Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay and his daughter Matilda developed a new range of delicious and healthy kids’ convenience meals exclusively for Checkers.
Finding time to prepare wholesome, yet tasty meals for children is often a serious challenge for parents in today’s time-pressed society. That’s why Checkers enlisted the help of Ramsay and his daughter Matilda to develop the ideal meal solution for kids.
Approved by more than 200 fussy youngsters and busy moms, the Oh My Goodness! range not only tastes great, it also comes with a no-junk promise. All meals are free from MSG, added sugar and salt, and contain no added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Bursting with flavour, the meals consist of locally sourced vegetables and certified free range beef and chicken.
“From the outset, we were adamant that the Oh My Goodness! range had to be packed with goodness without compromising on taste. As a busy father to four children, Gordon Ramsay understood the challenge only too well,” commented Neil Schreuder, Marketing Director for Checkers.
The supermarket chain is so confident in the end product that the new range even comes with a Taste Guarantee: if children do not like the taste, Checkers will gladly refund the purchase.
There are currently five meals in the Oh My Goodness! range, each retailing for R29.99 and available only from Checkers:
• Beefy Cottage Pie - free range beef mince topped with buttery sweet potato mash
• Chicken, Bacon & Corn Pie - free range chicken breast pieces with bacon & sweetcorn in a cheese sauce topped with sweet potato mash
• Cheesy Macaroni - creamy, cheesy cauliflower sauce with macaroni, topped with cheddar
• Cheesy Chicken, Rice & Veg - free range chicken breast pieces in a cheesy sauce with broccoli, corn & nutty brown rice.
• Spaghetti Bolognaise - free range beefy bolognaise sauce with whole-wheat spaghetti, topped with cheddar

Retailers of a certain age will be able to cast their minds back to the 1990s when they didn’t need to look much further than the trusted combo of a ‘POS’ and supply chain management tool. A lot has changed in the decades that have passed since an ever-increasing amount of functions are running in the back end, so a typical retailer now uses a multitude of systems, including marketing systems, communications, RFID, ECMS, ESS, IMS, ICMS, DSS, WMS and many others. There’s been talk of Big Data across multiple business sectors in recent years, and retail is clearly an area where vast amounts of it have been created.
