These delicious make ahead lunch wraps not only come together fast, they stay fresh in the fridge for up to 5 days. The flavors stay fresh all week long!
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!
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!
