A trio of easy child-friendly recipes from Madeleine Shaw, all featuring yoghurt as an ingredient, is just what you need to keep the kids busy this weekend
Frankie Bridge is perhaps better known as a singer and celebrity having been a member of S Club Juniors and girl band The Saturdays.
But recently she’s been one of several celebrities and foodies showing off their skills via Danone’s fundraising Cookalong for Families livestream series.
The idea is to get families cooking and eating healthily together, with Danone donating £1 to the charity Family Action, for every video view.
Frankie said: “We’ve been up to all sorts of fun with the boys over the last few months. From blue hair to homemade sand and water slides – but I really can’t wait to have some fun in the kitchen and share some easy, healthy, home cooking with other families in need of a bit of lockdown inspo.”
First to kick off the series was Madeleine Shaw, whose aim is to show people how to eat well using simple, nutritious recipes, three of which she shares here with us.
Others taking part in the initiative with Madeleine and Frankie include Laura Jackson, Hannah Michalak and Fiona Connor.
Danone’s natural yoghurt and Simply Fruit and Kids ranges can be found in major supermarkets such as Asda, Tesco and Morrisons.
