Getting your kids to enjoy different types of foods can be a challenge. Heck, even getting some adults to be adventurous can be hard! This is why I teamed up with GimMe Organic to create a fun and healthy snack for all those kiddos (and adults) that hesitate in trying new foods. These make your own easy sushi rolls use the awesome seaweed snacks to create roll ups you can fill with whatever stuff you love. Kids that make their own snacks, eat their own snacks!
As a mom of three little ones, I have learned that control is something kids love. Much to our dismay, we often need to give up that control to them in order to keep the peace. One area that this really comes into play is food. I am super lucky in that most of my children are easy going adventurous eaters. But then there’s that one. We all have them, and if you don’t well lucky you, but for those of us that do this little idea may just be your new best friend! Letting them take control of their meals is life changing. We do build your own pizzas, fill your own tacos, and now build your own easy sushi rolls!
Making real sushi can be challenging, but I found that using the smaller sized seaweed snack pieces make the perfect bite size rolls! So when GimMe Organic got in touch about working together on a post using their products, I jumped at the opportunity. It really is super simple and easy if you follow my directions.
Step 1: Place seaweed snacks between moistened paper towels for 5-7 minutes in order to soften them.
Step 2: Fill with ingredients of choice, making sure not to overdo it.
Step 3: Wrap seaweed snack around filling and roll, the ends should stick together because the seaweed snack is moist and softened.
My kids loved putting these easy sushi rolls together! They needed a little help to roll them right, but they were able to take control of what they wanted inside and got excited to eat them after. I put out little bowls of everything they could choose from, and away they went!
We even made a few of the roll ups crunchy on the outside! How you ask? Simple, once we finished rolling all of them, we took a few, coated the outside with a layer of the sauce we used for a filling ingredient, then rolled it in a bowl of crushed up seaweed chips! It was SO good and we loved the added texture. GimMe seaweed chips have an amazing crunch and are made with healthy ingredients so they are a perfect choice!
Time to get yourself to the store and grab some GimMe seaweed snacks and chips! Your kids will love making these and you will love them stepping out of their comfort zone. It’s back to school for us and these are definitely going in our lunches. Leave me a comment and let me know your favorite combo!
