With myself running a daycare and having two kids of my own, one of which is starting school in one week, finding kid friendly snacks and lunch time meals is a must. My son is a fairly picky eater, who refuses to try anything new. Flour tortillas are a food he will eat with almost anything. They make a nice change to basic sandwiches, make great snack foods and I can make many different kinds of dinner foods with tortillas. Mission tortillas are a favorite in our home and at any given time you can open our bread drawer to find a package of them. We seriously use them for breakfast, snacks, and many dinner time favorites. Mission – Back To School is here to help you with creating fun snacks and lunches your kids will surely eat.
One of our favorite after schools snacks are peanut butter and cream cheese jelly roll ups. They are easy to make, portable and kids love them. Here is a recipe on how to make these yummy treats.
4-8 Mission tortillas
1-2 oz softened cream cheese
1/8-1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1-8-1/4 cup jam or jelly(my kids only eat Smuckers grape jelly)
Heat the tortillas wrapped in a damp paper towel for around 30 seconds. In a bowl combine the cream cheese and jelly, mix well. Spread over one tortilla. Cover with another tortilla and spread with peanut butter. Roll up the tortilla. Repeat with the rest of your Mission tortillas. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours. Remove from the wrap and cut into one inch pieces….Enjoy.
This is a snack I use after school for my kids as well as the daycare kids on occasion. I do use sugar free jam when possible, but like I said I have a picky son. He loves these so I do use natural peanut butter to make a little more healthy.
Another snack we love are cinnamon crisps. These are simple and make another great snack for kids.
1 tortilla cut into 8 wedges
1 tsp melted butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon
dash of allspice
1/4 tsp sugar
Preheat oven to 350. In a small bowl, mix the spices and sugar. Mist a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the tortilla wedges on a baking sheet and brush with butter. Sprinkle with the spice mixture and bake 6-8 minutes.
Mission Tortillas are a great choice, and budget friendly. They also contain 0 grams Trans fat per serving and are cholesterol free. Perfect for our family. My kids enjoy making their own meals when I cook tacos at home. When we have taco night(usually on Wednesdays) they build their own taco. It’s fun and they are getting hands on time with mom, and hopefully will learn to make healthy choices in their future. If you’re looking to make fun meals the kids will enjoy pick up Mission Tortillas the next time your out shopping. They are available in small(6″), medium(8″) and large (10”) sizes.
