School Lunches: Turkey Ranch Roll Ups

School lunches are back!! Well at least they are at my house. If your kids aren’t back in school yet you may live vicariously through me as I find new and fun ways to make my kid eat lunch at school. My kids love school. They love being with their friends, learning new things and runing around. Mostly they love that they are on their own, without mama. So having a lunch packed  by me, isn’t as exciting as eating something someone else’s mama packed. I try very hard to make the lunches a little more exciting in order to get my kids to at least attempt to eat their food. So far it has worked. That is why I keep looking for the next great school lunch.

Finding lunch ideas:

This month I pinned several different ideas for my kids. This was one of my favorites. My family loves all things ranch flavored. So I know Turkey Ranch Roll ups will be a hit. This fabulous little lunch idea comes from Kimber at The Pinning Mama. Kimber has some fantastic ideas for keeping the boring school lunch lots of fun. This fun recipe will make your kids excited to eat lunch.




School lunches may not be a kids favorite part of the day though I am very excited to get back to it!
