I'm determined to start SlimmingWorld in jan, but want to make some new meals that are more family friendly - I have a 3, 5 & 8 year old (5 yr old is a complete fuss pot )

We already eat staples of spag Bol, chicken & potatoes, chicken & rice, they like a mild curry (korma) but I usually use a jar for this, they love sausages

Can people help with suggestions / recipes

Like a lot of people we need to budget a lot more this year so can't afford to spend tons on food,

There a some low syns sausages, a slimming world grill up is great.

Spag Bol, chilli etc all great and cost effective.

Eggs are brilliant, loads of omelettes, slimming world quiche etc.

Chips and roasties done with fry light, I love butternut squash instead

Mostly normal meals but with loads of veg

Mayflower curry sauce ... b & m £1. Powder you mix with water to make curry sauce, amazing! And only 3 syns per 28g. I double up and make enough for 2 of us and lunches next day.

There's a recipe in this month's mag for a Korma style curry using pureed cauliflower instead of cream. Plus a free booklet of sw versions of takeaway good. There's a recipe in there for a pizza using cauliflower with egg as the base, I'm going to try both. Who knew a humble cauli was so versatile!

Cajun chicken pasta is a firm favourite in our house. Paprika pork and Nacho Style Feast too.

I get 5% mince from Iceland as it's frozen and I like the chicken strips which are already cooked too.

Chicken noodle soup is a quick easy recipe to use.

I find pinch of nom good for budget recipes.
