How to keep the kids (and parents) happy during school holidays

With the first of the school holidays underway this year, every parent is busy conjuring up ideas to keep the kids happy, which normally involves making sure they’re fed and entertained, right? Master this and you have a happy child. A happy child makes for a happy parent! 

An often (over)used trick is a visit to the golden arches. A ‘keep-them-fed and entertained’ meal for the kids, and a quick treat for the parents! However, it never is guilt-free or without drama. 

How about an idea that goes beyond and will truly have you and the kids lovin’ it?  

With a growing band of happy parents, we believe they have discovered the answer in a Birtelli’s home pizza-making kit! Here’s what Georgina, a mum of two energetic and curious kids, and many other like-minded parents have to say.

“The kids love throwing on their little aprons, rolling up their sleeves and getting stuck in. It’s so much fun. And that’s before they tuck into the delicious pizzas they have made. Thank you so much Birtelli’s.” 


“The excitement builds a few days before a Birtelli’s arrives at our door. Eugene gets to pick his choice of pizza, add more of his favourite toppings. The Cobble Lane pepperoni is definitely a go-to for him…and me!”

“Just wow! Not only are the ingredients freshly prepared and perfectly portioned, but the choices are also unbelievable. Our kids have always had different tastes, with one being lactose intolerant. Birtelli’s has made us all fall back in love with pizza. So much fun too!”

“Love, love, love Birtelli’s pizza boxes – the kids have tried a mix of the roll-your-own dough and pre-made bases, both are fantastic. Great ingredients, yummy drinks, delivered when we want, eco packaging…and so much more!” 

-Heather from lanarkshire

“Delicious pizzas bought to make with my granddaughter. She really enjoyed making her pizza and they all tasted amazing. Fresh ingredients all delivered within 24 hours. What a great idea! I’d definitely use Birtelli’s again. The gluten free base was also very good. Excellent product 10/10!” 


It would seem our pizza kits are making school holidays considerably tastier and more fun. 

We pack each box with freshly prepared and perfectly portioned natural ingredients from award-winning British producers in mouth-watering combinations, curated by our Michelin-starred chef. And we deliver straight to your door, so all you and kids need to do is roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. There’s little waste and lots of fun to be had. 

So, get crafting. Create moments. Smile and be happy!
