Kid Friendly Lunch

Raise your hand if lunch and dinner are the most challenging meals to get your kiddos to eat?

If I had 3 hands, they would all be raised right now. But let's face it, this post ain't gonna type itself. Am I right? 

Back to the point of this post. We all face the challenge of a picker eater. And it can get pretty frustrating trying to think of healthy meals that will get their attention and that they will actually eat. 

Well I have to share this little gem with you. It's a healthy twist on an old favorite. Pizza! My mouth waters just saying the word. And my stomach pushes outward a little bit to remind me why I shouldn't have any. 

Have no fear. This one will please the hangry little ones and you without making you undo the top button on your jeans. 

It's a Tortilla Pizza. Ok, here's a pic to really get your mouth watering. 


We had spaghetti the night before and there was leftover meat sauce (Grandma's Tomato sauce from Fixate cookbook). So we took the sauce and spread it on the tortilla, added some black olives (because my kids love black olives) and some shredded mozzarella.

I turned the oven on Broil and cooked the pizza for 5 minutes.  Just long enough to melt the cheese and brown it a little.

It looks delicious, right? Well, it was but it was also a little messy. One thing I would recommend is topping it with another tortilla and letting the cheese hold it all together.  Then just cut it with a pizza cutter. It will make it a whole lot easier for their little hands to hold onto to and keep all of the toppings from sliding out.

*** You can do this with leftover taco ingredients, ham and cheese, and a ton of other ingredients. The possibilities are endless.***

If you try you make this fun lunch with your kiddos, comment below with how it went. I would love to hear from you.
