21st century kids are fussier than ever about what they will and won’t eat, posing problems for parents who want to ensure their children eat well almost half of who admit to feeling under pressure from a fussy child to put certain things in their lunchboxes.
Obliging your child might avoid a temper tantrum but almost two thirds admit to including the same foods in their children’s lunchboxes from day to day, raising more worries about healthy eating.
Even if they steer away from the sweets, many children are still choosing the unhealthy chips and beans option at school. Food choices may have been more basic 20 years ago but they were also more natural and less processed. Over half of parents actually think that nutrition was better back in the day, when the most popular packed lunch was a cheese sandwich.
Celebrity chef Lesley Waters knows the challenges parents face and for that reason is offering parents a step-by-step guide to cooking up tasty but healthy treats for the family. Her recipes all include Edam to make sure kids get enough calcium as they grow and provide plenty of taste while also being nutritious, to keep everyone happy.
Lesley has put together two exclusive videos with each featuring a brand new recipe and Lesley’s expert advice on how to get the best results:
The first is Edam Beanburgers.
The second is Edam Cheesy Muffins.
Even if you are not worrying over what you children are consuming the videos are worth watching, Lesley is always entertaining, and offer an alternative way to use up that Edam. I for one have never used the cheese in cooking before.
