It's long been thought that kids love nothing better for dinner than unhealthy fast food like sausages and chips. Yet it seems that we have misjudged them, and the times have changed – children have now developed a much more sophisticated palate. In a recent survey conducted by Birds Eye, more than 50% of adults questioned said that their children would eat salmon and 37% would eat Feta cheese. Other surprises were aubergines (27%), asparagus (33%) and lentils (36%).
This comes as a welcome surprise. After a long, busy day who wants to spend hours slaving in the kitchen to prepare different meals that satisfies everyone's tastes? Now family meals can be just that, a meal that is eaten by all the family and one that is both enjoyable and healthy.
Someone who knows a thing or two about feeding children in a nutritious way to keep them healthy and happy is Dr Sarah Schenker. She will be coming into the studio to talk about how you can become more inventive when it comes to mealtimes, and how incorporating children's favourite foods into your own old favourites – such as a feta cheese sandwich or a fish finger sandwich with Salmon fish fingers – can make all the difference. Making meal times fun, tasty and with foods that are better both for you and the whole family.
So if you want to know how to create easy dishes that are both nutritious and delicious, log on to our webchat and join in the discussion.
Dr Sarah Schenker joins us live online to discuss how to enjoy a healthy meal with your children.
