Quick and Easy Pepperoni Roll-Ups
As a busy mom, I am always looking for lunchtime ideas that satisfy both my almost-three-year-old son’s palate as well as my own without making more than one meal. My son does not have CF, so he eats your typical modern-day toddler diet. He isn’t particularly picky so it’s not a huge challenge to feed him. I, however, do have CF and still require extra calories and fat in my meals.
Quick and easy pepperoni roll-ups are one of our favorite lunches to make together. This fun recipe is a great way to get kids into the kitchen. It is so easy my son can complete the steps by himself with supervision. He is always so proud that he made his lunch and even prouder to dip the roll-ups and eat every last bite.
The reason I love this recipe is it’s a quick and easy lunchtime meal that can easily be switched up by varying the meat, cheese, and dipping sauces. Add sides of veggies and fruits and kid-and-parent-mealtime is complete! Enjoy!
