Send the kids back to school with healthy lunches

Back to school signals the return of high calorie and high fat foods for lunch. With a little prep time, you can create delicious lunches (that are secretly good for them). I like the new Annabel Karmel Make It Easy Lunch Box. It's cute and easy to use. Here are some simple and healthy recipes for the youngsters from Karmel:

The Perfect Sandwich:

Sandwiches don’t need to be boring. Try granary bread, pita pockets, bagels or wraps. To prevent sandwiches getting squashed, store them in a small plastic container in your child’s lunchbox.

Chicken Wrap
Warm the tortilla in a dry frying pan. Mix the mayonnaise with 2 to 3 drops of lemon juice and 1/2 tbsp ketchup and spread over the tortilla. The scatter lettuce over half the tortilla and layer the chicken and tomatoes on top. Add salt and pepper and roll up to eat!

Ingredients:
Flour tortilla
1 oz cooked chicken
3 cherry tomatoes
Shredded lettuce
3tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp mayonnaise
Lemon

Tomato, Mozzarella and Pesto Wrap
Warm the tortilla in a dry frying pan. Spread over the pesto and mayonnaise mixture, then lay the mozzarella and tomato down the center of the tortilla. Season with salt and pepper and roll up to enjoy!

Ingredients:
Flour Tortilla
1 Large Tomato, skinned, seeded, and quartered
2oz sliced mozzarella
1 tbsp mayonnaise mixed with 1 tsp pesto
