Meet Lucy Milne

Mum of three, Dundee

Lucy Milne (27) lives in Dundee with her partner Barry (29) and their three boys: Lucas (3), Millan (2) and Leo (12 weeks old). Since Barry works offshore, Lucy currently spends her time looking after their kids while also working as a part-time waitress. 

What Lucy says

Lucy's favourite recipe

"Tomato and tuna pasta with pesto, herbs and chilli flakes. 

It only takes 10 minutes and it’s a good source of nutrients, protein and good fats. Plus, if there’s extra sauce leftover, I like to use it to make homemade pizzas."

Lucy's top tips

"I try to make meal times a fun experience for my kids. The more fun you make it, the more likely they are to eat healthily without any kind of fuss. 

Try making a 'fakeaway' – our favourite is homemade chicken goujons and fish fingers. They’re much healthier than the fast food version and so simple to make. Plus, you can make them ahead of time and freeze them to use later."
