Sometimes we all need something super quick and easy at lunchtime but the ubiquitous Tuna-Mayo-on-the-go just doesn't cut it in the nutrition stakes.

This idea is perfect for making up in the morning for an easy on the go lunch. It might even mean you have time to top up your vitamin D in the summer sunshine instead of waiting in line in Pret! 

Tuna isn't the best source of omega 3, other oily fish such as salmon or mackerel is a more impressive, however, it contains a good amount of selenium - a trace mineral that plays an important role in thyroid metabolism, DNA synthesis and protection from infections. 

Tuna is also a great source of protein and tends to be a winner with children too.
