My kids very rarely buy lunch at school. Honestly, I could probably count the number of times on one hand that they did so, and this is stretching it out among all five of them! So over the years, I've gotten to be kind of a pro at packing school lunches. I know what the kids like and what they don't. And, I know what they would love to see in their lunchboxes and what I won't let them have -- Yep, I'm that mom.
One thing I always try to do is vary what the kids take for lunch, although my middle child would take peanut butter and jelly every day if she could. The other kids are partial to ham and cheese, and my little guy loves mustard on just about anything. So the other day, instead of sandwiches, I decided to make wraps, or roll-ups, as they're sometimes called.
When I was doing our weekly grocery shopping at Walmart, I picked up everything I needed to make the kids' lunches, including premium deli meat and cheese from Castle Wood Reserve®.
I'm very picky about the kind of deli meat I buy, and I usually only buy the meat from behind the counter, sliced exactly the way we like it -- super thin. The nice thing about Castle Wood Reserve® meats and cheeses is that they're just as good as the kind behind the counter. They're gluten free, rBST free, trans-fat free, and there's no MSG. They taste good too!
Plus, you don't have to wait in line for service. Just grab a pack or two, and go.
Making the wraps is easy. You'll need a package of veggie tortillas, ham, provolone cheese, an apple and a combo of cream cheese and Dijon mustard for the spread.
If you or your kids don't like mustard, just use the cream cheese or mayo. I prefer using cream cheese when I make wraps because I think it helps hold everything together.
To assemble the wraps, you spread a thin layer of the Dijon cream cheese on the tortilla, and then you just add the ham, cheese and apple slices. Roll it all up, and you're good to go!
I have to say that these ham and cheese wraps are pretty decent and way better than an ordinary sandwich. The smokiness from the ham and cheese goes so well with the apples and creamy Dijon spread.
You get a nice crunch from the apple slices, as well.

My kids loved these easy ham apple and provolone cheese wraps. Not only are they perfect for school lunches, but they also make a nice after school snack.
My kids are famished when they come home from school, and one half of a wrap is enough to satisfy them until dinner.
Do you pack your kids' lunches? If so, what do you normally pack? I'm just slightly nosy, you know.
Have a wonderful day, friends!
