Nutritious meal ideas

fresh food largeThe what's for dinner dilemma is a common concern for busy mums. We all need new inspiration in the kitchen.

As well as the fabulous recipes in the Jalna library, check out these ideas:

For older babies

  • Make a vegetable yoghurt mash. Use any combination of cooked, pureed vegetables and a swirl of Jalna Whole Milk Yoghurt.
  • When avocadoes are in season, make Baby Guacamole: just puree half an avocado with a squeeze of lemon juice and a dollop of Jalna Greek or Whole Milk Yoghurt.
  • Stir canned tuna or salmon through Jalna Yoghurt, with a squeeze of lemon juice and chopped fresh dill or parsley.
  • Make Creamed Rice or Quinoa. Just stir cooked rice or quinoa, grated apple and a little cinnamon through any whole milk Jalna Yoghurt.
  • Mash canned sardines with Jalna Yoghurt and serve with toast fingers.

For toddlers and kids

  • Go for fruity flavours of Jalna Yoghurts and include chilled, single-serve tubs in lunchboxes
  • Offer Jalna Yoghurt smoothies with an extra dollop of yoghurt instead of soft drinks or cordials
  • Top baked potato with a dollop of Jalna Greek Natural Yoghurt and baked beans for lunch or snack
  • Make up a dip with Jalna Yoghurt or use yoghurt as the base for a marinade or sauce
  • Stock the fridge with plenty of choice in fresh dairy foods for after school or sport.
