Simple fun ideas for quick kids' meals from Warburtons

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To fetch her poor doggie a bone.
But when she got there
The cupboard was bare
And so the poor doggie had none !

I sometimes feel a bit like Old Mother Hubbard when I dash in from work, open the fridge and am faced with ... well, not a lot ! These simple ideas are not only quick to rustle up using nothing but store cupboard basics, they are also guaranteed to appeal to the kids. Trust me, we tried them !


Chicken & peppers or Cheese, tomato and Rocket Pizza 

Serves 2
·        2 Warburtons Square-ish Wraps      
Tomato puree        
 Cooked torn chicken      
 Char grilled Aubergines, Red and Yellow peppers     
 Cherry Tomatoes     
 Mozzarella Cheese
Mixed Herbs
   Rocket Leaves


·        Spread a thin layer of tomato puree on both Wraps
·        Top one with chicken and vegetables and the other with cheese, tomato and herbs.
·        Cook in a hot oven (200oC/400oF/Gas Mark 6)
·        Garnish with Rocket leaves.


The girls already love wraps  so they jumped at the chance to try out these Warburtons Square-ish Wraps. I must admit, I'd never thought of heating them up as pizza bases before, usually using them as cold wraps or for fajitas. They decided to create "four seasons" pizzas using tuna/sweetcorn, ham/pineapple, pesto/chicken and cheese/ham as toppings and ate the whole lot ! They loved the fact that they could get hands on and make whatever they felt like and using the wraps as pizza base is so much quicker than making pizza bases from scratch. Definitely one that we'll be trying again. The toppings seemed to fall off much less than it does on usual round wraps/pizzas too.

Sausages and beans on Warburtons White Toastie loaf (Children’s brunch)
Serves 1 Tip: for more children’s double the portion sizes

1 slice Warburtons White Toastie loaf 
1 sausage
100g baked beans 
3 cherry tomatoes (approximate 20g)

Grill the sausage until cooked through and golden brown and slice into 2cm pieces
 Heat baked beans in a pan and simmer gently for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally
Place cherry tomatoes under the grill alongside the sausages for approx. 3 mins or until slightly soft
Toast 1 slice Warburtons White Toastie loaf, cut into triangles and position onto a plate
Pour the beans on top of the triangles
Layer on sausage slices
And garnish with cherry tomatoes


Beans on toast is a no-brainer but I'd never thought of adding sausages and cherry tomatoes to liven things up. If you feel bad about this not covering all the essential food groups, you might like to know that Heinz beans (and, strangely enough, even Spaghetti Hoops - can't quite get my head around that one !) count towards your five-a-day.

  1. I don't think I could rustle up the pizza out of my store cupboard ingredients - would definitely have to buy mozzarella cheese! But I didn't know spaghetti hoops counted as one of your five a day. That's brilliant because my children love them - and beans.
