It’s important to include family friendly, budget meals into your healthy eating plan as often as possible, as cooking for a family on a limited budget or time can be difficult, often leading to poor dietary choices like calorie laden takeaways.
Having a range of easy-to-make, low calorie, high nutrition recipes to prepare on short notice is a good way to ensure that you continue to lose pregnancy weight while cooking for the whole family.
This super easy recipe for tasty Pea, Cheese and Lemon Fritters is a good budget-friendly meal option that will suit families with toddlers and fussy eaters.
And don’t forget – if you are too busy to cook or prepare a lunch our Healthy Mummy Smoothies make a tasty, healthy, fast and convenient alternative – and you can click here to see why our smoothies are so different to others on the market.


  • 225 grams cooked frozen peas, drained
  • 120 grams reduced-fat cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 4 tbsp plain wholemeal flour
  • Juice and zest from 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 250 grams reduced fat Greek yoghurt


  • Place the peas in a large bowl and add the flour, lemon zest, cheese, egg, and mint.
  • Use your hands to combine well and form into small, flat fritters.
  • Heat a large fry pan over medium heat and add the 1 tbsp of the olive oil.
  • Cook half the fritters, turning after a couple of minutes.

Samara says:  “I have lost 12kgs on the Healthy Mummy plans and smoothies! The Healthy Mummy has helped me to take control of what I can. I am getting happier and more confident with each passing day! I’m not at my goal weight yet – my body has hit the pause button – but I will not give up.  My advice – start TODAY! Don’t wait for next week or Monday, start your journey today. You will thank yourself in a week, a month, a year!
If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always got! Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end”
