Delicious, healthy and colourful. Be creative with the vegetables – mix and match depending on what the children like!

Red meat is a great source of iron for children, and the cheesy sauce makes lasagne a big hit with children everywhere!
Children should have 2 portions of fish per week (up to 4 portions for boys), including an oily fish, such as salmon or mackerel. This fish pie can be cooked as a family meal, or separated into individual ramekins for toddlers. This dish can also be frozen.
