I get so excited when I think about all the different types of food and snacks I’ll make to put in my kids’ school lunch-box/ bag even though I have got a long way to go before then.

I find that there are so many different ideas you can come up with when it comes to making food for young children.

I personally think it is important to make it look as colorful and fun to eat as possible.

A lot of people probably find they don’t have enough time to make lunch for their kids, which is understandable, although, if you make something that both the kids and adults can have, not only does it save you time, it also saves you money!

I came up with this super easy recipe for Chicken Wraps!  These are great for the whole family and especially great for a healthy lunch box.





Hints & Tips

If you are trying to make this in the morning, It’d help if you season the chicken over night so it saves you more time!

For young kids cut each wrap into two while adults can eat a whole

I am looking forward to reading and seeing pictures of how this turned out for you. So go ahead make a colourful chicken wrap.
