Lunchtime is a great time to get in those veggies! Wraps make it easy to add spinach, matchstick carrots, sliced tomatoes and more to your child’s diet (and yours) and they are easy to assemble in the morning. These Ham & Spinach Wraps come together quickly for an easy lunch box idea. Pair these wraps with fruits, veggies, and other snacks for a complete and filling meal!
Nutrition Tip: Besides giving these wraps crunch, spinach contains carotenoids that help guard the eyes against damage from blue light (the kind from TVs and smartphones). This powerhouse green also has iron, calcium, and a bit of protein.
