Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry

After all the Easter treats and indulgence, it is time to get back to routines and I hope, some light summery dishes for dinners this week. First up is a stir fry dish that is cooked in 5 minutes with only 5 minutes preparation. For me it is a win win, quick, tasty, nutritious and full of flavours. Children love the noodles and the tender stem broccoli dressed up with ginger and soy is a nice addition to the little strips of beef. Decorate the final dish with chopped chilli, coriander and sesame seeds for a big flavour punch. It makes it look pretty too! Here’s how:

I've been thinking a lot recently about what -and how - my children eat. In the main, my children are good eaters: They are usually willing to try most things, and are usually open to new ideas (it has taken a lot of hard work to get to that point, I might add). I still think, however, that children can get into “food ruts”, as do adults, and that it is up to us as parents to do what we can to help guide (drag?) them through the rut and back into healthy eating.
