DD1 is going to after school sports thing and DD2 is staying late at nursery. I'll pick them up at 5pm (home by 5.15) and they will be VERY hungry. What can I give them that is very quick, filling and tasty (and relatively heathly)?

scrambled egg on toast?
Beans on toast?
Beans and jecket potato?

They're not keen on beans - could do tuna/mayo.

Chicken strips (slice chicken breast, fry in olive oil and chicken oxo cube), mash and veg.
Boil the potatoes now then they'll be ready to mash when you get home.

My DC always eat pasta with grated cheese or cheese sauce mixed in. You could give them chopped cucumber, tomatoes and sweetcorn on the side to make it more healthy.

Nice idea scooter girl but that would take me at least 30 mins (faffing around!), another night maybe.

I'm still at work!

I've got fresh pasta so that could be quick

beans/eggs/waffles - had the same dilemma the other night (vs. a happy meal!)

Pesto pasta then

Too late now but it IS really quick - the chicken takes about five minutes max and you could maybe have noodles instead of mash for speed...
Actually noodles would be better all round (note to self smile)

They had pasta and pesto with ham plus tomatoes, cumcumber and pepper and a slice of buttered bread, followed by an orange each - food on the table within 10 mins of getting in the house. Not bad eh?
