Beat the heat!
Eating when the weather is hot, can be difficult, so it is best to stick to lunch fresh ingredients that look light and tempting to eat. Many can be prepared with little or no cooking. This is great news for the chef in your family as nobody wants to be cooking in hot weather!
When it comes to menu planning, think ‘light and refreshing’, For the perfect snacks to enjoy during the day, a chilled sliced melon is ideal and is easy to digest as it is 90% water. Store all your fruit in the fridge so that it can be enjoyed chilled as this makes it all taste more refreshing. Vegetarian-style meals are ideal too as they are not as heavy to eat as meat and are still packed with protein which everyone in the family needs.
The most important point to remember is that everyone must stay hydrated, so keep an eye on the young and older family members – if they need tempting, home made fruit ice lollies will definitely prove popular and children love the novelty of having ice cubes in all their drinks.
