I is for Iceberg Lettuce Dino Wraps | Cooking The Alphabet | Cooking With Kids | Easy Toddler Lunch

Hi, I’m Amber, and I’m cooking the alphabet with my two toddlers, and today, we’re breaking out the chicken nuggets, and cooking Iceberg Lettuce Dino Nugget Wraps for I is for Iceberg Lettuce.

Chicken nuggets are always a win in our house, and this fun recipe combines a typically "safe" toddler food along with creative exposure to different veggies and textures.

What you need:

  1. Ingredients:

  • Dinosaur Chicken Nuggets

  • Iceberg Lettuce (not shredded)

  • Your choice of veggies/toppings such as: Carrots, Onion, Tomatoes, Cucumber, and Cheese

  • Your choice of sauce such as: Ranch, Honey Mustard, or Barbecue

  1. Tools: Kid-safe knife

Putting the nuggets on a baking tray!

Getting The Kids Cooking:

Set-up tasks your toddler can help with include:

  • Placing the nuggets on a baking sheet

  • Washing any produce

Then the fun part comes:

  • Chopping up cheese and veggies that can be cut using a kid-safe knife

  • Peeling the lettuce leaves off, carefully so they remain large enough to make a wrap from them

  • Once nuggets cool, taking the nuggets and chopped ingredients to make a cute dino scene

  • Rolling them up, and taking a bite!

I tried to show them how you can get creative with it, but they just wanted to go at it. They ate lots of nuggets and zero iceberg lettuce, but this one was really fun with not much clean-up!

Remember to take photos of your little chef chopping and assembling!

Now that the kids had fun, it's mama's turn!

Let's assemble the I page in our Baby Eats The Alphabet Recipe Book!

What you need:

Of course, we recommend purchasing a Baby Eats The Alphabet kit, which will have everything you need to create your recipe book keepsake (except the photos of your little ones), but honestly, the point is to create a beautiful book of your memories - which you can with: printed photos, paper (we recommend paper at least 8.5" x 8.5" so you can fit a photo plus the recipe!), double-sided tape, any fun embellishments you want like stickers, washi tape, or photo protectors, and something to hold your pages, like binder or scrapbook!

Write your recipe:

Use a small piece of paper to write down the recipe you used, and any memorable notes you want to record. I tried to get a bit creative with mine this week haha!

Pick your photos and lay everything out:

Before applying any tape, I recommend you lay out all of your elements to make sure everything fits and you like how it looks. Once you're happy with it, tape everything down, starting with the bottom layer first! And here's how mine turned out:

I would love to see what you decided to cook and create for I is for Iceberg Lettuce! Please tag me in your creations @BabyEatsTheAlphabet!
