Toasted Tomato & Basil Pesto Wrap

This is a really tasty toasted wrap that you and your little one will both enjoy for a quick nutritious lunch. 

Roasting the tomatoes, peppers and onions makes them really sweet, tender and delicious. Tomatoes and peppers are a good source of vitamin C which helps absorb iron and boost your baby’s immune system. 

Spreading some basil pesto and grated cheese on the wrap provides some calcium and protein whilst making it super tasty.

You can easily use other vegetables here too, such as courgette. I would recommend making a big batch of roasted vegetables which will save some time making the wraps during the week.
