Lunch Box: Turkey Roll-Ups

As easy to make as a sandwich, but definitely more fun to eat.




What's for Lunch

Turkey, fat-free cream cheese, and a variety of delicious herbs are wrapped in a tortilla for an easy, portable lunch.

Colorful Coleslaw with a Kick will fill the veggie void, and Caramel Crispy Treats II make for a tasty end to a filling meal.

Serve with low-fat milk or water.


Lunch Box Logic

  • Make it spill-proof: wrap tightly in plastic, and underneath the plastic, wrap the bottom inch of the roll-up with parchment paper so nothing falls out when kids are eating. They can remove it for the last few bites.
  • Make ahead: all three recipes can be made the night before.
  • Make it healthier: add more veggies (shredded carrots, fresh spinach, etc.), and either use whole wheat tortillas, or make your own (see recipes at right).
  • Make it different: kids not big fans of coleslaw? (The kind that’s not drenched in mayo, anyway.) No problem! Swap it out with a fruit salad for a slightly sweeter finish.
