A turkey pita can be a cost-effective and healthy packed lunch for your child. Buy whole meal pitas though as these are much less processed. Spread some low-fat mayonnaise inside and add some lettuce leaves or spinach leaves.
To make it a little bit different pop in some raisins too. Then slice the cooked turkey breast and layer it within the pita. For dessert your child can have a slice of banana cake and an apple.
If your child prefers their apple chopped you can keep it fresh by preserving it in lemon juice and wrapping it in a paper towel.
1 cup cooked turkey breast or chicken breast
1 whole wheat pita bread
Some lettuce leaves
1/4 cup finely diced celery
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 slice tomato
1 sliced apple
1 teaspoon raisin
1/4 tsp. celery seed
1/2 cup Fresh Cranberry Salsa
Stir together the mayo, celery seed. Chop the turkey, celery, and green onions; then stir the turkey salad mixture together and season to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper.
