We have been asked to share the information below with parents/carers

I’m Theo Michaels; TV chef, author and founder of a company called – online meal planning service for families.


I’ve started an initiative to help families struggling with the cost-of-living to eat better and take away the dreaded question of what to cook every night.


A couple of years ago I launched a business called – an online meal planning service; we usually charge £49.99 per annum however, we are now giving it away for free – no catch, no restrictions, just free.


Every week we issue a new meal plan with a single shopping list, set to the number of people you are feeding so you know exactly what you need to buy for the week. All our recipes are easy to follow, with a nutritional breakdown and many with videos. Members can create their own meal plans with our recipes choosing from vegetarian, GF, kid friendly, quick and easy, air fryer, etc.


We have thousands of members and are currently working with the NHS and Police in communicating our service to their staff.


I’d be very grateful if you could communicate our service to your parents (and staff!) via an email/newsletter/ etc. There’s no catch to this, we’re just trying to help.


I have attached a couple of images that you can use and also noted below a brief introduction to our service (feel free to amend). If you have any questions or want to discuss further please don’t hesitate to contact me.


Thank you in advance for your help and please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions!
