Healthy and easy school lunch wraps!

It happens to us all when packing school and office lunches day after day. Maybe it happens the night before when you start thinking about having to pack food to go.

You reach a point where you look at that loaf of bread and hear in your head “yup, another sandwich.” Or maybe, they come home squished and half-eaten.

Tortillas to the rescue! Making a wrap is the easiest, not to mention, yummy way to cure that burnout. It’s also a great way to pack a variety of protein, veggies, and healthy fats into one, delicious, hand-held lunch.

Plus, who doesn’t love all those yummy lunch ingredients rolled in a tortilla? Exactly. Hand-held lunches are always a winner.

Can you make a wrap grain-free?
Yes! If you need a grain free wrap, check out these coconut flour wraps. I love using them as a gluten-free option and they hold up very well in a lunchbox.

If you need a gluten-free wrap option, many stores sell gluten-free tortillas. So essentially, you can make any of these ideas gluten-free.

So back to what you came here for. These 5 healthy wraps for school lunch that are also grown-up friendly. That means, that you can eat these too! Better yet, they are the perfect wrap for teenagers because they aren’t “kiddy” they’re just delicious.

Peanut Butter Apple Wraps
Doesn’t get any more simple than this! I love making these since peanut butter and apples are always in my fridge and pantry, plus it’s one of my favorite combos! If you or your children can’t have peanut butter replace it with any of your favorite no-nut butter spreads like sunflower seed butter.

Hard Boiled Egg Wraps
These healthy wraps are an inexpensive way to get a good source of protein and healthy fats, from the egg! This wrap is made with chopped eggs, turkey, lettuce, and tomato! So simple and of course, you could omit the turkey since these are hearty enough with the hard-boiled eggs.

I first launched MOMables to help parents make healthier versions of some of their favorite school lunches and meals, and everyone asked me for a “healthy pizza.”

In our weekly meal plans, we include tons of variety that help thousands switch up the classic pb&j sandwich, ham and cheese and even steer away from store bought boxed lunches.

What I love about this pizza lunch is that it engages kids to play with their veggies, to use them as pizza crusts and toppings, and to have fun with their foods! The lunchbox is an EasyLunchboxes container. 

The toppings are unlimited and the pizza combinations are endless. The bonus is that making this lunch is really easy.

The reason I chose to use hummus for this lunch is because the last time I tried to send a build-your-own pizza lunch to school tomato sauce went everywhere. That was the last time, clearly.

I also just found this “pizza” hummus by Sabra at the grocery store and it really does taste like pizza. Don’t worry, they don’t have meat or tomato sauce in it; it’s the seasonings and fine pieces of red pepper that give it it’s pizza-like flavor.

If you think this lunch idea is fun, wait until you see the ones in our sample meal plans.
