Snack whilst watching sport

Three perfect sports-watching snacks - and they're healthy too

Watching the big game calls for something tasty to nibble on. These recipes are easy to prepare, delicious – and healthy too (sshh, don’t tell the kids!)

Whether your family is football-crazy or cricket-mad, there are lots of great sporting events coming up this summer.

We’ve got some crowd-pleasing treats that you can rustle up in no time. And, unlike a lot of shop-bought snacks or takeaways, they’re nutritious too.

Chicken nuggets

Chicken nuggets are a perennial family favourite and so much healthier when you cook them yourself.

At a glance: cut skinned, boned chicken into nugget sizes, dip in egg and roll in well-seasoned breadcrumbs (put two or three slices of fresh bread in the blender). Place on a greased baking tray and put in the oven at gas mark 6 (200°C, 400°F) for about 15 minutes.

Crab cakes

These might sound exotic but they’re super-easy to prepare and seem to go down well with even the fussiest of kids (though it might be wise to call them fishcakes!).

At a glance: in a processor, blitz a couple of chillis, the zest and juice of a lime, a stalk of chopped lemongrass, 2 finely chopped spring onions and a tbsp of fish sauce. Add 220g of firm white fish and 2x 170g tins of white crab meat. Pulse to combine. Add a beaten egg, 50g of desiccated coconut and 50g of finely chopped green beans. Mix, before shaping into small fishcakes and shallow frying for a couple of minutes on each side.

Potato wedges

Everyone loves a potato wedge and, with the skins left on, they’re packed full of nutrients too. Serve with ketchup, mayo or whatever else you fancy.

At a glance: wash and cut medium potatoes lengthways into wedges, coat with a little olive oil and bake for 35 minutes at gas mark 6 (200°C, 400°F).
