Classic Spaghetti Bolognese #HealthyRedMeat

I have teamed up with Britmums and the Meat Advisory Panel to come up with a really tasty recipe which promotes red meat in children’s diets! Red Meat has recently been in the media spotlight because experts fear that the nutritional benefits are being overshadowed by lots of negative views. Red Meat which is full of iron, zinc, and B vitamins, selenium and potassium are often low in toddlers and children.


One of our most favourite red meat food is leaned minced beef. It can be a great base for any recipes such a meatballs, tacos and in my case Spaghetti Bolognese. Red meat includes pork, beef, lamb and less popular meats such as Veal, Mutton, goat and horse.


We have one meal that is guaranteed empty clean plates and that is Spaghetti Bolognese. All 3 boys devour it and it is one of the few meals i don’t have to cook. EVER! Mark is our super Spag Bol chef and his version tastes delicious! You can add in your own herbs, etc.


  • Minced Beef/Lamb
  • Chopped Onion
  • Mixed Vegetables
  • Tomato Passata
  • Dried Spaghetti
  • Garlic Bread


  1. Pre-Heat the oven and place the garlic bread into bake before starting your Spaghetti Bolognese
  2. Brown of the mince in a frying pan, and on a separate hob boil the mixed veg.
  3. Add the chopped Onion to the frying pan and fry with the mince.
  4. Add in the Tomato Passata and the mixed Veg.
  5. Bring to the boil and then leave to simmer for 20 min,
  6. Meanwhile, boil up a pan of Spaghetti, occasionally stir and leave for 20 minutes
  7. Once cooked, strain the water from the spaghetti and dish onto plate, Then serve the bolognese on top of the spaghetti
  8. Enjoy!!
