Wonton Cups – Making Meals Fun for Kids

I’ve done it!  I have discovered a great method to make food fun for kids (and their parents!).  And the best part? It’s versatile, and you can use the technique to serve all types of foods – from breakfasts to desserts!

I never thought I’d do a photo tutorial for you, but here goes.  Oh yes – one safety tip before we begin.  Please use round wonton wrappers – they don’t have sharp corners when they are cooked.

You can find wonton wrappers in the Asian market or in the produce section of many grocery stores

Here are some ideas you can use to fill up these babies:

  • scrambled eggs with cheese
  • yogurt and fruit
  • refried beans, tomatoes, olives, cheese and salsa
  • egg salad
  • adult appetizer stuff: artichoke hearts with lemon, parsley and parmesan, for example
  • whipped cream and sliced strawberries
  • teensy scoops of ice cream with a drizzle of hot fudge

What would you put inside these little food-delivery cups?

    Great idea! I once joked that I was going to teach a course called “101 Things to Do With a Wonton Skin” — and this would definitely be on the list.

    This is fabulous! We will have to try and see how it goes. My little one is at the only wants peanut butter and jelly stage. Maybe I will put that in it for starters and go from there.
