Food for Thought; Pizza Pinwheels

Food for Thought; Pizza Pinwheels

Back to nursery.  A little bit later because we were on holiday.  And a brand new one with a whole new settling in period.

The main difference in his nurseries, other than his new one being so much closer to home, is that his new one doesn’t offer a food option.  So it’s sending snacks in.

Yikes.

So this week I’ve been having a look for a variety of filling snacks to send in with him so he isn’t just on all bought food and found Pizza Pinwheels.

To be fair I also watched a video on Pizza Pinwheels on Facebook the other day and on a lot of weaning groups they are bandied round so it wasn’t an entirely new concept.

How to do it:

Preheat oven to 180degrees

      I reckon you can do sweet ones with jam or add toppings. Would have been easier with a bigger piece of pastry!

    these look yummy! Will give them a try. I have been using the little Arabic breads to make mini pizzas. If I ever get time, I may try and make up a tomato sauce that includes hidden veg in them and freeze a batch!
    Hope little one is enjoying nursery!
