My kids started school a few weeks ago, and the BACK TO SCHOOL grind is real. I don’t know what it is about packing school lunches that I can’t stand, but I at least feel grateful that my kids don’t ask to buy the school corn dogs too often (*shudder*)

I’m always looking for some easy, quick ideas for their lunch boxes. I have three kids that go to school all day now, so let’s just say that packing school lunches gets a little hairy around here. We’re all in a rush, but I also want them to eat good too.

And, believe it or not, my twelve year old is the pickiest out of all my kids!

She doesn’t like sandwiches (which makes me question that she is my child) but thankfully loves chocolate (which confirms she is my child).

So, I’m always trying to brainstorm ideas with her. Especially ones that don’t include a half a leftover cookie and some tortilla chips. I need to know that she’s getting good nutrition because she’s such a little thing, too.

So, one thing we serve often around here is egg salad. A few years ago, I was surprised to discover that all three of my kids love egg salad, and it’s a great option for lunches too because it has lots of protein to keep their bellies full when they are learning all day at school.

So, when I heard about La Tortilla Factory’s wraps, I was dying to try them with our favorite egg salad recipe. The LA TORTILLA FACTORY NON-GMO WRAPS are actually a really great choice for your kids, too. Here’s why they make a great healthy alternative to bread, or other wraps:

La Tortilla Factory created the first commercially available Low-Carb tortilla (WAY before Atkins & Keto) AND the first commercially available USDA Organic & Non-GMO tortilla.

The wraps also have fewer ingredients and the taste is fantastic. They are also
Non-GMO, contain no bad fats, no artificial colors or flavors, no refined sugars and to be honest – they just taste like a wrap should taste.

I wanted to pair the egg salad with a spinach wrap, too because it’s just a great way to get some veggies into the tummies of those PICKY EATERS. I’m lucky because my middle child LOVES raw spinach, but with the other two kids, I have to be sneakier.

So, that’s why the power green wrap was a perfect choice to pair with my egg salad that they already love. And, you can pair the wrap with healthy choices like carrot sticks and strawberries.

And, you know what? The kids ATE the lunches. (Cue the hallelujah chorus)

So, check out the recipe below using the healthy Non-GMO La Tortilla factory wraps. I think subbing the mayo in this recipe for some greek yogurt would just take it to the next level of healthy. And, that’s what moms want right? Next level AWESOME MOM skills.
