Avoid unhealthy choices at mealtime and fuel your kids with healthy food

By Ellyn Peratikou

The summer holidays are not always a nice relaxing break for the parents. It can be hard to keep up with kids, keep them from becoming bored during the school break. But this can mean there isn’t much time for you. After a long day of activities the last thing you’d want to do is cook dinner. The easiest and most convenient choices: takeaway or microwave meals are not always the healthiest choices. They can contain high saturated fats and hidden high salt and sugar content.

Unfortunately, the only real way to know exactly what food is fuelling your kids is to make it yourself from scratch.

If only there was a way of cooking healthily in a effortless, hassle-free way?

With the Tefal ActiFry you can leave the cooking to the appliance and enjoy a stress-free dinner.

It’s Tefal’s unique patented technology which ensures excellent all over cooking results and allows hands-free cooking, so you have more time to do the things you love. Thanks to the patented heat pulse technology and automatic stirring paddle, the hot air is not only distributed evenly throughout the appliance, but your ingredients are also continuously being stirred – for excellent and even cooking results.

ActiFry is simple and hassle-free to use. All you need to do is place your food in the bowl, add a spoonful of your chosen oil, close the lid, set the timer and let it cook away. Whilst cooking, the ActiFry will maintain a constant cooking temperature to ensure perfect and even cooking results. For peace of mind, the steam-free lid and viewing window also allows you to keep an eye on how your cooking is progressing. The convenience doesn’t end there as once you have finished your meal the lid, bowl and paddle can all be easily removed and are all dishwasher-safe.

Not only is the ActiFry easy to use but as you only need to cook food with 1 spoonful of oil your meals  will be relatively low in fat. Even foods that are generally classed as ‘junk food’ can be cooked in the ActiFry healthily. For example you can enjoy tasty, traditional, home-cooked chips, with only 3% fat.

With the ActiFry you can effortlessly cook all your family’s favourites – chips, chicken, sausages, curries, stir-fries and even desserts!
