My 6 yr old has suddenly become the fussiest eater in the world. What childfriendly things can I do with mince other than cottage pie, spag bol and chilli?

Meatballs, meatloaf (my fussy 4 yr olds fave), burgers

Meatballs in tomato sauce with pasta
Home-made burgers

Mince with dumplings. Kids usually love dumplings.

Oh, and mince and onions, in a giant Yorkshire pudding

Ooooh, good ideas. Esp the meatloaf and mince and tatties in a giant yorrkshire.

How would I curry the mince? Does it work well with any particular spices?

I would fry and onion, with some garlic (and a bit of fresh ginger if you have some), then either add curry powder or do the individual spices if you've got them - coriander, cumin, turmeric, chilli powder as a basic. I also add some frozen peas, sometimes the juice of half a lemon and sometimes some tinned tomatoes.

I just chuck everything I have in, really

We do meatballs (AK recipe with apple), in wraps mixed with pesto as enchiladas, with sweet potatoes as cottage pie, sloppy joe sauce with pasta (, made into small burgers or mixed through sweet potato soup (disgusting but DS loves it!)
