Fizzy grape jelly pots
Make up a whole pack of sugar-free lemon and lime jelly according to pack instructions but replace the cold water with fruity flavoured fizzy water. Divide the mixture between 6 pots or glasses and allow to cool. Chill for about an hour, then add halved grapes so they ‘float’ in the jelly. Chill until set. This makes enough snacks for two children across three days.
Egg fried rice
Fry some leftover cooked rice from yesterday with a handful of frozen soya beans, frozen sweetcorn and some grated carrot. Add a splash of reduced-salt soy sauce and crack a couple of eggs into the centre of the pan, scrambling with a spatula. You can’t reheat cooked rice twice, so only make as much fried rice as you need.
