This chicken salad has a delicious salad dressing and if you make it for lunch or supper its also good the next day in your child's lunchbox. Having prepared some food the day before will mean less of a rush in the morning. Buy some small plastic containers with lids and it's a good idea to pack the dressing separately. This would also make a tasty pasta salad for a picnic recipe.
As well as being rich in antioxidants and minerals sweetcorn is packed with fibre to help keep your child regular.
