Claire Wright from shares 3 simple ways to prepare squash that the whole family will enjoy.

This simple coleslaw has just a few ingredients and is an easy way to get more veg into your kids. Healthier and cheaper than shop-bought coleslaw, it takes just a few minutes to make.


Grate the cabbage and carrot (and apple, if using) coarsely. If you have a food processor, use the basic grater attachment to do this in seconds, but a box grater will do the job just as well with a little more elbow grease and a few extra minutes.

Stir through the mayonnaise and lemon or lime juice. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Serve with seeds and fresh herbs, if using.

Kids in the Kitchen

If using a food processor, get the kids to push the buttons. If grating by hand, show the kids how to grate carefully, letting them do the first bit before their hands get too close to the teeth. Have the kids add the other ingredients and mix everything together. Get them to taste and add seasoning, and if using the herbs and seeds, have them sprinkle it over before serving.
