This is a great way to mix things up and give your kid something new and fun to bring for lunch!
Potato Salad Wrap
Prep time: 5 min Total time: 5 min Makes 1.5 serving
Wraps are so fun. Take anything you like, wrap it with a tortilla and there you have it: it's a wrap! So let's make some potato salad.
3 Multi-grain Tortillas
2 Sp Mayonnaise
1 Boiled Potato
1 Hard Boiled Egg
Grab a boiled potato and a hard boiled egg, cut both of them into cubes. Now mix them with 2 spoons of mayonnaise, salt, pepper and the juice of 1 lime (salt and pepper to taste). Fill tortillas with the mix and wrap them up, then cut in half and serve.
Tip: Snack on the remaining potato salad with crackers! 😛
Air Popped or Paper Bag Microwave Popcorn
Prep time: 10 - 20 seconds Total time: 3 minutes Makes 1 serving
The great thing about making your own air popped popcorn or paper bag microwave popcorn is that you don't need oil, and you don't need butter, so they're super healthy.
1/4 Cup of Popcorn
Paper Bag (in case you don't have a hot air popcorn maker)
Put the popcorn on your hot air popcorn maker and wait for them to pop.
If you don't have a hot air popcorn maker simply put them in a paper bag. Fold the end of the bag 3 times and set your microwave for 3 minutes. Stop your microwave when the popping stops (the time it takes for popcorn to pop varies from one microwave to another). Add salt to taste and you're all set!
Tip: Careful when opening the bag, it's hot!
Prep time: 2 min Total time: 7 min Makes 2 serving
This treat is just like unicorns and rainbows. It's a classic kid treat that everybody likes.
1/2 Cup of Melting Chocolate
2 Wooden or Plastic Stick
Ambiguous Amount of Sprinkles
Melt the chocolate on either the oven or the microwave. Peel the banana and cut it in half. Place the stick on the cut end of the banana. Cover the banana in the melted chocolate and sprinkle the sprinkles! Put it in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Tip: Sprinkle the sprinkles over the sprinkles so that they fall on the sprinkles, that way they don't make a mess. We know what we just did. It was intentional.
