We are constantly hearing about our kids eating all the wrong foods and about our weight gain in this country.
I know if it was up to my grandchildren, they would eat macaroni and cheese, bean burritos, hot dogs, pizza and cereal 7 days a week and never tire of it.
As parents and grandparents, I do feel it is important to provide healthy choices and introduce new foods on a regular basis.
So today I made a wrap, and served it with some veggie chips and chocolate chip cookies.
(Okay... so maybe the cookies are not the best thing, but they sure are good!)
Adjust the ingredients and quantities according to what your children like.
WRAPS or FLOUR TORTILLAS (I like the tomato-basil wraps or the spinach-herb)
8 oz. FAT FREE CREAM CHEESE
1 c. HIDDEN VALLEY RANCH DRESSING
MEAT (low salt luncheon meat, chicken, turkey, or tuna fish)
TOMATOES, thinly sliced
BLACK OLIVES, sliced
RED ONION, thinly sliced
CHEESE, sliced muenster or any other favorite cheese
ROMAINE or ICEBERG LETTUCE, thinly sliced
Mix together the cream cheese and ranch dressing until smooth.
Smear a small amount over the wrap.
Layer remaining ingredients adding a few dollops of the ranch dressing mixture.
Roll tightly and tie in one or two places with string. Cut in half on the diagonal, if desired.
Serve with veggie chips and fruit.
And go ahead... tuck a cookie in there too!
