On the Back Burner


Pre-prepared postnatal meals

‘On the back burner’ was created in 2014 when the need for wholesome, delicious easy meals for the whole family postnatally became clear to me. I didn’t want to spend the final weeks/months of my 5th pregnancy preparing meals that myself and my family of 7 could eat while I recovered. It all seemed too hard, so I put it on the back burner. I was unable to find a business that catered to my situation, so I started my own.

All our meals at ‘On the Back Burner’ are created with the best quality ingredients with the love of women who love their food and families. Our meals are frozen so you can order prior to birth and have them ready for you when you do. My beloved courier (and husband) can deliver refrigerated to your door any where in Melbourne for a small delivery charge.

We will add to our meals list as we go, at the moment we are serving the below..
