I made this meal, tuna, vegetables and brown rice, for George at the end of the week when there was very little in the fridge. With a can of tuna, a handful of veggies and some cooked brown rice there was a tasty and healthy meal ready for him in minutes. Adding a pinch of fresh herbs such as parsley or coriander to the mix would also add a nice boost of flavour if you are progressing on to family meals.
Nutrition Note: Brown rice is higher in fibre and more nutrient-dense than white rice making it a healthier choice for your babies and toddlers.Join us on Facebook for other foodie bits and pieces.
