With Father’s Day coming up this Sunday it’s often one of those family celebrations that provides an easy excuse to make unhealthy food choices. We want to spoil the Dads in our lives to thank them for the support and love they give us but you can still spoil Dad without loading him and the rest of the family up with poor meal choices.

Think of many Dads’ favourite foods – often things like burgers, pies, schnitzels and curries (usually the menu at the local pub will list off your Dad’s or partner’s favourite meals!). All these things can easily be made at home in a healthy way so that no one misses out.
Organise to make your Dad or your partner a special meal at home this Father’s Day rather than joining the crowds at local restaurants and pubs. Sharing a meal at home will make the day really special and give the Dad in your life time to spend with the family.
Here are our top Father’s Day meal ideas from the 28 Day Challenge to ensure you can keep on track with your healthy eating goals and still serve up tasty meals to spoil everyone:
