From childhood most of us can remember fights around the dinner table caused by our unwillingness to chew and swallow those pesky carrots or green beans. But you could always be sure that mom would remind you that you will see better if you eat your carrots, and that broccoli will build your brain power which will help you with your schoolwork.
She would also remind your little brother that if he wants to be big and strong like daddy – he better be sure to eat all his spinach.
While you might be wearing glasses today without daddy’s bulky forearms, your mom has always had your best interests at heart and part of her job is to make sure you are cared for in every way and this includes eating balanced meals every day, no matter how old you are. McCain is a helping hand for mom, who combines a little bit of what is good for you and knows what you love.
“At McCain we salute all the moms out there who are balancing their home life with work and all the added pressures of everyday life. We believe that the products we offer them, receives their stamp of approval when deciding what to prepare for their families every day without breaking the bank or spending the whole afternoon or evening in the kitchen”, says Deolinda Da Costa, Marketing Manager for McCain SA.
This year for Mother’s Day we would like to make it easy for the kids or for Dad to return the favour by cooking mom a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner with the help of McCain. By visiting our Facebook page you can choose from a bunch of easy to prepare recipes such as Pea Hashbrowns, Spinach and Ricotta Tortellini, Curried Mince Vetkoek, Oxtail Stew, and a delicious Spiced Pumpkin Milk tart for dessert.
Remember to make her a card and give her a big hug for all the late nights, early mornings and for every meal she has lovingly prepared for you – being a mom is a hard job, but one that is very rewarding.
We would like to wish all the amazing moms out there a very happy Mother’s Day, may you know how appreciated you are today and every day!
