Our Top 5 Lunch Box Friendly Wraps
Get out of that sandwich rut and mix up your kid’s lunch boxes by including some yummy wraps. Wraps are ideal for bento style lunch boxes and with so many possible combos, even the fussiest of eaters enjoy wraps for lunch. You can also try cutting your wraps into pinwheels and threading onto our Stix to make lunch wraps even more appealing for your fussiest eaters.
When making wraps for kids it’s worth keeping in mind that most kids like simple food. The more ingredients in the wrap the less likely they may be willing to try. Combinations that sound strange to us might be the perfect combo for your children, so be willing to experiment with different flavour and texture combos until you find what works!
Soggy wraps are never fun - so no over-filling, and it’s also a good idea to put your lettuce, cheese or meats down first and top with any “wet” ingredients. A layer of mayo works wonders too. For ideal lunch box storage use our Wrap Bands to keep your wraps together, as we all know kids hate messy food!
