Tortilla Pocket

Fixing kids snacks and dinners is always a daunting task. You have to think of ways of providing them the required amount of nutrients. Getting them to eat vegetables and to drink milk is a challenge. I am sure most of you have faced this if you have little kids. Try this fun to eat, whole wheat tortilla pocket.
It has vegetables which provide fibre, olives and olive oil providing some good fat and cheese with some calcium. Of course using whole wheat flour to make tortilla or roti to put the filling into makes it extra fibrous and healthy.

I have made a capsicum/bell pepper sauce to go with the pockets but you can also use some ketchup instead. But I assure you, making the sauce fresh at home makes a difference and is definitely healthier. Try more kid friendly recipes from FOI, chapathi rolls, spinach corn quesadilla.
