Picky Eater Tip
It isn't necessary to put all the ingredients in this wrap. Let your kids help you make it and have them choose one of the vegetables if they are particularly picky! Leave out the cranberry sauce if they don't like the color. Leave out the zucchini strip if that makes them upset. Let them have ownership over their wrap while giving them a choice. "Do you want yellow squash or green zucchini today?"
