sausages and nuggets are full of crap most of the time, I would try to limit them and eat as high quality ones you can. What about making your own nuggets out of chicken breasts?

I make a cereal bar. It contains a lot of the foods you mention and a few other things that are good for you:
Add a pint of milk per day and you are well on your way to better eating. Milk, eggs, oats, seeds, nuts and you only need to add fruit & veggies and a little meat.

3 cups of porridge oats
1 cup of dried cranberries
1 cup of sunflower seeds or mixed seeds
1 cup of nuts (choose ones that you like) Brazil nuts, hazelnuts and almonds are all good!
3 eggs (beaten)
150 ml olive oil
150 ml honey

Mix together to combine and press into a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
Bake for about 20 mins at 180 degrees. Cut into slices and cool. Makes about 12 slices.

They're really yummy - lots of protein - (eggs, nuts), no trans fats (uses olive oil), honey and dried fruit - makes it sweet instead of sugar and lots of energy / complex carbs / roughage in the form of healthy seeds and oats.

One for breakfast with a glass of milk and most nutritionists would be happy.

Cheese, baked beans and a baked potato for lunch with another glass of milk.

Chicken or fish with veggies and something nice and crispy like chips or wedges (as a treat!)

(Jamie Oliver recommends frozen spinach!) I buy it now and drop the individual little bundles of freeze dried spinach into everything I cook. Very quick and easy source of iron and dropped into a tomato based sauce the iron and vitamin C work together for better absorption.

Oranges are good too to eat with iron rich food.

In addition to the multivitamin supplement, I would add magnesium tablets as multivitamin tablets don't have enough. They have protein powder that you can mix with milk. Also, nuts are a good snack if you need to bulk up.

Hummus is healthy as are bananas and Quorn sausages (they're low in fat) and Quorn is meant to be a good source of protein.

My diet is dreadful, I really would like to pull my finger out and get back on top of it but just can't seem to find it in me at the moment.
