Ozery's Pita Break And Healthy Meal Ideas for Kids

Over the past few weeks, I have made an unsettling discovery that the reason my pants feel tighter has nothing to do with my clothes shrinking in the wash but rather an expanding waistline. I'd like to blame it on my husband who took the kids out for Halloween and came home with twice as much candy than last year. Surely I could not allow my children to consume all of it so, as a diligent mom, I took it upon myself to eat my fair share. And then some. But now, I feel awful. It's time to get back on track and eat better so that I can model to my children the importance of giving our bodies the best possible fuel. Such is the foundation upon which is based a family-owned bakery known as Ozery's Pita Break.


Ozery’s Pita Break is a Toronto-based bakery and sandwich shop that opened in 1996 and has since expanded to better serve its growing clientele across North America. Each day, they bake all-natural, preservative-free flatbreads, pitas, Lavash crackers and most recently Crispy Pitas. I have to give my husband credit for introducing me to the brilliant concept of the Pita Break OneBun. This revolutionary product has "all the best parts of a traditional hamburger bun combined with the benefits of healthy, whole grains." Yes, it is lower in fat and contains no preservatives but the best part is that it's thin and super tasty. And they're even better when toasted!

The OneBun is great for sandwiches, especially for the kids' lunches. You see, when I use sliced bread, I often find that the kids will eat the middle and leave behind the crust. With the OneBun, there really isn't a crust and so the kids will eat the entire sandwich. The kids are also less intimidated by the size since the thin bun makes for a smaller sandwich. I personally prefer the OneBun because I like to savour what's in my sandwich such as tuna, turkey or ham with cheese and tomato.

The Pita Break Multi-Grain Hot Dog OneBun is also a favourite in our home. It doesn't fall apart like some of the traditional buns and it's perfect as a soft taco. Cause what kid doesn't love making their own taco in a shell that won't break? In addition to the Pita Break breakfast pitas, our family was able to try out their multi-grain Just Minis. They make fantastic sliders and the kids love them. Both my kids and my husband enjoyed the Lavash crackers as well but I passed on those. I prefer to warm up some pita to enjoy with humus or other dip.
