I need ideas for nutritious meals for lunch/tea time. My boys are 15 mths and almost 5 yrs old. What recipes do you use often that are easy and you KNOW the kids will eat.
I seem to have got into a rut. HELP.

Constantly looking for new ideas too - chicken stir fry with noodles is a favourite; pasta mixed with tuna and sweetcorn (and cheese sometimes); tuna and cheese toasties; tomato soup and pitta bread; macaroni cheese or cauliflower cheese (pity DH won't eat this!); any kind of baked fish with rice and peas (dd's fave); baked potatoes cut in half with the insides scooped out, mixed with butter and cheese, then put back in the skins; grilled/roasted chicken legs/thighs with potato wedges and veg..this is making me hungry

mash a banana, add some honey, nutmeg raisins and ricotta cheese and spread on a sandwich, toasted if you like, yummy for lunch.

Mine love Philadelphia and cucumber sandwiches (ds1 always says that a sandwich "has to have something tasty inside"). They also like houmus and grated carrot sandwiches, fish cakes (made in advance and frozen), pasta with any veggies, scrambled egg with added cheese (ds2 always spits this out but ds1 loves it), lamb curry with rice and peas, rice with lentils.

I will be looking out for other suggestions you get.
