Pick ‘n’ Mix Frying Pan Pizza

After a busy day out and about with a busy toddler this is a great easy meal you can have in front of them in under 15 minutes. As with any pizza, you have the freedom to choose toppings you know they and maybe one or two new or less familiar foods. Presenting new foods in a familiar way is a great way in reducing anxiety in your child encouraging them to be more likely to want to interact, try and enjoy it.

Nutrition Note: Pizzas are a fun way to introduce kids to cooking and to encourage them to try new or previously refused foods.
