You can’t get more foolproof than this…..everyone knows that children like to make or assemble their own meals don’t they? Something that you put in front of them that you’ve prepared could be rejected but let the child do it themselves then they can’t get enough of it.

Right…..this is so difficult so be prepared:


  • Cooked chicken
  • Cucumber cut into strips
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Carrots cut into batons
  • Grated cheese
  • Anything else that takes your fancy
  • Wraps

1. Put everything on the table and let the children fill their wraps with whatever they want and then roll it up. Then eat.

Serve with rice and salad.

My other favourite dinner which the children never fail to eat is Pasta Bake. Cook the pasta and make a cheese sauce. Add chopped cooked chicken, and bacon if you like. Add a tin of sweetcorn and mix all the ingredients together. Place in a dish and sprinkle with grated cheese and allow to brown in the oven. Delicious.

  1. Yay, I’ve just taken chicken out to defrost and was staring at my pack of wraps waiting for inspiration to strike! I will make these tonight and let the Little Man decide what he wants to put inside :-D!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Hi,
    Love the sound of this but I find it really hard to get good quality wraps that don’t have additives in them. Anyone else have that problem or if not, please let me know the make!!…

  3. Baba loves anything that he can put together himself. Wraps and chicken our a firm favourite in our house too, and that is a great way to get veggies into him as he just picks them up and tries them. xx

  5. Anything my children can make themselves they love! We use a few different fillings, one of my children will eat tuna but not the others, some like chicken and so on so I put it all out and they can choose what they want and everyone eats something. And I don’t get anyone moaning at me that they hate what I’ve cooked!

    Thanks for joining in the carnival x
