Kids love to eat with their hands, even when they get older. A wrap sandwich is easy to make and even easier to eat. You can cut them small so they are more like pinwheel sandwiches. Or, keep them in two pieces for less mess but either way you go these school sandwich ideas are sure to be a hit.
There are a variety of breads to use with wrap sandwiches. One of the most common is tortillas usually available in corn, flour or whole wheat just to name a few. Or if you would rather, you could use pita bread and make pockets that are easily filled with foods. Wraps are quick and easy meals that are nourishing and fun to eat.
Wrap sandwiches allow kids to be the masters of their own lunch meal. They can pick out their own fillings and put the sandwich together at school or it can already be prepared for them to save time (which is what I prefer.)
Wrap Sandwich Ideas
You can put together a ton of combinations so that your child doesn’t have to eat the same thing twice if they don’t want to. Here are a few ideas for you to present to your kids for sandwich combinations.
* Chicken breast and tomato
* Roasted turkey and lettuce
* BLT (bacon/lettuce/tomato)
* Mac ‘n cheese and bacon
* Beef strips and veggies
* Bologna and cheese
* Chicken salad
These are a few combinations that you kids might find good for their wrap sandwich. If you are adding sauces like mayonnaise or salad dressing to the sandwich, place it in a small container instead of on the wrap. This avoids the soggy bread syndrome at lunchtime.
When school begins, save yourself some money with these school sandwich ideas. Do you have other lunch combinations you use to make your child, or children, wraps for their lunches? We would love to hear them!
