These yummy recipes use store cupboard essentials and are perfect for little chefs to help make. They are also great if you haven’t managed a food shop but still want something that’s nutritious and delicious. 

Brown Rice Pilaf

This tasty recipe is a real crowd pleaser. Your little chef can help separate the broccoli into small florets and sprinkle on the pine nuts.  

Lentil Soup

A warming soup that’s full of protein to help keep your family fuller for longer. Your little one can help rinse the lentils and stir the soup. 

Low Sugar Granola

This recipe is so easy to make using store cupboard essentials like oats and nuts. Little helpers can help whisk the egg whites and mix everything together.  

Green Pea Hummus

A quick dip that your little one will love, using chickpeas and lemon juice. We like ours with Pitta Chips or our Mini Chicken & Veg Bites

Homemade Tomato Sauce

This is a great base for lots of recipes – like our Beef Meatballs and Aubergine Bake or simply stirred through plain pasta. It stores well in the freezer and your little chef can help measure out all the ingredients.


We hope these nutritious recipes, using what you already have in your store cupboard, lend a helping hand at mealtimes.
