Kinder Kitchen cooking tip - freezing meals

Many of the recipes you will make will make enough food for 3 or 4 meals. Although when you freeze food and then reheat it, it will lose some of it's goodness, it is wise especially during the week when time can be tight to have meals to hand in your freezer.

Once the food is cooked and has cooled (within 1 1/2 hours) freeze the meals into individual portions that can be warmed up at a later date. Just be careful that you reheat all food properly. Allow the food to defrost overnight or use a microwave.

Guidelines regarding how long food lasts in a freezer differ although the main consensus states between 8 and 12 weeks maximum.
