Ranch Veggie Wraps: A healthy serving of vegetables are rolled up with homemade ranch dressing for a fun lunch. It is like a Ranch Veggie Pizza in roll-up form!
Few things break my heart more than starving kids.
It is always shocking to me that in a country with so much food waste and excess, there are children literally in all of our back yards that are hungry.
That is why anytime I can partner with Feeding America® programs that benefit families and children, I am ALL for it!!
And when Produce for Kids gets involved, not only is Feeding America helped, but families are encouraged to eat healthier!! DOUBLE SCORE!!!
Produce for Kids is encouraging families nationwide to kick off the school year right by pledging to eat a healthier lunch! Now through September 22, for every for every online pledge at PowerYourLunchbox.com, produce companies supporting Power Your Lunchbox Pledge will make a collective $1 donation to Feeding America® children’s programs such as Kids Café, Backpack program and Child Hunger Corps. The Power Your Lunchbox Pledge has raised nearly $60,000 for Feeding America® programs that benefit families and children!
Produce for Kids partners supporting Power Your Lunchbox Pledge include Avocados from Mexico, Bee Sweet Citrus, Crispy Green®, Eat Smart, Earthbound Farm®, Eric Carle®, NatureFresh™, Pero Family Farms, Sun World®, Vegy Vida® and Zespri®.
And I am here to inspire you with healthy lunch box options.
Ranch Veggie Pizza Wraps
Crisp, fresh vegetables are wrapped up in a whole grain tortilla that has been spread with thick homemade ranch dip.
The ranch makes it a kid’s dream come true….the veggies make it a parent’s dream come true.
And these are completely customizable. I made one with cucumber slices, carrots, and peppers for my daugther and one with raw green beans, broccoli and carrots for my son–both healthy in their own right!
Made with veggies from several Power Your Lunchbox Pledge produce sponsors, these wraps are a great way to eat healthier AND help hungry kids right in your backyard.
