I don’t know how it works in your family, but in mine, school mornings are not our best time. Try as we may to make them run smoothly, they are inevitably rushed and often stressful. Truth be told, those busy hectic moments are definitely NOT when our best parenting happens!

Ever feel like you just can't keep up? Our Living Well Starter Guide will show you how to start streamlining your life in just 3 simple steps. It's a game changer--get it free for a limited time!

But over the years both my husband and I have learned that the key to combating morning chaos–at least a little–is to prepare ahead as much as possible. Following a Sunday Prep  plan helps a lot, as does having a plan for quick & easy lunches that will come together fast.

These make-ahead lunch wraps can be easily stored in the fridge for up to 3-5 days & can be customized to your child’s taste. My girls both really love hummus so we have opted for that rather then mayo. It also provides some extra protein into their diet, and adds flavor without being too soggy. However, if your child doesn’t like hummus you could easily sub out the hummus for cream cheese instead!

We have found that these wraps stay fresh and and the veggies stay crisp and full of flavor all the way to day 5. If packing them in a lunch box be sure to include a freezer pack to keep everything cold until lunchtime!

Easy Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Assemble the ingredients for these quick and easy, make-ahead wraps: deli meat, hummus, spinach, carrots and wraps.

Here is what you need:

1 17oz. container hummus (can also use cream cheese)
1 9oz bag baby spinach
1 1/2  lbs. sliced turkey meat
1 6oz bag matchstick carrots
10 tortillas shells
parchment paper

Prep: Cut 10 pieces of parchment paper large enough for each tortilla shell. Place one tortilla shell on a piece of parchment paper (lay diagonal).

Spread the tortilla or wrap with a layer of hummus. I find it's easier to spread with a spoon.

Step 1: Spoon one-two large tablespoon of hummus on to tortilla shell and spread out.

Layer thin slices of turkey on top of the hummus for your make-ahead wrap.

Step 2: Add 2-3 slices of turkey meat.

Add a layer of spinach and carrots to the middle of the wrap.

Step 3: Then add several baby spinach leaves and carrots to tortilla shell.

Roll the wrap, using parchment paper to get a tight roll, while folding in the ends like a burrito.

Step 4: Wrap in sides of tortilla shell and then roll, and wrap up in parchment paper and place in freezer bag. ( Be sure to label bag first)

Add the wraps to a freezer bag and label along with the date and instructions.

Step 5: Keep in fridge for 3-5 days. Perfect for lunch boxes or picnics.

These make-ahead wraps are delicious for lunches all week long. Pair with a piece of fruit and enjoy!
