A clever mum has explained how she tricked her son into eating a healthy meal by putting it in a Pot Noodle cup.
Fellow parents were blown away by the tip and vowed to try it themselves.
Marcella McDonagh, who recently worked on a script about domestic abuse with Emily Florence Hutchings from Solace Women’s Aid, from Northampton, posted the healthy eating trick on Facebook.
She explained: “Fake Pot Noodle!!! So my son had his first pot noodle the other day. Wasn’t sure to be proud or not, but he loved it.
“So I found myself trying to feel better and completely scamming him with this fake (healthier) Pot Noodle!
“Yeh one day he will realise I’m a fake and a fraud, but until then… eat away my lad.”
The post quickly racked up 5,500 likes and more than 400 comments.
One mum said: “Oh my gosh… wish I'd have thought of this! Its brilliant!”
“That’s such a good idea,” added another.
“This looks so much better than a pot noodle,” commented a third.
And a fourth wrote: “This is a mum win for sure!”

To help her fellow parents out, Marcella noted: “Some asked for the recipe.
“It’s just a simple stir fry to be honest.
“Fresh noodles, fresh bag of stir fry veg, chopped up chicken and garlic."
She added" “Added a tiny bit of katsu sauce just for the colour, but guess curry powder or cumin would work.
“It’s so simple and took like four mins to make. I added zero salt.
“Just as fresh as possible.”
Top work, mum!
