Serving suggestions

For little ones with larger appetites or for those over 5 years old, we suggest serving an additional side with our meals. For some inspiration, Lucy Upton shares a range of nutritious and tasty serving suggestions below!

  • Chilli con Carne

    Team with mashed or sliced avocado for a dose of extra fats. Don't forget the tortilla crisps for dunking!

  • Mac & Cheese

    Level up this meal with extra sprinkles; spring onions, shredded chicken, herbs or crushed sunflower seeds.

  • Fish Pie

    Add extra fibre to this fish dish with a side of juicy corn on the cob.

  • Pasta Primavera

    Pair with a side of fresh tomato slices covered in olive oil to add some extra fats.

  • Creamy Chicken & Leek Pie

    Team with green peas and a dollop of mint sauce, for extra veggies and Vitamin C.

    Elevate the protein content with a side of leftover roast chicken, stir fried prawns or tofu.
