    Mix their favourite grated hard cheese with grated apple, chopped spring onions, a squeeze of lemon and a little mayonnaise. Delicious with wholemeal bread or rolls.

Just tried the cheesy apple slaw filling with Hovis Seed Sensations bread. Easy to make and it tastes great.

i feel very cross with the way we have to potray food to our children, we used to eat all sorts when we were kids and not have any problems now, my daughter now has problems with her eating habits as she is constantly having what she should and should not eat forced down her throat, leave the children alone and let them enjoy their child hood.

I'm tempted to try the cheesy apple slaw even though I was dubious at first. I just made the nicest bagel with avocado, black pepper, smoked salmon and a little sliced red chilli to give it a kick. Highly recommend!

With comment to the marmite comment: This was in reference to its apparently high content but if you read into this it is banned because it is measured per 100 grams. I dont think you will find many adults let alone children that will consume 100 grams of marmite in one sitting! Marmite should not have been blacklisted like this as it can enrich the diet with essential B vitamins.

Just made the cheesy apple slaw for my lunch at work tomorrow. Couldn't resist tasting a bit and it was gorgeous. Instead of granary bread or rolls I used flour tortillas to make some wraps.

grandchildren loves them BUT would not even consider using marmite for children........the advert was banned on telly promoting giving to them...WHY would I want to encourage them to develop an unhealthy strong taste for salt?
