Dinner time. Pretty much the most chaotic time of our day.
It is loud, it is messy and it can often be all kinds of frustrating.
We have one brilliant eater, Holly our second born 17-month-old. Let’s face it do second, third, fourth children have any choice but to fit in and get on with it?
We have one very fussy eater, Luke our first born three-year-old. Luke was born with Down Syndrome and thus has some sensory issues, particularly when it comes to food. His food critique levels would make Gordon Ramsay blush.
As a result, as a busy mom of two, I find meal planning and preparation very stressful. Am I providing the right nutrients, the right balance between all of the food groups, and yet delicious and enticing meals for my kids? That mom guilt is ever present, but that’s a topic of discussion for another time.

We as a family have been big fans of wearefood ever since the launch of their family run business in 2013. Their wholesome, tasty and affordable frozen dishes have been, and continue to be a staple in our freezer.
Their new range of Mini Meals are all of the above and so much more.
With choices such as Tomato Gnocchi, Ham Alfredo and Fish Pie to name a few, these little 200g tubs of deliciousness have helped to alleviate meal time frustrations in the Roberts’ household.
I love the fact that they can be heated up from frozen, because let’s face it, every two minutes matter during the hours of 5 and 6pm.
Holly’s favourite is the ham alfredo and Luke has even given the mac and cheese a go and given it a big thumbs up.
The biggest bonus for me is that wearefoods Mini Meals have afforded me the treat of not having to slave in the kitchen, rather having additional quality time with my children, whilst still ensuring that they are served nutritious and delicious meals.
The Mini Meals are a generous 200g, and as a result these little pots of deliciousness are able to stretch across meals.
At R39 a pop, these mini meals really are value for money in addition to being wholesome and convenient.
