Achieving your five a day can often be a struggle, especially when it is now recommended that no more than two of these portions should come from fruit! It’s a bit hard to whip out some broccoli florets to snack on when you’re on the run. Therefore, an easy way of increasing your get intake, often without even realising, is bulking out your meals.
Lasagna is a family favourite which always gets all the family eating a wholesome meal together. By removing the red meat source every now and again from a meal, the fat content is reduced and micronutrient is greatly increased. The meal is also great for vegetarians or adding those extra veggies into your kids diet.
