The Right Food


Breakfast is a nightmare

Mum’s good Intention?

To provide a wholesome meal and to add variety


Fussy child and chaos for the morning!

What do I do?

Do you have a child who is very fussy at breakfast?

Are you determined to avoid the high sugared cereals and white bread?

I made the mistake of giving my boys a hot breakfast every second morning at pre-school, so to get them to eat a weetbix is out of the question. However I did do some research on breakfast ideas, asked other Mums their ideas, and trialled some new forms of breakfast!

Goodluck!… hope you have some success with these ideas like I did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ham and Cheese Toastie!

Replace wholemeal bread slices with a croissant if you wish!

The Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie!

Replace strawberries with a banana if you wish!

½ cup of oatmeal

1 ½ cups of milk

½ cup of strawberries

1 tablespoon of honey

¼ teaspoon of vanilla essence

Put in a blender, and breakfast is ready!!!!!

Bacon and Cheese Muffins!

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 slices of short cut bacon, finely chopped

2 ½ cups of Self Raising flour

1 cup of tasty cheese

3 eggs

50g of melted butter

1 cup of milk

Preheat Oven 170c fan-forced

Fry up the bacon pieces

Mix all the ingredients and place in a muffin tin lined with patty cases. Cook until slight browning, or when a knife comes out clean when put in a muffin. ENJOY!!


What should I feed my child

Have you ever considered buying  a cheap tray of turkey mince? Let me share with you a delicious, child friendly meal.

Turkey Meatballs


  • Tray of turkey mince
  • Leggos jar of Bolognese sauce
  • Finely chopped 4 slices of short cut bacon
  • Shredded parmesan cheese
  • Breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • Vegetables to add (4 florets of broccoli or 1 zucchini)
  • Plain flour
  • Olive oil


Fry up the bits of bacon till brown tinge

Mix mince, 2 tablespoons of leggos sauce, bacon bits, parmesan, veges chopped (optional)

Make mix into small balls (size of golf balls)

Coat each meatball in flour, egg then bread crumbs

Place in a heated pan of oil to cook. To avoid using excess oil, just cook/brown both sides, then place them on paper towel and plate to finish in the microwave for 2 minutes.


Cut one in half to check if it is cooked, if not, put them back in for another minute.

If they don’t work out, please e mail me and I will help……

Take note

As your children get older, they will be more interested in eating vegetables when they discover that if they do, veges don’t go in the meatballs any more….this worked with mine!

Why turkey mince?

When my son was 3, he found the beef mince balls too strong to taste. That’s when I decided to use veal and turkey. Subtle meat flavour but delicious taste once you add the bits!
