I know it is still July & I am in no way trying to rush summer break here, but school starts back for my son in less than a month, folks. In about 3 weeks to be exact. And my youngest? She is starting Pre-K a week after him. Did I mention that this coming school year will also be my son's senior year of high school? Yep. I am fully prepared to be a hot mess for most of this upcoming school year. I still can't quite wrap my head around the fact that my youngest will be starting school and my oldest will be embarking on his last year of school. Hold me for the next 10 months, k?

While I may not be emotionally and mentally prepared just yet to tackle the 2016/2017 school year, I am already thinking ahead to those school lunches I will be packing up for the kiddos in less than a month. The challenge is to come up with delicious & easy lunch ideas that are not only fun & kid approved, but that also get the mom seal of approval for being healthy & filling. These quick & tasty Lunchbox Pizza Rollups are sure to receive a double thumbs up from both the kiddos and the parents... :)

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: None
Ingredients (1 rollup- serves 1)
  • 1 Park Skim Mozzarella Cheese Stick
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of your favorite pizza sauce
  • 6-7 slices of turkey pepperoni
  • 1 (10") whole wheat soft tortilla
Instructions
Lay the tortilla flat. Spread pizza sauce over the tortilla starting with the center and then spread out to about 1 inch from the edge of the tortilla on all sides. Top the sauce covered tortilla evenly with the pepperoni slices. Place the unwrapped mozzarella stick at one end of the tortilla, and then roll.

My son can easily whip up two of these to toss into his lunch, and they keep him fueled up and focused for his afternoon classes straight through cross country practice thanks to the 8+ grams of high quality protein in each of these tasty rollups. And bonus? Both of my kiddos are meeting at least 1 of their 3 daily recommended servings of low fat or fat free dairy foods when I drop one of these into their lunchboxes.
