M&S has relaunched their Taste Bud range for kids – with tons of yummy meals and lunchbox ideas
Making life easier for parents!
Can we all agree that some days getting a healthy dinner that the kids will actually eat on the table can be a little – well – challenging.
From fussy eaters to food aversions or just plain, old 'I don't like this today even though I ate it yesterday' dramas – making sure our kids eat well and healthy every day is not always plain sailing.
And for these days, I LOVE M&S' Taste Bud range – filled with nutritious meals and healthy snack ideas, as perfect for lunch boxes as they are for those after-shcool hunger pangs.
Right now, M&S has relaunched the range, and added tons of new, delicious options the kids are bound to love.
Nutritionists and developers at M&S have spent 18 months perfecting the recipes and worked alongside nutrition experts at Great Ormond Street Hospital to make sure every product follows specific nutrition guidelines for children aged 4-10.
The range is free from artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners and salt substitutes, and so now parents can rest assured after a long day of working from home and a hectic school run, they can just pop a Taste Buds meal into the oven (or microwave!), knowing their little ones will enjoy something healthy, filling and yummy for lunch or dinner.
"We know how busy parents are and Taste Buds is the perfect go-to for children’s favourites that are nutritionally balanced and delicious, says M&S Nutritionist Laura Street.
"Childhood is an important time for physical and cognitive development, and so providing a nutritious diet that children will enjoy is extremely important and crucial for learning and playing. Every product in the Taste Buds range has 1 of your 5 a day and has our Eat Well logo on the pack, which lets you know the product is healthy.’
What’s new? Hot Dog Pasta (€3.90) is made with animal-shaped pasta and tender chunks of sausage in a delicious tomato sauce, adorable Little Fishies (€3.90) made with tasty, sustainably sourced cod in a crispy breaded crumb and sweet Strawberries and Sultanas (€2.20) that are perfect for on the go or a quick no-prep snack.
As part of M&S’ relaunch for every pack in the range sold in Ireland, 5c will be donated to Children’s Health Foundation Crumlin, to help support seriously ill children and their families.
