When you’ve got a baby that won’t leave your hip, it can be tough to get things done.
Especially things like sitting down to eat a healthy, nutritious lunch. This can be a time when you might reach for a quick fix like a chocolate biscuit or muffin as they can be eaten one handed – not a great option.
But today we have some quick lunches that you can easily eat with just one hand. Just search for the recipe in the online Challenge Hub.
All recipes can be prepared in advance when you have some time, then just grab and go when you’re hungry. You could even cook extra of each recipe so that you have lunch for the whole week sorted.
