Wondering what vegan food you can whip up to please even the little ones? Here are our favourite vegan-friendly, veg-packed lunches and dinners that the kids and adults can enjoy. 

Vegan Mac and cheese

This classic turned vegan is a midweek meal that will suit anyone in the household, no matter the age. It’s a simple recipe with a quick bechamel and vegan cheese melted in, for a bubbly, delightfully decadent dish that will never not be a crowd pleaser.

Vegan chickpea tuna sandwich

This sandwich, also lovingly known as ‘chuna’, is a tasty lunchbox addition and is great whether you’re off to work or school. Crushed chickpeas, a generous dollop of vegan mayo and capers give the sandwich fantastic creamy flavours and great bite, while the addition of lettuce, red onion and cucumber are fresh. 

Tempeh peanut summer rolls

These delicious and fresh rolls are a great way to pack lots of veggies onto your child’s plate, and they’ll definitely love the peanut dipping sauce. Feel free to mix and match the fillings with what veg you may have to hand and double up on the vegetables your child loves (or loathes the least!).

Caramelised onion and potato pierogi


What child doesn’t love a double carb combo? These dumplings are filled with smooth mashed potato and sweet caramelised onions, and are absolutely delicious. It’s a great recipe to make for little one to try making too. 

Vegan bean + rice burrito wraps


These savoury, earthy burritos are a great lunch or dinner that all the family can enjoy. This Mexican-inspired burrito is the perfect way to get a variety of vegetables into your children’s diet, wrapped neatly into a burrito. Feel free to mash up the avocado with some extra lemon and salt for a quick guac they’ll love.
