Kid friendly chefs salad

Kid friendly chefs salad




    • 6 cherry tomato (halved)
    • 1/3 capsicum
    • 6 slice 97% fat-free ham (deli)
    • 50 g cheddar cheese



Prepare vegetables – peel and cut carrot into long sticks; cut cucumber into strips, remove inner seeds if you like; slice tomatoes into halves, slice capsicum.

Prepare proteins – roll up ham slices or cut into long strips. Cut cheese into long strips.

Arrange all ingredients on a plate in groups of individual foods so the child can choose what they like.

Serve with soft wholemeal bread and a glass of milk. Let your child eat with their fingers.

Serving Suggestions


  • Cheese and ham are the cornerstone of a Chef’s salad but after that it’s really what you’ve got hanging around in the fridge. Any combo of vegetables and cold meats or chicken works well. Sometimes I like to add green grapes or a few blueberries for a sweet note.
  • If your child is fussy about eating their food separately, arrange the long strips in a nice pattern, grouping the single foods together so “nothing touches each other”.
