These pizza pinwheels are great finger food for lunchboxes and an alternative to sandwiches. If pizza is one of your childs favourite foods then they are sure to love these!

These are made with cheese, tomato and olives but you could try different fillings instead of olives like spinach or chopped peppers or tomatoes. Pesto or cooked meats would work well too.

They provide three food groups ( pastry as the carbohydrate, cheese for dairy and tomato paste and olives for vegetables).

Tomato paste or puree is a great source of iron, B vitamins and the antioxidant called lycopene. So tomato puree is particularly good for fussy eaters as you can use it in different ways like these pizza pinwheels but also in sauces.
