Check how to make this tasty wrap with simple staples and pack it in the lunchbox to stay fresh and not fall apart!
Ham Wrap with Avocado
This Ham and Avocado Wrap is a balanced meal that tastes amazing and provides protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals inside a tortilla! Mom´s favorite part: you can assemble it in 5 minutes with basic ingredients you already have!
The avocado keeps the wrap moist and takes the place of mayonnaise for the ultimate creamy and wholesome school lunch. No avocado on hand? Swap it for guacamole!
Greens are another great addition to increase nutrition and make the wrap more filling for hungry teen bellies. I use spinach, but you can include green lettuce or field greens. Add your favorite deli ham and this terrific lunch is ready to pack!

Tips for packing wraps for lunch like a pro
Pack a perfect wrap for school lunch every time by following these simple tips:
Slow down avocado from turning brown
While the avocado will turn brown, you can also wait to slice this wrap in half until you’re ready to eat it or keep it wrapped like a burrito.
Feel free to swap
You can customize this ham wrap to what you have on hand: swap avocado for guacamole, and spinach for other greens. Use your favorite tortilla and any deli ham you like!
