I wanted to be able to offer my kids a healthy lunch that I knew I could make without spending hours in the kitchen and came across this vegan wrap recipe. At first, I thought my son would not like it because it is not turkey and cheese flavored, nor is there any ketchup inside, but he actually loves this easy taco salad wrap and it never gets smooshed flat like a sandwich does. When you highly want to add a little variety to true PBJ and the turkey and cheese on bread options, learn how to make sandwich wraps with veggies. You may be surprised when the kids come back asking for more of them. Even my picky eaters will come home with an empty lunch box on the days I send them to school with these.

My kids adore pretty much all strawberry recipes and will eat a container or fresh berries before I even get them in the fridge or whatever I was planning to make with them. I’ve started buying the extra large container of strawberries at Costco now that I’ve discovered this amazing homemade fruit roll ups recipe. My kids love to help me make these strawberry fruit rolls and they pack better than just about anything I’ve ever sent them off with.

4. Apple Slice Snacks

For healthy, easy snack recipes even picky kids will eat, look no further than these apple slices topped with goodies. Spread your apples with peanut butter and nuts, plus chocolate chips for an extra treat. Nutritious and delicious, kids can help make these, too. Store them in the fridge and we keep ours overnight so there is nothing to prep in the morning.

5. Ham and Cheese Pockets

I love being able to make these ham and cheese pocket sandwiches the night before school so I can just pop them in the microwave and wrap them in foil before my kids head off to class. The recipe may look super yummy, but it is also super easy. None of my kids have met a ham and cheese they don’t like, but this one may be win BFF this year.
