Roll-ups, pinwheels, wraps – whatever you choose to call them – are the perfect lunch or after school snack. They are so easy to whip up and you can fill them with whatever you have on hand. They are quick, nutritious, and you can customize them to suit your kids’ tastes. They are best eaten right away but would be fine for a lunch box too. (If you wait too long to eat them, they will get soggy.)
What you need to make roll-ups:
- Wheat or other tortillas
- Something spreadable like nut butter, cream cheese, a spread like hummus, mayo, etc. to hold it all together
- Veggies or fruits: banana slices (or a whole banana), thinly sliced apples, pears, strawberries, etc. lettuce, spinach, arugula, cucumbers, raisins
- Protein: cheese, tuna or chicken salad, sliced meat, tofu sticks, cream cheese
To make your roll-up, spread all the way to the edges your spreadable ingredient, sprinkle or layer your other ingredients, roll up tightly, and cut into 1-inch pieces with a sharp knife. Done!
