Mums know the importance of selecting only the healthiest and most natural foods for their kids. However, it can prove challenging to find natural food products that are locally sourced, affordable and great tasting too.
Mums will agree that it can be so difficult to find ways to keep lunchboxes healthy, affordable, varied and interesting week in week out. Even when you think you have found the perfect sandwich filling, more often than not, after a few days’ lunchboxes will begin to come home partially eaten or untouched.
We however have found the perfect solution to the age-old lunchbox conundrum. Green Farm Fresh Foods is a company that specialises in sliced cooked meats that are 100% natural, Irish and delicious. The food range features sliced or torn chicken breast in a range of irresistible flavours from sweet chilli and lime, Cajun and roast chicken. The range also includes turkey breast slices and traditional roast beef slices. Green Farm selects only the finest Grade-A chicken or turkey fillet and uses 100% natural herbs and spices. All their beef comes from Board Bia (Irish Food Governing Body) approved sources and is 100% Irish.
The range is low in fat, high in protein, contains no MSG or artificial flavours or colours and is gluten free. The Green Farm range also boasts a new lower price with most products now only €2.99 which means it’s never been so affordable. We priced another leading brand which offers a similar range of cooked chicken and when we compared it to the Green Farm range we were surprised to see that a pack of roast chicken was over €1.00 more expensive and contained only a percentage of chicken breast. We also found that many of the other ranges available aren't gluten free which is just another wonderful reason to select Green Farm.
The Green Farm range of sliced and torn cooked meats is a wonderfully easy way to ensure that your child is getting something nutritious for lunch. The range is really versatile and can be quickly popped into sandwiches, wraps, pittas, bagels or ciabatta along with some lettuce, low fat mayonnaise, tomatoes, houmous or any number of other tasty combinations. They would also make a mouth-watering addition to salads, curries, stir-fries or pasta salads or can be enjoyed on their own as a nutritious snack. We all know how hectic mums daily lives are which is why Green Farm cooked meats are not only ideal for packed lunches but also as after school snacks, quick and easy dinners and better yet they are sure to satisfy even the fussiest eaters.
Most Green Farm Foods products are priced at €2.99 and are available from all major Supervalu, Centra, Dunnes Stores, Tesco, Londis, Spar, Superquinn and other independent stores.
