My ‘Football Mum’ Lunch Hack

Our two eldest boys have been playing football since they were three years old and it’s a large part of our family life. Whilst they enjoy it immensely, there is a part of the grassroots game that isn’t as fun as the rest of it. Cold, wet weather!

The football season runs from September to May, so the boys play in all weathers. On freezing, rainy days like today I need to make sure they have a decent lunch when we get home and defrost.

That is one super muddy boy!

Something my 10 year old enjoys are Rustlers Southern Fried Chicken burgers. I like them too because they’re quick and easy to give to the boys once we’re home and I can have them on the table in minutes, leaving me more time to wrestle the toddler out of his muddy wellies and into the bath!

The chicken burgers come with a sauce, but we also add lots of lettuce, tomato and cucumber too. That keeps me happy since my son is getting carbs in the bread, protein in the chicken and some salad too!

These burgers are smaller than the average burger which means the children are eating appropriately sized portions. I hate food waste and I’m sure there would be leftovers if they had bigger burgers. These are just right.

They’re also good value compared to a similar style burger from a takeaway. Rustler’s Southern Fried Chicken burgers are £2.50 per twin pack at Tesco. An all round win, I’d say.

Now we just need to concentrate on winning at football, too!
