The full-time mum laid down some paper and spread a huge pile of chips on it along with a bowl of dipping sauce.

With the kids sat around the feast they can all reach the food without the need for 16 individual plates.

Jeni Captioned the post simply as “lunch!

“Just feeding the kids.”

And, fellow parents loved the easy idea.

One person wrote: “Best lunch ever.”

Another added: “These are the best lunches during the holidays. Ours kids love it too. Enjoy.”

And a third exclaimed: “No better lunch! A favourite weekend lunch in our house…

“Literally getting hot chips right now cause it’s rainy and thats what you do."

Jeni often shares snaps of her humongous meals and grocery shopping trips online.

She previously explains that the family devours 36 litres of milk a week, along with 72 eggs, 30 chicken drumsticks, a dozen loaves of bread and 24 loo rolls.

The mum claims people accuse her of being a harder when she buys her massive £232 weekly shops.

Jeni and Ray have 16 children: Jesse, Brooke, Claire, Natalie, Karl, Samuel, Cameron, Sabrina, Tim, Brandon, Eve, Nate, Rachel, Eric, Damian and Katelyn.
