If you are ever in need of an activity that will keep the little darlings occupied for a while as well as feeding them at the same time, this could be it! Super easy and quick, (apart from the rolling) so let the kidlets do that bit!
You will be munching on goodness with them or no time unless you want it to take a while. These make a perfect little mid morning snack, are easy to portion control, can be frozen and you will have an instant lunchbox cooler by stashing them in the lunch bag straight from the freezer.
