Back to School Lunch box ideas + Veggie- Turkey Wrap recipe

Back to school is in full swing now. The kiddos are starting Monday, and once again I find myself scanning the fridge and pantry for quick and easy foods to pack for their lunch box. My goal for this year is to find some healthy alternatives that are easy to fix, inexpensive, and can survive being crammed into a backpack for hours. 
After brain storming, this is what I've come up with. I made this cute little food chart. Feel free to print it out, and hang on your fridge:) 

What are your favorite lunch/ snack ideas for your kids?

P.S. Don't forget to send your sweeties a little note that makes them smile!
