I’m pregnant at the minute and have always loved cooking. Now that I’m cooking for an extra special little one I’m taking even more of an interest and trying to eat a well-balanced yet still tasty diet to ensure myself and bump get all the nutrients we need!

Makes 4-5 servings
This recipe is packed with vegetables, providing up to 2 portions of veg per portion. It’s also high in fibre, which is recommended by the FSAI to help prevent and manage constipation during pregnancy. It’s suitable for during pregnancy, breastfeeding and for toddlers.
Make 4-5 portions. Cost per portion (based on 5 portions): €1.00
Suitable for freezing
This dish is great served with new baby boiled potatoes in their skins and broccoli, or for a more casual meal, serve with pasta and some crusty wholemeal baguette.
These Fajitas are great served with guacamole, tomato salsa and natural yogurt placed on the table in little bowls. If you are entertaining, you could serve with some Mexican rice too. If you don’t have all the spices, it’s fine to use a packet of fajita spice mix!
Serves 4 hungry adults
This easy beef casserole is suitable for all the family. It can be pureed or mashed to suit the weaning stage (be sure to use low salt stock cubes for weaning recipes). You could add other vegetables e.g. parsnip. It always tastes better when served the following day so refrigerate overnight if you are not freezing it.

This delicious recipe is a quick and nutritious alternative to what you might be tempted to order in on a Friday night and is a real family favourite. This recipe is very mild and suitable for the whole family but of course you can add some fresh chilli with your garlic and onion for some spice.
Tip: Add a can of coconut milk to make it creamy
