Green couscous with halloumi & pitta bread
Semolina – made from the hard outer part of wheat – is used to make couscous. Like pitta bread, couscous provides toddlers with a great source of slow-release energy. The watercress is a excellent source of vitamins A and C, while the tomatoes are packed with immune-boosting antioxidants.
