Fruity Pita Quesadillas

Give quesadillas a fruity spin by adding strawberries, SunGold kiwi and grapes! Let kids assemble their own for the fun lunchbox idea.

Strawberries and SunGold kiwi are the perfect sweet combo and pack a punch of Vitamin C to keep colds at bay. Ever tried a Zespri™ SunGold Kiwi? It’s sweeter than the green kiwi you’re used to, unlike anything you’ve tasted!

Nutrition Tip: A serving of kiwi has twice the vitamin C of an orange and as much potassium as a banana in under 100 calories.

If your school is a nut-free zone, swap the peanut butter for soybutter or sunbutter instead! We rounded out this lunchbox with some diced grilled chicken from dinner the night before and some fresh veggies for dipping.
