We usually have a fresh homemade meal in the evening, however it is always handy to have a couple of ready meals in the freezer for when we are running late and have no time to cook, or just before food shopping when the fridge is running low on supplies.
Miniscoff has a large selection of organic food for children, they are healthy ready meals which are low in salt, sugar and fat, and high in nutrition. The meals are prepared using only the best British meat and local food wherever possible.
Little man was sent a selection of Miniscoff meals to review, they are frozen and only take a couple of minutes to heat up in the microwave, so very practical and easy!
Organic Creamy Salmon Pasta is an organically farmed Scottish Salmon in creamy sauce with vegetables and penne pasta. It was the first meal that little man tried and he didn’t even notice the difference between our homemade meals and miniscoff ready meals.
Organic Curly Wurly Chicken is a scrummy Bolognese made with organic chicken in a rich tomato sauce with basil served with curly pasta. Little man liked the shape of the pasta and that the Bolognese sauce had chicken instead of mince meat.
Broccoli Bill’s Pie is a tasty vegetarian pasta dish with a tomato and mushroom ragu, broccoli florets and creamy cheese sauce. We don’t usually have vegetarian meals at home – only during the Greek Orthodox Lent – so it was nice to have a vegetarian meal for a change.
Salmon Ocean Pie is an organically farmed Scottish salmon fillet in a creamy sauce with vegetables and mashed potato. I have a confession to make, I didn’t share any of the Salmon Ocean Pie with little man. One morning I realised I had no lunch to take to work, so I helped myself to one of his miniscoff meals, and it was lovely!
Organic Chilli Yum Yum is a mild chilli to tickle the tastebuds, sweetened with mango chutney and served with basmati rice. It was the only meal that little man didn’t like much, hubby tried some and said it needed more seasoning. Little man had some of it, but he didn’t finish the meal – which is quite rare as he is a good eater.
Overall, little man enjoyed his miniscoff meals, he would have all of them again apart from Organic Chilli Yum Yum. And I would be happy to have the Salmon Ocean Pie again as it was very tasty. Miniscoff meals are great to have in the freezer for when you would like to give your children a healthy and tasty meal but do not have enough time to prepare it.
Miniscoff meals are available at Ocado at RRP £3.50 per meal. They also have a range of sauces.
