Some suggestions for flat breads and how to use them with your picky eater.
All of the ideas are super simple:
1. None of us has the time to waste on endless prep!
2. Picky eaters, in general, prefer the simple
3. If it’s a new thing it can often take time before it’s accepted so easy is essential!
The photos are also not going to be magazine quality. I will be whipping these up quickly in the kitchen and then taking a snap to make it easier for you to see what I’m talking about.
The focus for me is going to be less about the food and more about some of the thinking behind.
I would love feedback (good or bad), suggestions, and please share wins!!
Crunchy is often the easiest for a picky eater. It’s easier to control in the mouth, gives sensory feedback (even the sound can be reassuring) and is generally more comfortable than soft or squishy.
If your child is not a wrap eater, I would suggest we upgrade the texture! This can be done by baking in the oven. I bake at 180 for a few minutes. If you cook until it just starts to brown it will be like a giant cracker – what’s not to love?
Adding our child’s favourite topping or, using a favoured dip would be my recommendation.
Think small. Big portions are often overwhelming, so starting with a tiny triangle, for example, would be perfect. I actually messed this up and forgot to cut before I toasted – not so smart!!
