Kids’ Lunchbox Ideas

Are you looking for new recipes to add to your little ones’ lunchbox menu? We’ve got you covered with these three super easy recipes that not only taste good, but stay fresh and delicious in your kiddo’s lunch box all day! They’re a great option for meal prepping lunches because they’re freezer-friendly and you can just pop them in the oven in the morning while getting ready for school or daycare.

You will need:

  • Large gluten-free (or regular) tortillas
  • Cream cheese
  • Cold-cut turkey
  • Roasted red peppers (come in a jar)
  • Fresh basil

How to make it:

  1. Lay the tortilla flat on a cutting board and spread a thick layer of cream cheese all the way to the edges. Chop and sprinkle basil across the tortilla.
  2. Add a layer of turkey slices to one side and a layer of roasted red peppers to the other side.
  3. Roll the tortilla tightly until the filling is tightly wrapped and the cream cheese holds the rollup together.
  4. Repeat with other tortillas and refrigerate until it is time to eat or pack your lunches. Then slice each tortilla into 8 equal pieces to form rolls and enjoy!
