Easy meals for fussy children – and they will love them!

Before I became a mum I didn’t realise just how fussy children are!

Despite introducing my children to a wide range of foods, I seem to have raised fussy eaters.

The new Quick After-Work Cookbook has an excellent selection of teatime recipes written specifically with little fussy eaters in mind. Of course, all children are different, but there should be something that appeals to all.

The Children’s Teas chapter features:

  • Fish Finger Tacos
  • Turkey Pittas
  • Tortilla Pan Sandwich
  • Sloppy Joes
  • Mini Muffin Pizzas
  • Veggie Nuggets
  • Pork & Apple Burgers
  • Bacon on Pea Green Fritters
  • Hidden Veg Quorn Bolognese

And all can be on the table within 30 minutes.

New Quick After-Work Cookbook

Quick After-Work Cookbook

I’m delighted to introduce you to our brilliant new cookbook; Quick After-Work.

Honestly, since we have had first samples printed, everyone who has worked on it has been clamouring for a copy.

Not only are they speedy – each can all be on the table in half an hour or less – but the recipes are REALLY delicious.

We got so many high scores for taste from our testers – and every single recipe is tested three times; first by the writer, then an ordinary cook and then by the food stylist at the photo shoot (who also tweaks ingredients if there are issues raised by our home cooks).


Here’s a taster of what to expect from the book:

Quick After-Work recipes

Mexican Chicken Burger

Salted Caramel Fondue & Grilled Pineapple


Every recipe has straightforward instructions, cook’s tips and a colour photograph. And the book is wiro-bound so that it lies flat on your kitchen worktop.

At £8.99 it’s a complete bargain.

Exclusive limited-edition Dairy Diary Tote Bag

Dairy Diary Shopping Bag

I simply adore this lovely shopping bag

It’s large enough for groceries or even some cheeky spur-of-the-moment purchases, but easily folds flat so that it will fit into a handbag.

The lovely design – and Dairy Diary logo – is featured on both sides.

At only £5.99 it’s an affordable treat. And wouldn’t it make a great gift for a Dairy Diary fan?
