I’m always looking for ways to make snacks healthier around these parts. I’m pretty lucky in that Emma likes fruit a LOT. And Lucy likes food. Just food. All the time. Anytime. MORE FOOD, MAMA.
But still, if I gave Emma the option of an apple or Oreos, I’m pretty sure she’d pick Oreos. Frankly, so would I, but that’s not what we’re talking about.
So when she came home from preschool with a recipe for apple burritos, I was all over it. Actually, so was she.
We FINALLY busted out the apples yesterday and gave it a shot. This is an adaptation of the actual recipe, since we are dairy-egg-peanut free, now.
cream cheese – we use soy cream cheese, mmmmm
cinnamon and sugar
apples – YES, I am “that mom” who over-pays for the pre-sliced apples
Step 1: warm up a tortilla for the baby to eat so that you can actually get this done in a timely manner
Step 2: warm up another tortilla and spread some cream cheese on it
Step 3: sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar
Step 4: scatter some apples around
Step 5: roll roll roll it up
Step 6: eat
This was a total Emma-approved snack!
A D.W. approved snack [more on life with D.W. later]
A Lucy-approved snack
A Lucy-foot-approved snack
So easy, so good! I even took a bite of it, even though I’m trying not to snack every time the girls snack since Miss Lucy snacks a LOT, and Emma practically had to kick me in the shins to get it back.
