Holly loves cooking for her family

Down-to-earth as ever, Holly was refreshingly honest when asked what she serves up for her three children. She previously told Asda Living magazine: "I want to fill them with goodness and make sure they don’t snack between meals. I like them to try new things, like crab and cockles.

"But I love a processed cheese slice myself, so I can’t be that militant about nutrition." A girl after our own heart.

DISCOVER: The one food Holly will NEVER eat 

If she's on the go after her This Morning duties, the star favours the humble jacket potato. She told the Food Network her ultimate comfort food is "a baked potato with real butter, cheese, and beans. But which do you put on first? I think cheese then beans to get the cheese really melty."

What does Holly Willoughby snack on? 

Holly is a fan of a healthy snack and favours carrots dipped in hummus, as well as fresh mango. But she also loves a chocolate bar as much as the rest of us!

What are Holly Willoughby's guilty pleasures?

Holly never hesitates to try a tasty sweet treat on This Morning. Over the years, Holly has tried an array of delicious sugary snacks including cake and millionaire shortbread. A self-confessed chocoholic, Holly even sought the help of British hypnotist Paul McKenna to cure her chocolate cravings during one episode of the show. He attempted to do so by making her associate the taste with something she hates – tinned tuna. We can't see that working, somehow.

What does Holly Willoughby eat for dinner?

Now that lockdown has lifted, you'll be sure to find Holly dining at upmarket restaurant Nobu with close friend Phillip Schofield. Her favourite dish is the yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño.

As for her go-to mid-week meal, the mother of three loves to whip up a simple and indulgent pasta dish – like a carbonara, mac 'n cheese or a Bolognese.

Holly is vocal about her love for a glass of wine so we imagine she's been treating herself with dinner – especially since she recently dished that she's had the worst hangover ever in lockdown!

The star also previously revealed her beverage of choice is a low-calorie vodka with soda water and lime, a perfect health-conscious treat. Sign us up to Holly's regime!
