There is no need to prepare separate meals or buy special foods — the entire family can enjoy the same healthy meals.
Also spending more time at home and taking a break from our usual busy lives may mean we have more chance to experiment with preparing meals at home. Winter is perfect soup weather and you can often include plenty of vegetables to ensure you get your 5 veg a day.
