Quesadilla "Salad Bar" Style

Quesadilla

My kids love to build with blocks, so why not build with food, too!? I love to set-up food building stations where they can pick and choose to create a masterpiece right on their plates.

Ages:
2 - 9
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. tortilla
  2. cheese
  3. toppings - olives, avacado, cooked chicken, peppers, tomatoes, beans
  1. Offering foods like this seem to get my children trying new things and making healthy choices.

  2. I gave both kids a plate with a tortilla on it and let them add what they wanted to their quesadilla.

  3. I tried to have them keep the ingredients to one side so I could fold it over in the pan.

  4. Next, I took over and popped these guys right onto a hot pan. A minute or so on each side and they were ready to eat.

  5. Yum!! She was pretty proud to have made lunch this day.
