A simple spread of raw veg, nutritious dips, mackerel paté and bread makes for a really balanced lunch and can be pulled together in minutes. Stick to crunchy veg (avoiding raw cauliflower or broccoli which are best left cooked) and keep it colourful.

1. Get your little ones to make the dips with you and arrange on a platter.
3. Prepare the veggies together - kids can help wash lettuces and dry the leaves in a salad spinner. Beware of vegetable peelers, which tend to be very sharp and are not for little fingers.
