Somedays, you just can’t get kids to eat, and you need to use a little magic to make it happen. One of my favorite tricks for getting my little guy to eat are these Toddler Quesadillas. Let me show you how to put these together!
Toddler Quesadillas | Quick and Cute Lunch Idea
- Flour tortillas, any size you have on hand.
- Non-stick spray
- Cheese grater
- Cookie cutter. I used a bunny, but you can use your child’s favorite animal or shape.
Start by laying our your tortillas and use the cookie cutter to cut out your shapes. Try to use as much of the tortilla as possible, and cut any leftover tortilla into half circle or triangle shapes.
Go ahead and grate your cheese. Please, it makes everything taste better when you grate your own cheese rather than using the bagged stuff. Take one of your shapes, and cover it with your cheese.
Top it with the other shape. Get all of your shapes filled with cheese and ready to go. Start warming up your pan on medium heat and spray it with your non-stick spray. Set your shapes on the pan and cook until the first side is getting crispy, and then flip them over. Cook until the cheese is melted and the second side is nice and crispy.
Then just pop them out onto a plate and let them cool. You don’t want any cheese burns! Then serve these Toddler Quesadillas and watch your picky eater light up. My son calls these bunny pizza!
You can also add whatever else your child likes into these. Pepperoni, ham, pineapple, veggies, etc. Also, play around with different types of cheese to change things up. The biggest thing with getting toddlers to try new things is to slowly incorporate new flavors and textures. I’ll be sharing some other ways to entice picky eaters over the next few months!
