This recipe was certainly a hit tonight at dinner, after a full day at school followed by swimming, it didn’t last long on anyone’s plate! We love using different flavours and ingredients with our charges and have found it to be one of the best ways to keep children interested in food and reduce the chance of them becomming fussy eaters.
