I have been looking all over for new ideas for my kids lunches this fall, then I found these super-easy, simple & healthy twist on a turkey sandwich from

•    1 large whole-wheat wrap (11 to 12 inches), or 2 smaller wraps (8 inches), or a 12-by 9-inch rectangular lavosh
•    1 tablespoon mayonnaise
•    1 lightly packed handful rinsed baby spinach leaves
•    1 tablespoon dried cranberries
•    2 medium carrots, ends cut off, peeled and coarsely shredded
•    2 slices Swiss cheese, such as Jarlsburg (2 ounces)
•    2 thin slices store-bought roasted turkey breast (2 ounces)

If necessary, warm the wrap in a 350°F oven for 2 minutes to soften before filling.
Lay the wrap on a work surface and spread the mayonnaise all over. Sprinkle the spinach leaves, cranberries, and carrots evenly on top. Arrange the Swiss cheese and turkey in even layers over the vegetable layer. Fold in the side edges and then roll up snugly from the bottom.
Cut crosswise into 4 even pieces and wrap tightly in plastic.
