Are you struggling with food ideas that will satisfy the whole family? You might be fed up with constantly preparing and cooking 2 or 3 different meals. Take a look at some of the ideas below and see if they work for you and your family.

Buffet Style

If you have a lot of food in your house that needs eating you could consider doing a buffet-style dinner where everyone can pick what they want and be happy with their choice. You can quite literally do whatever you have in your fridge or cupboards, from tuna pasta, or plain pasta to a quiche if you can make them.

A buffet-style dinner is also great if you have guests around, it is quick and easy and doesn’t really require any effort to make it good.


Pizza is a firm favorite of a lot of families. It is much healthier if you make it yourself and it’s also a fun way to get everyone involved. If you don’t fancy making the bases you can buy these ready-made and just add whichever toppings you want. Making pizzas is a good way of using up leftovers or stuff that is shortly going out of date. You can put anything you like on a pizza, ham, sweetcorn, peppers, chicken to name just a few but there are endless options. You could try this homemade pizza sauce recipe and see what everyone makes of it.

Kids love getting involved with pizza making as they feel valued and appreciate their finished product. If your child is a fussy eater then this is a great way to get them exploring new flavors. 


Creature Comforts

The good old-fashioned family favorites always spring to mind when thinking about what you can cook that everyone will love. You have mac n cheese or beef brisket to choose from. Every family is different but there are always one or two meals that everyone loves and adores when it is put on the table in front of them.

You could also make burgers, this is another great way to get everyone involved. It is a great alternative when you are fed up with doing the usual meals with mince such as chili. You can prepare everything and get everyone to make their own and fill their bun with whatever they like, lettuce, onions, and sauces for example.

One-Pot Wonders

One-pot wonders are everyone's favorite thing to do, they save so much washing up and you can leave them cooking all day if you have a slow cooker. There are so many options for recipes when it comes to one-pot meals. You could make a chicken casserole and add some onions, peppers and a little spice to give it a kick, if you are giving it to kids then leave out the spice unless they can handle it. You could also do chili, chili night might already be a winner in your household but if it isn't it soon will be when you dish up this amazing meal.

We hope this gives you some ideas of future meals to impress all the family with.
