How you can help sick kids with a simple bolognese

The easy meal has the potential to help hundreds of kids in hospital.

From today, there's a delicious new pre-made pasta sauce on the market, which will help you to create a tasty family meal all while raising funds to help sick children across Australia.

Mum's Sause is available to buy from Coles supermarkets for $3. Fifty cents from every purchase will be donated to a children's hospital in your local state or territory.

The idea behind the Mum's Sause product was actually inspired by recent research that found half of all children hospitalised suffer from moderate to severe homesickness.

Coles Chief Property and Export Officer, Thinus Keeve, says mum’s cooking is often what kids missed most when they are in hospital, so it's been developed to taste just like home cooking.

“Mum’s Sause represents an amazing way for us to fundraise for children’s hospitals in a co-ordinated way across Australia. It has national reach but also has a local impact for sick children in every state and territory,” Thinus said.

“It’s a new product developed specifically to raise funds for children’s hospitals and it’s going to be sold in more than 800 Coles supermarkets.

"It has real ingredients, no added sugar or artificial nasties. It uses mum's secret ingredient, pumpkin to give it a natural sweetness and be delicious for the whole family,” he says.

You can find Mum's Sause in the pasta aisle of your local Coles, or buy it online from here.
