Cute and colorful school lunch vegetable wraps

Posted on: February 5, 2013

I know it’s still snowing & cruddy almost everywhere else but here.  We’ve had some cooler weather for Florida, but we are definitely spoiled with the sunshine and year round produce.  We picked some local strawberries last week so there are still some left that I hadn’t frozen for smoothies yet.

Whenever I’m at a loss for things to make, I often turn to wraps.  You can use dinner leftovers, lunch leftovers and pack it into a tortilla for a new meal.  I used Rudi’s Organic Spelt Tortillas to make vegetable wraps.  I used a homemade sunflower seed spread on the base, julienned carrots and cucumbers and pile on a small heap of steamed edamame and wrapped.  I like to refrigerate them for a few minutes before attempting to cut them.  The picks (bunnies in this lunchbox) help keep them together for little fingers.  In with the mini wraps for Miss A are sugar snap peas and pineapple.  At the top are organic raspberries, blueberries and strawberries in her Easy Lunchboxes container.

My favorite bento store, Bento USA by All Things For Sale carries some fabulous and very affordable ways to change up lunchtime.  This new building block snack box is a favorite of ours for quick snacks.  This one has pineapple, strawberries and sugar snap peas in it for a healthy, quick preschool snack.

My son is totally into Legos (duplos) so thanks for putting together a lunch with a lego style box! I’m totally planning on getting it! How spill-proof/water-tight is it? Thanks!

I have the 2 tiered bento box which is great too. The blue one in this post has a tight lid, but I would NOT put liquids in it. It’s definitely safe for fruits and sandwiches though. Very few bento boxes are leak proof. These are wonderful because they are SO affordable. Look up their tiny sauce containers too. Adorable in all different colors for small sauces.

Lunches look great! Love the flirty one too, I’m sure he enjoyed it 🙂

Thanks 🙂 He did like it!
