Speedy family food: Cheat's pizza and beef bolognese

Never one to shy away from a strong opinion, Gino D’Acampo sparked a social media storm yesterday after claiming that fussy children are the result of 'stupid parents'.

While some agreed with his comments, others fumed. But wherever you stand on the debate, one thing’s clear - many of you battle with your children every mealtime.

Mum and chef Michela Chiappa's speedy cheat's pizza and beef bolognese with hidden vegetables are guaranteed to transform your children from fussy to foodies.

Gino blames 'stupid parents' for fussy eaters as he talks healthy family food

When I was younger, my mum prepared dinner and that is what you ate. I beg parents to be a little more strong and say 'this is our dinner, this is what you are going to have'

– Gino has no time for children who are picky with their food

He’s an award winning chef, King of the Jungle and the man that every woman dreams of having in their kitchen (and he didn't tell us to say that!!)

But now, our favourite Italian is bringing us classic meals for under £5 with his new cookbook ‘Gino’s Healthy Italian for Less’.

The Italian Stallion tells us all about the inspiration behind his new book, his top tips for saving money in the kitchen and how he believes that fussy children are actually the result of ‘stupid’ parents.
