Family nutritionist testimonials
“I love using Jenny’s recipes for my family because they are simple, nutritious and always extremely delicious.”
“Thanks for today – thought you might like to know, it has had instant impact..Oscar got straight onto the computer searching for recipes as soon we got home and now there’s a tray of healthy flapjacks in the oven – with plenty of dried fruit, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, walnuts and just a little bit of chocolate.”
“Made your Pizza Chicken Nuggets for the family tonight - amazing! My 4 year old declared it to be ‘The best tea ever' and begged me to promise we could have it again. My 16 month old happily munched his way through them and the hubby enjoyed them too - winner all round, thank you!”
