Meals that heal.

Meals that heal.

Supporting PCHF with Mum’s Sause: Mum-of-three, Di, shares her simple, toddler-approved recipes.

A home-cooked meal with family is a simple pleasure that we can sometimes take for granted. But for families like Luca’s, who have spent countless weeks in hospital, home-cooked meals can offer nourishment, comfort, and a sense of normalcy.

Luca is a fun-loving, cheeky four-year-old who was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma just before his second birthday. His journey began with a seemingly minor accident when he slipped in the garden.

When Luca rapidly developed black eyes, his mum Di knew something was wrong.  This led to Luca being diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma, a form of cancer common in kids under five, which grows in the body’s nerve cells.

Faced with this life-threatening condition, Luca’s family, including his twin brother Noah, relocated to Perth for treatment. Over 15 challenging months, Luca endured numerous biopsies, surgeries, rounds of chemotherapy, stem cell rescues, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy at PCH. Despite the hardships, there were also moments of joy along the journey, like celebrating the twins’ birthday outside PCH on the greenspace.

You can help to support families like Luca’s through Hospitals United for Sick Kids (HUSK) Mum’s Sause products. Importantly, 50 cents from every jar sold in WA year-round comes directly to PCHF, helping to boost the transformation of the Waalbiirniny Waabiny Boodja nature-space, providing a natural, healing environment for patients and families.

With every jar of Mum’s Sause, you’re not just cooking a meal – you’re helping to give moments of hope and joy to WA kids like Luca. That’s why we asked Di, Luca’s mum, to share two of her favourite toddler-friendly recipes using Mum’s Sause:

Mum’s Sause Pizza Scrolls (makes 20pieces)

4 sheets puff pastry
1 jar Mum’s Sause
Your favourite cheese slices/ grated cheese.

1. Thaw the puff pastry. Preheat the oven to 190C.
2. Spread Mum’s Sause over the surface of the pastry, leaving 0.5cm border.
3. Sprinkle with cheese and gently roll the pastry into a log.
4. Slice into 5 pieces and place flat on a baking tray.
5. Bake for fifteen minutes or until golden and puffy.

You can make these up and freeze before baking. On the day you want them cooked, place into the hot oven and bake at 190C for 20-25mins or until golden and puffy.

Mini chicken Parmigiana (Serves 4)

1 jar Mum’s Sause

1. Preheat the oven to 190C.
2. Lightly coat the chicken in flour before dipping in the egg wash and then the breadcrumbs. Place onto a lined baking tray.
3. Drizzle the chicken with olive oil and bake for 25mins, turning the chicken over after fifteen minutes before removing the tray from the oven.
4. Spread Mum’s Sause over the chicken and cover with cheese.
5. Place the tray back into the oven and bake for five minutes until the cheese has melted.
