  • Meal planning seems like a simple task until you start doing it yourself. Right, mommies? It's not even the cooking part that's the most tedious — it's organizing breakfast, lunch, and dinner, making sure there's enough variety, and most importantly, that these dishes are nutritious and tasty. 

    Add to that the challenge of feeding picky eaters who just won't touch their veggies unless prompted (often, not even when prompted), and what do you get? A frazzled mom in the kitchen.

    Thankfully, there are now a lot of resources on the Internet for homemakers who need help. From the Simpol Facebook page, here's a short list of recipes that ticks all the boxes. Celebrity chef Tatung Sarthou mixes novelty and simplicity together so anyone can make these dishes at home. The quick and easy-to-follow videos are a winner, too.
