Wrap Lunchbox

I love this recipe because it allows the kids to have the freedom to create what they like but it’s also good for them. They’ll be so excited about creating a lunch with the ingredients that they’ll forget that there are even green beans in there. I also like to get creative with how I package the lunches. Tennis ball sleeves make the perfect lunchbox for a wrap, and sometimes I’ll even pack a lunch in a paint can, which serves two purposes: keeps the lunch from getting ruined and gives the kids an opportunity to decorate their lunchbox.

For sandwiches, choose whole wheat or whole grain breads and lean meats. For salads, choose a light dressing and plenty of fruits and vegetables.
