Toddler Tuesday: Peanut Butter, Banana, & Honey Burrito

Nate and burritos. A kid after my own heart. He loves them. This toddler Tuesday is brought to you by the beloved burrito my son loves. The peanut butter, banana, and honey burrito.

I also love this because it is easy, can be a breakfast, snack, and/or lunch. It travels fairly easy and not horribly messy, unless he is trying to deconstruct the burrito. That is rare, but it does happen.

Here's what you need:
1. Cutting board
2. Knife
3. Tortilla
4. Peanut butter- 1-2 Tablespoons depending on tortilla size
5. Honey
6. Banana- 1/2-1 banana depending on size

Step 1: Spread peanut butter.

Step 2: Slice banana and add to peanut butter.

Step 3: Drizzle honey(optional) but it does add some sweetness. ;)

Step 4: Roll up like a burrito and trim the top. I trim the top because it is easier for Nate. If you have an older kid or you are eating it yourself, you could go without trimming. Your choice. 

Step 5: Enjoy!! 

*If it is a large tortilla, one is plenty. If it is the soft taco size, you can serve with veggies or the leftover banana if you have any. 
*If you are traveling and your kid is eating in the car, wrap the bottom in foil or saran wrap in case anything leaks from the bottom. If you packing for a picnic, lunch, etc., wrap in saran wrap or foil and put in a baggie or tupperware container.
*Variations: There are SO many variations you can do with a burrito for a toddler. 
1. Add a different fruit other than banana. Blueberry, blackberry, strawberry, peaches, etc.
2. Use jelly
3. For a treat, use peanut butter and marshmallow fluff. Or nutella. Or chocolate chips.
4. Add nuts. Diced almonds, macadamia nuts, etc. Just dice them up well.
5. Go without the peanut butter and use a flavored cream cheese.  

Happy Tuesday!!
