Recently, Mission Foods Singapore threw me a challenge to surprise my children by making them a “fun and creative meal made from healthy wraps” for Children’s Day.
Challenge accepted, I say! These days, anything that falls in the category of the Food Department goes straight to their father. Hurhurhur.
So I told the husband about this challenge and asked him to think of something that would get the kids to eat wraps. The kids have never eaten anything with wraps, and so it was a challenge on two counts: one, to make something healthy or fun or creative; and two, to make something they would eat.
He took up the challenge gamely with the following:
Step 1:Sear fresh prawns with olive oil and a dash of salt and pepper, and then dice
Step 2: Dice onions and tomatoes and toss with a dash of olive oil
Step 3: Mash kiwi of the yellow kind
Step 4: Mix all ingredients
Step 5: Add pan-seared chicken breast (optional)
Step 6: Put them all in a Mission Foods wrap
Step 7: Enjoy
Wa la. A simple wrap-tastic meal that’s done in less than an hour.
A healthy meal with fruit, veggies, carbs and protein.
Did the kids eat the wraps and enjoy their first experience? Well, let’s just say we might try tacos the next time because they kept screaming roti prata and I wasn’t about to pass the sugar.
Disclosure: Mission Foods Singapore sent us the wraps that were used for this challenge. All opinions – and the no-fuss recipe – are our own. No child was harmed for being worked as labour to mash the kiwi.
