Cheeky Monkey Sarnie

Cheeky Monkey Sarnie

We all know that fish is packed with vitamins and minerals, but getting kids to dive into those all-important two portions of fish a week can be easier said than done. So here’s a cheeky way to make fish a part of their week!  Kids will go bananas over these monkey sandwiches. And with extra vitamin D and calcium packed into the bread, this recipe will keep little learners in tip top shape!

4 slices Warburtons Half White Half Wholemeal medium bread
75g tuna, drained
1 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tsp tomato ketchup
30g cucumber, diced
1 spring onion, finely diced
2 extra slices cucumber for decorating


  1. In a bowl, flake the tuna with a fork and then stir in the mayonnaise, ketchup, cucumber and spring onion Stir in the mayonnaise, ketchup, cucumber and spring onion.
  2. Put the bread onto a board and then spread the filling over 2 slices of bread. Top with the remaining bread and sandwich together.
  3. Stamp out one large round circle using an 11 cm round cutter. Cut out a round using a 7 cm round cutter and two smaller rounds using a 4 cm cutter.
  4. Put the large round sandwich onto a plate for the face. Put the medium round on top for the nose and mouth. Add the small rounds either side for the ears.
  5. For the monkey’s eyes, nose and mouth, cut small shapes out of the cucumber.
  6. Simply wrap in cling film before popping in their lunchbox.

TOP TIP! Egg and cress is another sarnie filler winner to try! Just add a pinch of curry powder and ½ tsp mango chutney for a cheeky flavour boost!
