Children often like to eat their own creations.

Here are some ideas for children to make their own pita or wrap. The idea is to have several different ingredients on hand. Children can mix and match the ingredients to make their very own pita or wrap.


Here are some ideas of foods that you may want to have the children choose from, but you don't need to stick to these. Be creative!

  • luncheon meat (e.g. turkey, ham, roast beef)
  • cubed chicken breast
  • peanut butter
  • tuna or salmon salad
  • chicken salad
  • hummus
  • beans
  • pepperoni
  • cooked tofu
  • sliced cheese (different varieties)
  • grated cheese (different varieties)
  • cooked rice
  • grated carrot
  • tomato slices
  • cucumber slices
