Inside this month’s ‘back to school’ issue, we bring focus to child-friendly recipes and refreshing ways to make packed lunches exciting, tasty and nutritious. From winning the battle of school-morning breakfasts, to getting children to eat their greens, our special ‘September survival guide’ is full of tips for parents easing back into the school routine. During this busy time of year, it can be all too easy to fall into the takeaway trap, which is why you’ll find some of our favourite home comfort recipes inside like hearty venison chilli cottage pies, mackerel club sandwiches and onion bhaji fish & chips. As routines restore this month, transport your mind to new staycation plans with inspiration from our visit to the stunning One&Only The Palm, Dubai.
