Big food news for little ones

UCOOK has teamed up with Kath Megaw, one of South Africa’s leading Paediatric Dieticians, to create a range of yummy frozen kids’ meals.

The new UCOOK Frozen Kids range launches with six meals and two pizza options with more to come, each boasting the promise of No-Nonsense Goodness to ensure that children get the required quantities of essential vitamins and minerals from a large number of hidden vegetables in every dish. The meals are suitable for children from toddler to pre-teen years.

Kath says that as the mother of an ex-fussy eater, she inherently understands the concerns that parents of picky or fussy eaters face. “Making sure that your child eats a balanced diet and consumes the required amount of fruits, vegetables, vitamins and minerals can be difficult and lead to stressful mealtimes. Now you can rest assured that your child is eating a healthy balanced meal, which means saving time on dinner-time battles and having to prepare many different options.”

No-Nonsense Goodness is UCOOK’s promise to parents that their kids will get the benefits of nutritious ingredients crucial for development without compromising on the flavour they love. The UCOOK range has no added preservatives, sugars, sweeteners, artificial colourants or flavours and no added MSG. Each meal has a specially crafted blend of hidden vegetables, with some meals consisting of up to 74 per cent fruits and vegetables. Each meal has an added bespoke Vitamin B pre-mix (B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 and Folic Acid) to boost the vitamin content.

Kath added that she’s often asked about the freezing process and how it affects meals.

“Blast freezing preserves all the nutrients in the meal until you choose to heat it. Following the correct reheating instructions on the pack will ensure that there is no mineral loss or diminishing of the delicious flavours.”

The new UCOOK Kids Frozen range launches with the following meals:

Mac & Cheese, Beef Lasagne, Beef Rump Bites & Root Veg Mash, Chicken & Broccoli Bake, Mushroom Bites & Root Veggie Mash; Spaghetti Bolognese, Double Cheese Mini Pizzas and Bacon and Cheese Mini Pizzas
