All kids should eat spinach. Period. End of story. Spinach has so much goodness, and it’s especially tasty in little pizza roll-ups. I always get spinach at the farmers market: it’s more work than triple-washed, pre-packed bags of spinach (like, you have to triple wash it yourself), but it’s infinitely more delicious.

Fun Snack Food: Spinach Pizza Roll-ups
  • whole wheat tortillas
  • marinara sauce
  • mozzarella, fresh or shredded
  • baby spinach

Preheat oven to 400˚F. Spread some marinara sauce on a tortilla, sprinkle with cheese and top with a nice pile of spinach leaves. Roll it up as tightly as possible and put on a baking sheet, seam side down. I always line my cheap-o restaurant supply baking sheets with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy clean up. Cook for about 15–20 minutes (or until the cheese had melted and the tortilla starts to brown), turning once. Let cool before slicing into bite-size pieces. Serve to kids whenever they are ravenous.
