SIL is bringing her 2.5 yo for a play date with my 2yo son today, I have said I'll make lunch but don't know what to make for them. We're all vegetarian.

Any ideas? For a quick lunch? Today??? Help!

Wraps with a variety of cheese, salad, and fruit to fill them with.

Just put it all on the table and you and SIL can assemble them with whatever the kids want inside.

Cream cheese sticks everything together, then have olives, cherry tomatoes, grapes, kidney beans, grated cheese, egg mayonaise, shredded lettuse, etc

Bread, cheeses, pickles, humous, pita bread, cherry tomatoes etc etc. V. easy and v. nice.

Or, falafel? Whizz up a couple of tins of chick peas (drained) with several large glugs of olive oil in a food mixer (or mash with a fork). Add finely chopped spring onion, ground cumin, coriander and cardamon and mix well. Form into balls, bake in oven for a bit, serve with pita, salads, chutneys, natural yoghurt?
