You can’t get much better than mac and cheese.

Bean and Cheese Burrito
These are super simple to make school snacks for kids. Just boil some kidney beans and toss them in a seasoning mix like salt, pepper, paprika, butter etc. Get some wheat tortillas and line with a coleslaw of shredded lettuce, onions, cabbage, and carrots. Throw in some sliced bell peppers and chopped up tomatoes. Garnish with cheese and roll the burrito. You can make up some and throw them in your freezer. Take them out when you need them or put them in your kid’s school lunch box.

Toast with Toppings
Toast is not just for breakfast anymore! You can make varied spreads and toppings with a bunch of vegetables. Our favorite is the garlic and spinach spread. Just sear some chopped garlic, chili flakes, onions and a couple of mushrooms together, add a cup of spinach and a bit of cheese, blitz it and you’re done. Spread it on a slice of freshly toasted bread and chomp in!
Simple Fried Rice
