This kid’s meal is a more substantial version of tinned beans and sausages. It has a lot less sugar and salt than the tinned stuff and the kids can get involved in making dinner. When the children have been responsible for making part of their meal they feel a sense of pride that then increases their enjoyment in eating the food. It doesn’t have to be a complicated meal to give kids a huge sense of achievement.
Serves 2 Kids
4 Lincolnshire sausages
small tin of low salt and sugar baked beans
1 tbsp vegetable oil
- Squeeze the sausage meat out of the skins into a bowl then pour over the breadcrumbs. Squish everything together into a ball then pull off small pieces and roll them into meatballs. The kids enjoy this part.
- Heat the vegetable oil on a medium high heat and fry the meatballs, turning regularly until they’re brown on all sides. Tip the beans into the pan, turn the heat down to medium low and stir occasionally until the meatballs are cooked through (about 4-5 minutes). Serve with toast, cheese, fruit or vegetables.
