Trying to eat less meat and a little more veg? Want to encourage your little ones to follow suit? Then you’ve come to the right place!
With Veganuary in full swing we’ve teamed up with toddler ready meal brand Little Dish to give away three bundles of their new plant-based ready meals plus a set of fridge magnets, a wooden spoon and an apron to help teach little ones about the food they’re eating.
We’re a far cry from being vegan in our house but what we are trying to do is eat less meat and embrace more plant power.
Little Dish’s new plant-based range includes vegetable dhal & rice and vegetable chilli & rice (£2.35) which are both wheat and dairy free and packed full of plant-based goodness.
Celebrating Veganuary with Little Dish
They very kindly sent us some of the new meals to try out – along with their new finger food range which includes mini chicken & veg bites and mini cod goujons – and their new fridge magnets designed to encourage little ones to try and taste new textures and learn more about the food they’re eating.
The veg chilli & rice combines (or should I say hides!) haricot and turtle beans in a mildly-spiced tomato sauce with yellow pepper and butternut squash with fluffy Basmati and colourful red rice.
This was a particular hit with the youngest, who loves what she calls ‘rice and sauce’, while I love the fact there’s so much veg packed in there that she wouldn’t touch with a barge pole if I served it on its own!
The vegetable dhal & rice is made with red lentils, tomato, cauliflower, coconut and spices with basmati rice and amounts to two of the recommended five-a-day.
As well as being a hit with the youngest (two), there were also clean plates all round with my older two (five and eight) – and it’s not often we find something they’ll all eat without complaining!
So, if you fancy trying out the new plant-based meals for yourself, here’s how!
