Wheels: Peanut Butter Banana Honey Roll-ups

My youngest grandson's first word was "car." He loves wheels--cars, trains, planes.

He's not quite as particular about his food looking like a work of art, as his sister is, but this is one lunch that he loves, "Peanut Butter Banana Honey Roll-ups".

Use a large whole wheat tortilla and spread it with peanut butter. Peel a banana and place it on the tortilla then drizzle it with honey. Roll it up and slice it into wheels.

This makes enough wheels for two children or you might want to share the wheels or do a counting game with them. How much are two wheels plus three wheels?

Then, use a second tortilla to cut out train cars, add wheels, and load it with carrot sticks (logs), raisins (coal), or apple slices (grain). Use celery strips for the track.

If you deal with peanut allergies, try hummus, grape tomatoes, or cucumber sticks on your tortilla. Serve with either a cup of milk or yogurt and you have a healthy lunch.

Do you have any kid-friendly lunch ideas? Can you turn it into a work of art? Tell me about it!

So cute. Both my grandsons love trains, so this will be a perfect lunch to share with them when I visit them in April. Thank you for the idea!

I'm glad you like it. It is amazing what you can get kids to eat if you can hide it or decorate it.
