Easy meals the kids can cook dad this Fathers Day

In partnership with Woolworths

My kids have started a tradition of cooking breakfast and dinner on Fathers Day which I think is a sweet way of winning Dad’s heart through his stomach. What Dad doesn’t love food, right?!  We could easily take him out, but my hubby and I enjoy watching the kids in the kitchen – it gives them a sense of independence, achievement and satisfaction by making something for their Dad.  I’ve put together a collection of easy meals the kids can cook dad this Fathers Day either for breakfast, dinner or dessert.  Give your kids all they need to gift their Dad, Pop or special person in their life with a delicious home cooked dinner that’s sure to impress and fill up his stomach.
