Meatball Wraps

Meatball wraps are a really fun dinner for a family mealtime. Place all the constituent parts on the table and let your child assemble their own wrap!

Beef is one of the best sources of iron which is one of the critical nutrients that children need for healthy growth and development. When you pair it with vitamin C (supplied by the salad) it helps the iron get absorbed effectively. They also taste great served with tzatziki – a cooling yoghurt and cucumber dip. You can find the recipe here.

Leftover cooked meatballs can be stored, covered, on a high shelf in the fridge for up to 2 days. They are also suitable for home freezing. Once cooled, pop in the fridge for 30 minutes before moving to the freezer. Use within 3 months.
