Start the day with a bang, with our deliciously savoury Marmite Mushrooms on Toast.

Super simple and ready in less than 15 minutes, it’s the perfect way to start the day alongside fresh fruit and a cup of tea or coffee in their favourite mug!

Or serve up a breakfast as sweet as they are with our indulgent Banana and Chocolate Pancakes!

Mix up the fruit and add extra berries, sliced apple or even grapes if you like.

If you’d prefer to have something made up in advance ready to serve while you enjoy a longer sleep in, our Cinnamon Swirls are just the ticket: they can be kept in the fridge for a few days for extra snacking.


Fancy an indoor picnic?

Spread a blanket over the floor and stuff a basket with some of your favourite finger foods for a memorable lunch to celebrate Mother’s Day.

It just shows you don’t always need the sunshine! Try crispy Sausage Rolls with a dollop of ketchup, or make some crunchy, fresh crudites to dip into our delicious Hummus Style Dip

Round off lunch with light and low-fat Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries!

These make a low calorie pud that looks just as good as it tastes.

For a Mother’s Day celebration dinner, rustle up a full three course meal at home that’s going to save you pounds as well as calories! 

A typical takeaway restaurant meal isn’t always slimming-friendly, so create a version that’s perfect for keeping you on track with your weight loss goals without compromising on flavour. 

Start with a simple soup and a warm wholemeal roll for dipping: Spicy Tomato Soup is a family favourite, or make the most of fresh spring flavours with Carrot, Orange and Thyme Soup.

You can’t beat a classic roast dinner as part of your family feast. 

Try tender Roast Beef and Gravy, with all the trimmings, as it can be cooking in the oven and resting as you serve your starter. 

Don’t forget the Yorkshire Puddings!

Use fancy glass serving dishes or ramekins for a dessert that feels so rich and indulgent, it’s hard to believe they’re only 236 calories each.

Sweet Treats

When it’s time for an afternoon pick-me-up, surprise them with a slice of homemade cake. 

You get plenty of servings if you make  our Chocolate Mud Pie…so the celebration can continue for a few extra days!

Not only does it satisfy chocolate cravings but it’s also a showstopping cake that looks incredible on the kitchen counter; if you can resist tucking in, that is!
