6 healthy dinners that will get a high five from the whole family

Cooking something for dinner that the entire family loves is no picnic and offering multiple choices each night just isn’t feasible.

The following recipes have been earmarked by our community members as family classics that have been known to get a round of applause at the table. And who doesn’t want that?

Bonus is that they’re all super healthy and perfect if you’re trying to lose weight by following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

These are also great meal options if you are cooking dinner to drop off for a friend who has just had a baby or needs some support.

6 Meals That Will Bring Smiles To Your Table

1. Mexican Lasagne

A delicious version of the classic, this lasagne (pictured above) reheats well for lunch the next day and freezes beautifully too (why not make double?) You can get the recipe here.


2. Chicken & Mushroom Filo Parcels

Just 303 calories per serving, these parcels have been a surprise hit with families everywhere.

By using a wholemeal wrap instead of pastry, the parcel is crunchy, crisp and light.

3. Individual Chicken Pies

These pies, at 372 calories per serving are so comforting and you can still manage to sneak a few veggies inside, and on the side too!

4. Teriyaki Chicken Noodles With Cashews

Another crowd-pleaser at just 373 calories per serve. These tasty noodles are super flexible as you can add any veggies you have and that your family love.

This is a perfect meal to make a double batch of and enjoy as lunch for the week.

5. Spinach And Pesto Pizza

We love making recipes that turn a less than healthy takeaway into a new weeknight regular meal. At 447 calories, this pizza delivers exactly that!

6. One Pot Spaghetti Bolognese

Here we have taken a classic family favourite and made it even easier by cooking the pasta in the same pot as the bolognese!

Mums all over love spag bol for its ability to disguise a myriad of healthy veggies and this one is no exception.

Why not make double batch of the bolognese and freeze a family sized portion for another night?
