Say goodbye to soggy bread. Sometimes it's good to have a break from sandwiches and introduce new healthy bread options to kids' repertoires.
Here's a breakfast, lunch, or bulging snack idea that kids can easily assemble themselves and have fun in the process. It comes from my book Supercharged Food for Kids which you can find here.
The pockets can be filled with bacon and eggs at breakfast time or veggies, avocado and tuna or leftover dinner meat and spring salad ingredients and topped with homemade mayo or ranch dressing.
You can pretty much stuff in whatever you like or whatever you have available in the fridge.
The basic recipe can also be made as a flat crusty pizza and delivered to hungry mouths pretty quickly once your favorite toppings have been fixed.
Test these on your brood and let me know what you think?
