Here we share more easy family friendly recipes because we believe that the best family recipes are those that are tasty, satisfying and, most importantly, enjoyed by everyone around the dinner table. Eating meals together as a family has been shown to provide huge benefits, and it doesn't necessarily have to be dinner. Breakfast is often a good time of day for families to come together. Even if you can only manage weekend meals together, your family will still reap the benefits versus no family meals at all.
Most of us struggle to coordinate our down time, which is why mealtimes, when everyone is seated around the table together, become increasingly important. Family meals are the ideal setting for teaching children good table manners, as well as how to make healthy food choices. They also provide adults with the opportunity to catch up on children's lives and are likely a welcome respite from modern on-the-go lifestyles.
For us, family meals are a chance to explore open-ended questions and to think freely. The questions may be related to what the children are learning in school, or they may simply be a curiousness that craves to be satisfied. It's amazing how much can be discovered through simple observation of children. Whatever else time together as a family may mean, it is relatively rare, and so we'll treasure it for as long as we are able to.
Most of my recipes are indeed easy and family friendly, but there are some additional easy family friendly recipes that don't fall neatly into one of the main meal categories, so I've gathered them here on this page. They might be sides, snacks, accompaniments or anything else that might help round out your meal and make it feel complete. I hope you'll find this page useful, and who knows, maybe one of these will make it into your collection of easy family friendly recipes. :)
Have a look at our collection of more easy family friendly recipes for those little extras and trimmings that make your meal that little bit more special and complete. The collection is evolving, and as new recipes are finalised, I will post them here.
