Baby Bites Feta Salad Wraps

Bridget is sixteen months old now and has been good with a spoon for a while and has been getting to grips with a little fork for a couple of months now too - but the food she loves the most are finger foods which I guess are a lot more fun for her. She is well and truly past the weaning stage now but still throws bit of food on the floor some days (any tips on eradicating that, most welcome).

These no-cook wraps use wholemeal tortillas, feta for a good hit of protein, the salad Bridget enjoys and I add, for an additional flavour layer, some fresh coriander as this goes beautifully with feta - what's even better is you can make these ahead and wrap up in the fridge in some cling film so they make a great lunchbox meal for both baby and parents. You could of course add some lettuce leaves, rocket or watercress for some additional goodness - experiment with all your favourite salad items.

I prefer to dish up ready-wrapped but you may prefer the deconstructed approach for little ones to avoid mess.

Baby Bites Feta Salad Wraps

Here's how:

(Serves x2 parents and 1x baby or toddler)
  • x3 wholemeal wraps or tortillas
  • 100g feta
  • Handful fresh coriander
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 6-7 cherry tomatoes
  • Half a cucumber
  • Handful radishes
  • 2-3 spring onions
  • Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch black pepper
Firstly slice the peppers and the cucumber into equally sized batons.

Slice the tomatoes and radishes and finely chop the spring onions. Dice the feta into small cubes. if you wish now put all of the salad ingredients onto a plate or platter with the fresh coriander and simply serve with the wholemeal wraps on the plate and allow each person to plate and roll their own wrap.

Otherwise place each wholemeal wrap onto a plate and layer up the salad a few torn coriander leaves (to taste really) and then the feta. Now drizzle with a tiny amount of good quality extra virgin olive oil before rolling up into a wrap. Enjoy.
