As kids love pasta and tomato sauce, this is an easy way to encourage them to try asparagus. Like the 'full of veg' tomato sauce you can always whiz the asparagus in a blender if you think they'll be suspicious of the green bits. The tomato does a good job of mellowing the flavour of the asparagus and once they're used to eating it there are loads of wonderful dishes you can introduce them to.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
