4 fast & easy ways you can wrap up a healthy & tasty meal…

How many of you eat out or “da-bao” (takeaway) at least once a day? We’re pretty sure that it has become the norm for busy working adults these days.

Food prepared outside has a higher likelihood to contain more dietary fat, oil, salt, MSG and sugar, with relatively less fibre and nutrients. The habit of having eat-out/order-in food on a frequent basis may harm your health and bring about chronic diseases in the long run. For parents, it is also our responsibility not to put our kids at risk due to lack of time to prepare home-cooked food for them. A balance diet is important and you don’t need to be a Gordon Ramsay to be able to whip up a dish.
