nsm Food: it’s a wrap! Healthy lunchbox ideas with Hass Avocados

How lovely does this lunchbox look? …

… and, I’ve got to say, nothing LIKE the sort of thing this mama whips up during the school run morning spin.

But the guys at Hass Avocados from Peru – the most popular sort, thanks to their yummily creamy, nutty quality – insist that making a wrap like this is super-easy to pull off (even in a blur).

Here’s how! 

Kids Lunchbox Wraps (serves 2)

Ingredients

1⁄2 Very ripe Peruvian Hass avocado, halved, peeled, and stone removed

Squeeze lime juice

3 x white or wholemeal wraps

Cheese & Tomato Wrap

Handful grated cheddar cheese

2 x Cherry tomatoes, sliced

Egg Mayonnaise Wrap

1 x Boiled egg, shell cracked & removed, cut into chunks 1 tbsp Half-fat mayonnaise

Tuna Mayonnaise Wrap

1⁄2 185g Tinned tuna chunks in brine, drained

1 tbsp Half-fat mayonnaise

Cheese and Tomato Wrap

Arrange the grated cheese and sliced cherry tomatoes down the centre of 2 wrap halves, leaving a space at the bottom.

Fold over the circular base of the wrap, then roll up from one side to the other, forming a pocket.

Egg Mayonnaise Wrap

Follow steps 1 & 2 above, then in a bowl, mash the boiled egg into small chunks, mix with the mayonnaise and season with a little salt and pepper.

Spoon the egg mayonnaise down the centre of 2 wrap halves, leaving a space at the bottom.

Fold over the circular base of the wrap, then roll up from one side to the other, forming a pocket.

Tuna Mayonnaise Wrap

Follow steps 1 & 2 above, then in a bowl, combine the tuna chunks and the mayonnaise, mix well and season with a little salt and pepper.

Spoon the egg mayonnaise down the centre of 2 wrap halves, leaving a space at the bottom.

Fold over the circular base of the wrap, then roll up from one side to the other, forming a pocket.

- YUM!
