Beans, beans, the magical fruit! The more you eat…you know the rest 😉


Makes: 2 adult or 4 toddler portions
Difficulty: easy


  • 1 can of low salt baked beans
  • 1/2 cup of reduced-fat cheddar 
cheese, grated
  • 1 tbsp of tomato purée
  • 4 thick slices of whole-wheat bread


Preheat grill to medium. 
Put the beans, cheese and tomato purée in a bowl and mix well. 
Lightly toast the whole-wheat bread on both sides. 
Spread the bean mixture on top and pop under the grill until warm and golden. 
No need for margarine or other spread as the cheese melts deliciously into the bread.

Neat cheats

You can save time by putting a slice of cheddar cheese on top instead of grating and mixing.

Make it together!

Children will love helping to stir up the beans, cheese and tomato. An example toddler portion for this would be to use about 1/4 cup of baked beans and 1 large slice of bread.

Messy fun! Sheena x
