It’s tough out there for new parents right now. In a time that is already fairly tumultuous, the impact that Covid-19 restrictions have on the early days of parenthood are enormous. What should be a time of joy and excitement shared with family, has instead become a rather solitary event. Grandparents can’t meet their grandchildren, aunts and uncles can’t meet nieces and nephews. And along with these absences comes an absence of support. After all, for any of us, there is only so much we can do from afar.
But an entrepreneurial and talented caterer from West Cork is here to remedy that situation. Orla McAndrew Bespoke Catering has come up with an ingenious idea: The Parent Survival Kit.
The Parent Survival kit is ideal for new parents struggling with lack of sleep, lack of support and lack of nearby family. Reaching out by sending this beautifully curated package that includes a range of wholesome and nutritionally balanced home-cooked meals could make all the difference to a newly sleep-deprived pair and have them conveniently delivered to the doorstep.
Send some TLC in the post, with these easy-to assemble frozen meals from a top-quality caterer. With a degree in Business and Culinary Arts, a Diploma in Speciality Food Production (UCC) and a postgraduate Diploma in Food Marketing and Rural Development, her commitment to the provenance and quality of her food is unquestionable.
The Parent Survival Kit includes:
- 12 Free Range Chicken Goujons
- 12 Pork and Mamabear Ketchup Sausage Rolls
- 2 x 4oz Home Made Pesto
- Shepherd's Pie
Other packages and opportunities to avail of with Orla’s company are her Orla’s Supper Club and her Healthier Eating package. Healthier Eating contains a selection of goodies that are low in calories and suitable for anyone trying to follow a lower calorie diet, and Orla’s Supper Club lets you bring the restaurant to your home.
