Some days, it just seems to impossible to get our kids to eat healthily. These ‘good for you dinners’ seem to take forever to make and have the most random ingredients to source, only for our kids to turn their noses up at it anyway. It’s a never-ending battle, and an unfair fight from the start – because let’s be real, you’d rather have pizza too.
But wait! Before you make a beeline for the frozen section, hear us out. Being healthy doesn’t have to be complicated and it doesn’t have to be plain. There are so many amazing ways to incorporate more veggies into our diets and one of the tastiest ways is this stunning vegan burrito recipe that will satisfy everyone around the table – yes everyone.
This one is great for kids, because although it looks like an eating-out or takeaway treat, it’s actually full of nutrients and goodness, meaning you sneakily get a few of their five a day into them without all the usual fuss And what’s even better? It takes less than 30 minutes to make.
