attention let alone for Pizza. There are days when many of us just don’t have the energy to cook dinner so here are a few tips for days when you just can’t face an oven.

Double up. On days when you do cook always try to double up. Make a double spaghetti, or roast, double the amount of chicken then place it in the freezer. It’s quick to defrost in the microwave or if you know you will be home late that night then take it out of the freezer before you leave for work in the morning.

Have a Cook Fest. On a Sunday get everyone involved and plan a menu for the week ahead. Spend a few hours cooking as much as you can and freezing it, ready for the week ahead.

Sauces are a wonder and can transform a truly boring dish into a wonderful feast with minimal effort. Keep a few packets of different sauces in the house, or make extra on nights when you are making anyway, then freeze them till you want to use them. Basic noodles with a sauce will keep most kids happy as well as not being junk food for the kids. Noisy spouses can also generally be appeased this way.

Take Turns. Everyone in the house eats, so everyone in the house can take turns to cook. So your six year old serves everyone milk and peanut butter sandwiches, so what? Peanut butter is actually extremely healthy for you. Let them watch when you cook so they can get ideas. You will probably be amazed at the imagination your kids appear to possess, even when they ask you to eat jelly powder on peas.

Make preparation a time to chat to the kids. Get them to sit on a chair and help peel potatoes and talk about their days. You will be surprised how much you learn from these nightly sessions.

Cans are a good option as well, just read the labels clearly to make sure they contain all the good stuff for your kids and aren’t just junk-in-a-can.
