Cost Saver Tips
You could use fresh prawns if you spot them on offer. But frozen prawns are usually a cheaper option, plus they’re really handy to have in your freezer for whenever you want to cook them. Just pop your frozen prawns in the fridge to defrost the night before. Why not try popping any leftover vegetable you have in this? You could even throw in any frozen veg you have in the freezer as a quick and tasty option. If you don’t have fresh tomatoes to hand, tomatoes out of a can work just as well in this.
Tips for Kids
Wee one not the biggest fan of spicy food? You could try a mild curry paste or use less of it to keep things on the cooler side. Why not try a mix of white fish like haddock or pollock and use a few less prawns? It’s a great way for your little one to try different flavours. If you’d like to give your wee one a fibre boost, you could give brown rice a go. Remember, it just takes a little bit longer to cook.

Nutrition labels on the front of packaging
- Most of the big supermarkets and many food manufacturers display nutritional information on the front of pre-packed food.
- Front of pack nutrition labels provide information on the number of grams of fat, saturated fat, sugars and salt and the amount of energy (in kJ and kcal) in a serving or portion of a recipe.
- The labels also include information about reference intakes (expressed as a percentage) which are guidelines about the approximate amount of particular nutrients and energy required for a healthy diet.
- The colour coding tells you at a glance if the food has high (red), medium (amber) or low (green) amounts of fat, saturated fat, sugars and salt.
- The more greens on the label, the healthier the choice
- Amber means neither high nor low, so you can eat foods with all or mostly ambers on the label most of the time.
- Reds on the label means the food is high in that nutrient and these are the foods we should cut down on. Try to eat these foods less often and in small amounts.
Food shopping tips
If you’re trying to decide which product to choose, check to see if there's a nutrition label on the front of the pack. This will help you to quickly assess how your choices stack up. You will often find a mixture of red, amber and green colour coding for the nutrients. So when you're choosing between similar products, try to go for more greens and ambers and fewer reds if you want to make a healthier choice.
