Rainbows for Days! I don’t know any kid who wouldn’t love to open up their lunch box to these Rainbow Roll Up Sandwiches!
Hummus Veggie Wraps are one of my favorite lunch additions. They’re so easy to make, and you can use any veggies you and your kids love. Swap out the hummus for any flavor, too, like red bell pepper hummus or cheesy green hummus. This one has classic hummus, red bell peppers, orange carrots, yellow bell peppers, green spinach, and purple cabbage all rolled up in a tortilla wrap. You could also use sandwich bread flattened with a rolling pin for rainbow sushi sandwiches.
Leave some room at each end of the wrap that is covered in only hummus with no veggies so you have a glue to hold it all together, then roll it tightly and place seam-side down before cutting into bite-sized coins. Seeing all of the colors of the rainbow when it’s lunch time will be sure to get your kids excited to eat!
In the video above (go watch it!), we made super cute rainbow Banana Sandwich Cookies which are probably my kids newest obsession! Bananas are cut into coins, then sandwiched between two vanilla wafers (the ones in the video are from Whole Foods 365, but you absolutely can make your own! Have the kids help with that.) Spread some granola butter. Any nut or seed butter you love will work. You can also use whipped cream cheese here, then sprinkle with fancy dye-free sprinkles for some added rainbow style.
No matter what you add to the lunch box, go for bright and colorful and add tons of textures. For the photos here, I did Rainbow Fruit which included raspberries, peaches, green grapes and blackberries. Plus I added a Chocolate Chip Granola Bar, colorful peppers and a delicious fig. But feel free to add what is best for your kids’ tastes!
A Rainbow School Lunch will for sure get your kids eating tons of good for them vegetables and fruits!
