It’s time to send the kids back to school. And unfortunately this means that summer will be coming to an end, along with busy days spent traveling and lazy days lounging on the beach. You may no longer have to come up with creative ideas to keep your kids entertained all day, but but how about getting creative with your kid’s lunch? I know we’re all familiar with our favorite overused phrase “I’m bored!”  Keep the boredom away by trying this Turkey Cucumber Wrap as a tasty alternative to a traditional sandwich. Enjoy and keep cookin’!



Prep-to-Eat Time: Approx. 15 minutes


Tortillas (white, wheat, spinach, sundried tomato, etc.)

Sliced deli turkey

Cream cheese

Cucumber, thinly sliced

Alfalfa sprouts

Onion powder

Dill weed powder

Sprinkle with onion powder and dill weed powder.

Wrap and enjoy!


Serving Suggestions:

Pack this wrap up along with a healthy side. You can even make it a family project  and make your own trail mix! Here are some suggestions to get you started: peanuts, almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins, dried cranberries, granola, mini pretzels, banana chips, dried strawberries, cheese crackers, coconut flakes, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, etc!

Try to avoid sugary drinks, like sodas and fruit punch, and go for a low calorie alternative. Crystal Light offers single drink mixes, which your child can easily add to their bottled water and choose a different flavor each day!
