“I like to cook more than one thing at a time as it saves time,” says Nikola.

“I use all four stove top elements plus an electric wok and electric frying pan. I made 68 meals and I froze some. ”

But she’s not alone in the kitchen! Nikola enlists the help of her four-year-old twin boys to make food.

“My four year olds eat most of the meals I make, except maybe the ones that have a lot of chilli in them,” she says.

“I find it helps them eat their meals if they’ve been involved in the process. A lot of the meals I’ve made here are for their lunches.”

“When I cook, I let the boys help and get involved and I find they are very proud of what they make. It’s like they give themselves the confidence they need to try it if they know what’s in it.”
