(Main recipe only – doesn't include extras or drink)


Cut the bagel in half, toast and leave to cool.


Drain the salmon and remove the bones. Mix with the mayonnaise and pepper.

The fish bones in tinned salmon are edible and contain calcium, but remove them if your child doesn't like the texture.


Spread the mixture on one half of the bagel, add the cucumber and lettuce and then top with the other half of the bagel.

Prepare the salmon mixture the night before and keep in the fridge to save time in the morning.
