Chicken Burrito Recipe

A healthy lunch idea for kids!

Get your kids excited at the sight (and smell!) of this delicious chicken burrito recipe!

The egg tortilla stuffed with juicy tomatoes, crisp bell pepper, chicken cubes, and refreshing zingy salad is a mouth-watering treat.

This easy healthy lunch idea is vibrant, tasty and filling, and will please both kids and adults. Importantly, it doesn’t contain any high-sodium sauces or preservative-loaded packaged ingredients!

Kids tend to favor chicken over other forms of meat protein due to its gentle flavor and easy-to-eat texture.

Compared to other animal proteins, it is less chewy and can be made to taste like whatever flavors it is mixed with.

Chicken is filled with choline, protein, and iron to give your child tons of energy and help them grow strong. The vegetables are bright and crunchy and will provide tons of vitamins and nutrients, with fiber too.

Prep: 20 minutes; Cook: 10 minutes; Total: 30 minutes; Yield: 4 Wraps

 

 

I hope you and your kids love this recipe.

 

FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions

Is cheese a healthy snack for children?

Cheese in moderate quantities is a healthy snack for kids. You can offer sliced cheese or string cheese, or any other form they desire. The calcium and protein in the cheese will keep them full for more extended periods!

Is it better for my child to buy a hot lunch or for me to prepare one?

Packing a lunch can be an excellent way for parents who want more control over their kids’ diets. In addition, if you have any concerns about allergies or sensitivities, packing food is often your best option!

Is coconut milk a suitable replacement for dairy milk?

Coconut milk is an excellent alternative to dairy when you’re looking for something creamier and sweeter. However, if reducing your saturated fat intake, keep in mind that coconut milk contains as much of it as whole cow’s milk.

 

Enjoy!
