    Catering for the family night after night can become a bit tedious especially when it comes to thinking about what to make each time. Our array of healthy family meals are sure to inspire. We’ve got plenty to choose from including recipes for meat-eater, vegetarians, dairy-free diets, and fussy eaters too.

    Healthy doesn’t always mean catering to a diet. These healthy dinner ideas opt for homemade sauces, plenty of vegetables, lower-fat ingredients, and low-calorie swaps. It’s about making sure your family eats right, are getting some if not all of their 5-a-day and are enjoying their dinners too.

    If you’re looking for a healthy yet filling family dish, try the Hairy Bikers’ healthy cottage pie – as shown in the video above. This is a hearty meal packed with a rich tomato and Worcestershire sauce-infused sauce – and topped with a generous amount of mash. It will keep your family fuller for longer, and is only 247 calories per serving.
