One of my top tips on getting a fussy or picky eater to try new foods is to give them something they are familiar with. Most children love pancakes or waffles so why not add in some nutritious vegetables! You can find a whole section on homemade pancake and waffle recipes inside the Lunchbox Made Easy book if you're looking for some inspiration!
My tasty Tuscan Bean Stew makes a hearty supper for the whole family. This nourishing dish is high in protein and vegetables and is always a firm family favourite. This meal takes no time at all to prepare and is a great one to double up for freezing! It can easily be adapted for baby - just by blending to the desired consistency. Enjoy the Mediterranean flavours!
Pesto and cheese is such a fab combination! This is equally divine without heating it on a pan - just use ciabatta bread instead for a delicious sandwich. As most schools now have a nut-free policy, try making your pesto with sunflower seeds instead of pine nuts. Just as tasty, and safe to pack in the school lunch! Store the sandwiches in our portion pots to keep fresh, and pack them in our super handy and fully equipped lunch sets.
