Claudine Boulstridge

I am a mother of three young children on a mission to help all kids enjoy real food.


My goal has always been to give my children food that is nutritious but delicious, in order to help them grow without mealtimes feeling like a chore.

Healthy Family Food Ideas started five years ago on Instagram as a photo diary for myself. When my eldest started school it became a way to store successful recipes to go back to when I was lacking inspiration for good lunchbox ideas.... has since moved onto nutritious dinners, snacks, healthy parties, breakfasts, things my kids have cooked and more!

As my following and children have grown, so has my ambition. By sharing the food I cook for my family, my mission is to enhance the health of the next generation by helping other families and their children enjoy healthy food in a fun and easy way.

My aim is to transform the way people cook for their families by going back to basics and eating healthy and real food that's easy to make. I want to reduce processed and sugary food while still ensuring food is tasty and quick to prepare.


I hope you find useful information, recipes and pictures to inspire you and your family on my website.
