Cheesy Turkey Veggie Wrap

As the new school year approaches, parents everywhere face the perennial challenge: crafting a lunchbox that’s as nutritious as it is appealing to their kids. Balancing health with flavors children love can seem like a tightrope act. But, fear not! Dive into our Cheesy Turkey Veggie Wrap recipe—a delightful fusion of savory turkey, creamy cheese, crisp veggies, and a hint of sweetness. It’s a dish that ensures your child not only enjoys their lunch but also receives the energy and nutrition they need to power through their school day. Let’s roll into the details!


Preparation Time: 10 minutes , No Cooking Required, Serves: 4


1. 4 whole wheat tortilla wraps
2. 1/2 pound sliced turkey breast
3. 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or any favorite cheese)
4. 1 avocado, sliced
5. 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
6. 1/2 cup cucumber, thinly sliced
7. 1/2 cup shredded lettuce
8. 1/4 cup Greek yogurt or light mayonnaise
9. 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
10. Salt and pepper to taste


1. Prepare the Spread: In a small bowl, mix Greek yogurt (or light mayonnaise) with honey, salt, and pepper. This creates a tangy, sweet spread that pairs well with the turkey and veggies.

2. Assemble the Wrap:
a. Lay out the tortilla wrap on a flat surface.
b. Spread a generous tablespoon of the Greek yogurt mixture in the center of the wrap.
c. Layer on the sliced turkey breast.
d. Sprinkle a good amount of shredded cheddar cheese on top.
e. Arrange the sliced avocado, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and shredded lettuce over the cheese.

3. Roll and Serve:
a. Fold in the sides of the tortilla and then roll it up from the bottom.
b. Cut in half diagonally for easier eating, especially for little hands.
c. Wrap each half in parchment paper or aluminum foil for a mess-free lunchbox addition.

4. Serving Suggestion: These wraps are best served with a side of fresh fruit like apple slices or berries, adding a sweet touch to complete the meal.

This recipe is not only delicious but also provides a balanced meal with proteins from turkey and cheese, good fats from avocado, whole grains from the tortilla, and a dose of veggies. The creamy spread adds a hint of sweetness, making it more palatable for kids. The wrap can be customized based on preferences or what’s available in the fridge!
