As a vegetable, sweetcorn is one of your five-a-day, and it has plenty of nutritional value. Picky eaters usually love sweetcorn as it tastes sweet, and while you might think that means it’s full of sugar, an ear of corn actually has about the same number of calories as an apple and less than a quarter the sugar. Another reason why this makes a super school lunch.

You also don’t need too many dishes for this recipe. Just mix your flour, eggs, and milk with a whisk. Then fold in the sweetcorn and spring onions. You can totally do that, right? 

Okay, next you just cook them until golden brown on each side. 🙂

Now I know you’re thinking, that mango salsa is going to be a pain… But it’s not! It’s as simple as dicing up a mango, a little sweet onion (just 1/4 of an onion), and coriander. Then squeeze a lime over it and stir! Now in your back to school lunch box you have veggies, protein, and a side of fruit. Of course, I like to add more fruit or a little sweet treat just to finish off the lunch.
