Is it teething time for your little one?
Lunch is often a meal that is neglected and most people put very little effort into preparing delicious and nutritious mealtime options, instead relying on the same old tired sandwich combinations.
 
However, with the summer finally here and the sun starting to shine, it’s time to make the most of lunchtime and enjoy it outdoors. Jazz up your lunchtime and break away from the sandwich with the scrumptious McVitie’s Lunchtime Flatbreads, a great new alternative to boring bread.
 
McVitie’s Lunchtime Flatbreads are low in calories, containing just 43 calories per slice and are deliciously tasty when served with your favourite toppings and dips.
 
To get your imagination flowing, Broadcaster and Food Writer Rozanne Stevens and McVitie’s Lunchtime Flatbreads have created some mouth-watering recipe ideas to jazz up your lunch this sunny season!
