I'm cooking later for friends (assuming I find the energy by then), so can I just do cheese on toast and cucumber for the kids - or would you call social services on me?

oooh would be good enough for me can you not add baked beans?

okapi Mon 25-Jul-05 17:16:48

yes it's ok and no, I wouldn't call social services

BarefootMama Mon 25-Jul-05 17:18:54

BareFootAngel Mon 25-Jul-05 17:19:37

purpleturtle Mon 25-Jul-05 17:20:17

phew!

Thanks for that.

cheese = protein and fat
toast = carbohydrate
cucumber = veg

sounds like a balanced meal to me

BareFootAngel Mon 25-Jul-05 17:21:50

ooh add strawberry nesquick ,,dairy and more fruit

KristinaM Mon 25-Jul-05 17:42:45

dairy yes. though i think you may be kidding yourself about the fruit

flamesparrow Mon 25-Jul-05 17:47:45

If something's pink and it says strawberry on the pack, then it definately counts as fruit

What's wrong with cheese on toast and cucumber? Add some fruit/yoghurt and it's a good meal!

Sounds fine to me. I had cheese on toast for my supper yesterday. With a nice glass of wine. Not that I'd particularly recommend that for your kids - save it for yourself.

unless you're using kraft cheese slices, that is

well, mine had beans on toast(and half my bacon and mushroom omellete.....which I was really enjoying I might add!) so IMO it's absolutley fine

glad im not the only one who feeds my child cheese on toast! Jess loves it at lunch time!

(DP and i are getting a curry later!!!)

Are you going to bother to toast the bread?? How very energetic of you!

Nightynight Mon 25-Jul-05 18:25:10

thats a gourmet meal in our house.

It's ok, Caligula, I delegated the making of the cheese on toast to dh. Actually, we were inspired by the snacks we've been asked to review, and found a bit of ham to go on it too! After all that great, stupendous effort, ds had gone to sleep on the living room floor and could not be woken to eat it!

my ds eats bread without butter on a regular basis- you going to call the SS on me? ....
