This savoury frittata is suitable for vegetarians and is a great source of protein, vitamin B12 and iron. Not too big, not too small, it’s perfect for an after-school snack, or a welcome addition to the lunchbox.

The combination of delicious, creamy feta with the nutritional goodness of greens makes it a hit with kids and adults alike.
