Healthy, hassle-free kids’ meals at Checkers

Checkers has just launched a new range of delicious and healthy kids’ convenience meals! Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay and his daughter Matilda developed the range exclusively for Checkers.

Finding time to prepare wholesome tasty meals for children is often a serious challenge in today’s time-pressed society. That’s why Checkers enlisted the help of the Ramsays to create the ideal meal solution for kids.

More than 200 fussy youngsters and busy moms approved the Oh My Goodness! range. All the meals taste great and come with a no-junk promise. They are free from MSG, added sugar and salt, and contain no added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The meals are bursting with flavour and consist of locally sourced vegetables and certified free-range beef and chicken.

“From the outset we were adamant that the Oh My Goodness! range had to be packed with goodness without compromising on taste. As a busy father to four children, Gordon Ramsay understood the challenge only too well,” commented Neil Schreuder, Marketing Director for Checkers.

The supermarket chain is so confident in the end product that the new range even comes with a Taste Guarantee! If children do not like the taste, Checkers will gladly refund the purchase.

There are currently five meals in the Oh My Goodness! range. They each retail for R29.99 and are available only from Checkers.

  • Beefy Cottage Pie – free range beef mince topped with buttery sweet potato mash
  • Chicken, Bacon & Corn Pie – free range chicken breast pieces with bacon & sweetcorn in a cheese sauce topped with sweet potato mash
  • Cheesy Macaroni – creamy, cheesy cauliflower sauce with macaroni, topped with cheddar
  • Cheesy Chicken, Rice & Veg – free range chicken breast pieces in a cheesy sauce with broccoli, corn & nutty brown rice.
  • Spaghetti Bolognaise – free range beefy bolognaise sauce with wholewheat spaghetti, topped with cheddar

Our editor’s daughter has given an enthusiastic thumbs up to the meals she has tried so far, with the macaroni and cheesy cauliflower sauce a firm favourite!

    1. Hi Ibtishaam,
      When they first came out last year they weren’t, but perhaps pop into your nearest store and see if they added to the range. When I reviewed them they had very limited meals. I hope you find something for your boy.
      Warmest Regards
      Mandy, Editor
