Tips and variations

Warm tortillas slightly in the microwave or oven to make them easier to roll.

Once opened, store whole wheat tortillas in the refrigerator. If you will not be using the rest in the next day or two, store them in the freezer.

Wraps are great places to add fruits and vegetables to your child's diet. Substitute other vegetables as desired.
