CONSTANTLY being in a rush, looking tired, and spending your life thinking about food and what to cook are the key signs of being a mum, says a new study.

Thinking about what to cook can stress mums out

Thinking about what to cook can stress mums out

Researchers polled 2,000 British mums and found that other common traits include going out shopping for the day and only returning with stuff for the children, panicking about a late night and crying at everything to do with the kids.


Rebecca Miah from Red Tractor Beef and Lamb said: “We conducted this light hearted research to show how special mums are, and to illustrate that all parents are in the same boat, a really busy one!

“We know this is because many British mothers juggle childcare with a job, house work and a multitude of other tasks. What is interesting is how often mums spend thinking about food, cooking, and shopping for groceries – it’s a huge part of the planning that goes into raising children.

“This is why we’ve introduced quick and easy ‘short cut’ mini roasts – small joints which can be popped in the oven, which means even if mums are feeling a bit bedraggled they can still serve up a nutritious filling meal, before taking themselves off to bed at 9pm!”
