I love tortilla wraps - not only are they tasty but they are so versatile! From a wrap stuffed with whatever filling you fancy (my favourites are fajita chicken or houmous with feta cheese), to quesadillas and even homemade tortilla crisps, there seem to be endless lunch possibilities where wraps are concerned.
Small Child's current favourites are wrap spirals. These are so easy to make and look really pretty! To make, simply lay out your favourite filling on a tortilla wrap, roll up tightly and cut into bite size pieces. I like to skewer them on food picks or plastic skewers to hold them together, but you could also just pack them tightly into a lunch box to prevent them moving around too much in transit. I usually try to use wholemeal wraps to make to keep them healthier, but in the two lunches I'm sharing today I used white as I was using up leftovers.
For the first lunch, I skewered the wrap spirals on star skewers - Small Child really loved these! The wraps were filled with German sausage slices and Leerdammer cheese slices which made them really easy to roll up neatly. On the side I packed strips of raw red pepper, cucumber slices with a star cut from the middle using a mini bento cutter, a few blueberries and black grapes, which I topped with fun little people picks to decorate. This lunch was packed in our Munchkin bento box.
The second lunch was packed in our TUMTUM bento box. The wrap spirals were skewered on fun eye picks, and were filled with ham, lettuce and a little cream cheese. On the side I packed an apple, a baby cucumber (cut into two) and a mini babybel cheese, which I popped into a squirrel cup and decorated as his tail by cutting a spiral into the wax. I also packed some raisins and a few bear paws (fruit snacks). I decorated the rest of the lunch with cat and dog picks, alphabet picks spelling out 'YUM' and added a little leaf pick to the apple.
Small Child did well with these lunches, both days leaving only a couple of pieces of wrap to eat on his way home from school.
