Being a parent typically means a daily quandary of what to serve for lunch. These little tortilla pinwheels served four ways using fruit and veg are great fun. Plus they’’re easy enough for the kids to make themselves, as my seven year old demonstrates!

HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL NEED...

  • 4 soft tortillas
  • 1-2 tbsp chocolate spread
  • Small handful strawberries
  • ¼ red pepper
  • Handful grated cheese (freshly grated, not the pre-grated coated stuff)
  • 1-2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 3-4 florets blanched baby broccoli
  • 1 large banana
  • Small handful chopped hazelnuts

So that’’s it! They’’re so simple, and you could keep them interesting by trying out almost any yummy combination.
