When my kids come home from school, they are starving! They come in like tornados, drop their backpacks, wash their hands and head for the kitchen. If I’m not prepared, they start grabbing anything unhealthy they can find – fruit snacks, ice cream and chips. But, if I’m on the ball and have a heathy snack ready, they are thrilled and eat it up!
Kids need healthy snacks to hold them to dinner and so they can play with friends, do homework or complete in sports. To help kids make healthy choices, give them good stuff they will want to eat like this Flatout Turkey and Cheese “Sushi” Rolls.
My kids love sushi and we go out for California and Philadelphia rolls every chance we get. But, we don’t normally make it at home. So, when Flatout asked me to create a fun and delicious after snack using Flatout, I knew this would be perfect! Complete with dipping sauce of mayonnaise and honey dijon mustard, the kids really love having “sushi” after school!
Flatout bread is a blank canvas; it’s a perfect partner to help parents help their kids make healthier after-school choices. With Flatout, parents can show kids how to arrange the ingredients to make mini masterpieces. Anytime you can get the kids involved in making decision and preparing their own food, they are going to love eating it just as much as making it! Why not try this fun after school snack the next time you are looking for a fun afterschool snack? Put out your kid’s favorite sandwich items – turkey, ham, cheese, lettuce and even peanut butter and jelly are great choices! Let them choose what they want to eat and roll it up with a Flatout for a fun snack!

Here’s the How – To on making your own Turkey and Cheese Sushi Rolls!
Take your favorite Flatout- I used the Italian Flatout here. Spread a little mayo on the Flatout, top with cheese, turkey and lettuce. Not too much or it won’t roll up nice and tight. Starting at one end, roll tightly and secure with toothpicks. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the fridge until the kids come home from school. Take it out and slice into bite size pieces and place on a tray. Serve with toothpicks and your favorite dipping sauce and you’re done! That’s it! Your kid will love it and you’ll love that they had a healthy and fun snack to hold them over until dinner time!
