Introducing the new range of Mission Kids wraps from Mission Deli*
Mission Deli has teamed up with Disney Kitchen to introduce a brand new range of mini wraps to the market. These new wraps are kid-sized and come in four different flavours. You can choose from plain, carrot, strawberry and tomato ketchup. The Sneaky Veg kids loved them all but if they had to pick one they'd all go for tomato ketchup flavour! I mean, what kid wouldn't, right?
The packaging features popular Disney characters and you'll find all the nutritional information you need to help you know that these are a healthy choice. The mini wraps are made with whole grains, contain no artificial colours or flavours, are low sugar and are all under 100 calories.
You can pick up a packet of mini wraps for £1.29 (six wraps) at Tesco, Morrisons or Asda.
Launching the Mission Deli mini wraps at Kidzania
We were invited to an event at Kidzania in London during half term to celebrate the launch of the mini wraps. The kids were treated to a hilarious magic show by Magic Mikey. Little S volunteered to go up on stage and won a balloon motorbike. He immediately became very attached to it and thankfully we managed to get it home on the Tube intact!
After the magic show the children donned chef's hats and aprons and were invited up on stage to make their own wraps. The Mission Deli chef had come up with some lovely ideas for them to make, including owl wraps, savoury lollipops and fruit-filled cones.
True to character Miss R,7, and Little S,4, wanted to make every type of wrap and were the last kids up on stage!
When we got home I used our wraps to make these fun tortilla pinwheels for the kids' lunch boxes.
What is a tortilla pinwheel?
A tortilla pinwheel is a sandwich made from a tortilla or wrap. The wrap is rolled up tightly, stuck together with a little hummus or cream cheese and then sliced into rounds with a sharp knife. Because it's tightly rolled the wrap forms a pinwheel shape, hence the name.
What else could you put in a tortilla pinwheel?
I love this vegan avocado, hummus and lettuce combination but there are many other ideas for filling a tortilla pinwheel. Here are a few veggie filling suggestions:
- cream cheese
- sliced veggie meats
- peanut butter and sliced banana
- crunchy slaw
- peanut butter and chia jam
What have I missed? What would you put in your tortilla pinwheel?
Or why not get your kids to make their own? See more easy recipes for kids to cook.

How to make tortilla pinwheels
The key to a successful tortilla pinwheel is to make sure you wrap it up really tightly. Don't be tempted to overfill it or this will be difficult.
Tortilla pinwheels with avocado, hummus and lettuce
- 1 Mission Deli mini wrap
- ¼ ripe avocado chopped
- 1-2 tbsp hummus
- small handful shredded crunchy lettuce
- Spread the hummus over the wrap, reserving a little bit for the end to help you stick your wrap.
- Add the chopped avocado. If preferred you can mash it now. Add the lettuce.
- Starting at one end roll the wrap up tightly, pushing the fillings back in if they fall out. Use the reserved hummus to help stick your wrap down.
- Using a sharp knife cut the wrap into 2-3 cm slices.
- Eat immediately or store in an airtight container or lunch box for a few hours.
