Lisa’s Pita Pockets

Pita Pockets Recipe

Falafels and hummus, which are both made with legumes, are great sources of dietary fibre, B vitamins and iron, which kids need for healthy bowel movements, energy production and muscle development. Avocadoes provide beta-carotene, which is an important nutrient that helps support the health of your children’s eyes and vision. Wholegrain breads supply dietary fibre and slow-release complex carbohydrates give kids sustained energy.
