Terrific tortillas

Tortillas are fun and easy to make – your littlies will love helping to make their own dinner!

Children love to cook and it’s a great way of encouraging them to try new foods and to discourage fussy eating.

*Some of this meal is  hob cooked, so extra special care is needed when cooking with an open flame or hot surface or using sharp knives.

Be sure to talk to your children about safety in the kitchen so they are aware of the dangers.
