DEBORAH ANDREWS

LUNCH BOX CHALLENGE

Deborah is the wife of former Springbok rugby player Mark Andrews, mother of three and founder of the Moms Matter website and magazine. She is passionate about children and food: “As mums we appreciate the importance of a nutritious school lunch for the growing bodies and minds of our children, but the thought of trying to convince our kids to eat the ‘healthier’ stuff can fill us with dread. There’s no need to spend hours creating a culinary masterpiece, instead just a few moments with a cookie cutter on a sandwich, a ribbon around an apple or grapes and strawberries on a cocktail stick, can make all the difference to putting a smile on their faces.”
