Tortilla Rolls – Kiddie Style!

I’m always on the lookout for new creative meals to feed M. ย When I saw these tortilla rolls I immediately thought she would love them. ย I changed up the recipe to make it more kid friendly (which means less spicy).

Here’ what when into the mix:

  • 1.5 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon mild cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1/4 tsp low-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon mild salsa

Mix everything together, spread mixture onto a whole wheat tortilla, roll tortilla up, slice & serve.

I served it with fresh spinach leaves & grapefruit sections.

I know what you’re thinking… Why fresh spinach leaves? Because every time Mr. Weekly Bite or I eat a salad she begs for the spinach leaves. ย I’m just going with it and enjoying her eating spinach while I can.

The big question is…. Did she like the meal? Here’s the verdict….

This is what she did with her plate for twenty minutes….

Final verdict?

She did not like this at all ๐Ÿ™ ย Boo. ย At least I tried… right?

After much fussing, I made her a PB&J. ย Hopefully she’ll like my next creation ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You win some and you lose some, right. I heard it takes 7 times of tasting something to know if you like it or not. I don’t know if I am ever willing to go the 7 times though. You never know unless you try though.

    My son will frequently refuse to eat or even try something one day and then happily eat it the next. Don’t give up…she may very well enjoy that meal another day! Looks delicious to me!

    I need to try those for my M. She loves all things taco. Too bad your M didn’t love them. She still looks lovely though!

    And don’t you just love those bibs? Makenzie has the same one!

    Too bad she didn’t like it ๐Ÿ™ Sounds like something I would love! I would much rather have had these than lunchables growing up.
