  • Peppers are a great source of vitamins, phytonutrients and minerals.
  • One serving (1/2 wrap) amazingly provides over three times the recommended daily amount of Vitamin C for a 7 – 10-year-old.
  • Vitamin C has many functions, but it is essential for children for healthy skin, blood vessels, bones and cartilage, and helps wounds heal.



  • Peppers can be roasted and blended ahead of time. Try roasting peppers while the oven is on for another reason (e.g. baking potatoes, roasting other vegetables).
  • Short of time? Use ready-roasted peppers.
  • To make the sauce go further, and soften the flavour, add a little soft cheese/Marscapone/natural yoghurt or similar.
  • Feeling adventurous? Try roasting yellow or green peppers for variation.
  • Need to avoid sesame seeds or want to increase fibre? Use wholemeal wraps.
