Filled wraps - ham, chicken, cheese, grated carrot, cucumber, i normally put into pots and kids can make their own up served with crisps.

Pasta with ham and grated cheese, veggie sticks or garlic bread
Kids love pasta with frankfurters and Bolognese sauce mixed in either with garlic bread or veggie sticks.

Jacket potatoes
Noodles
Beans on toast / cheesy beans on toast

How old are your dc, i only have 4 ranging from 3-12 years old and finding with the heat they arent actually eating as much as normal they are just picking through the day.
We normally start the mornings ( on weekends or in half term) with either scrambled eggs, bacon and toast.
Pancakes, youghurt, fruit
My son loves crepes so will eat a couple of these most morning

My kids favourite meal that is quick and full of veg is pasta -

Rigatoni pasta
Fry bacon, mushrooms and add in sweet corn and broccoli tips at the end (i precook the broccoli) but literally you could add most veg

For the sauce 1/2 tub of cream cheese, 1/2 pot of tomato pesto, 2 tablespoons of tomato purée. And a sprinkle of cheese on top!

Spaghetti bake or any pasta bake

Wraps on the table with sliced salad veggies and either cooked chicken or halloumi

If their appetites are growing and they are therefore ravenous, you may find they are more willing to eat whatever you dish up, fussy or not...

Any dietary needs?

Just that really,
With 6 weeks off with 6 children, need to think of cheap and filling meal ideas for a pretty fussy bunch 🙄 any ideas would be much appreciated. Struggling this year financially- their all growing fast so appetites are through the roof 😂
