Little Dish has added chilled meals for older children to its menu.

Little Dish for Bigger Kids, at Ocado and Waitrose from next week, followed by Asda and Tesco, comprises four dishes for kids aged three to six - Chunky chicken Pot Roast, Mild beef Chilli & Rice, Mediterranean Cod & Tomato Casserole and Seven Veg Lasagne (rsp: £3.25/300g).

Like the existing Little Dish products, the new range is made with 100% natural ingredients, but the meals have a chunkier texture and the portion size is bigger.

The launch was in response to demand from parents looking “beyond the ambient aisle,” said marketing director Charlotte Tisdall.
