Make the wrap fun to look at.
Sandwiches can get boring day after day, and toddlers will eventually crave something different, just as an adult does. Sandwich wraps aren't only for grown ups, either -- toddlers enjoy eating them because they are easy to hold and fun to eat. Sandwich wraps can be filled with many different foods, from a basic peanut butter and jelly to a creation of your own. Experiment with different fillings to find one your child likes the best.
1Lay a tortilla on the counter. One tortilla makes one wrap, so if your child has a large appetite, you can make two. Most toddlers will only eat one, however.
2Spread peanut butter on the tortilla, covering it completely. If your child doesn't like peanut butter or is allergic, you can use a different type of spread, such as hazelnut/chocolate spread or almond butter.
3Spread jelly on top of the peanut butter spread. Grape and strawberry are common choices, but use whatever your toddler likes the best.
4Roll the tortilla, starting at one side; keep it as tight as possible. The sticky jelly and peanut butter will help hold it together.
- Slice the tortilla into several pieces to create little pinwheels; not only does it look fun, it makes it easier for little hands to hold.Mix it up a bit by using chicken salad, tuna fish or ham, turkey and cheese in the tortilla instead of peanut butter and jelly.
