The following is a sponsored post on behalf of the Produce for Kids Power Your Lunchbox Promise. Opinions expressed are that of my own and my kiddos are excited that I made this Peanut Butter and Dried Fruit Pinwheels Recipe.
I must admit, that after the 2nd week of school my creative lunch ideas usually start to waiver. This is partly due to lack of planning as well as needing to make another grocery run for supplies.

Peanut Butter and Dried Fruit Pinwheels Recipe
Large Flour Tortilla
2 tbsps of Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Single Serve Box of Sun-Maid Raisins
1 Pack of Crispy Fruit Dried Fruit (or 1/2 Pack of Apple and 1/2 Pack of Banana)
First spread the peanut butter on the tortilla doing this at least all the way to the end on one side. Then distribute the raisins across the top.
Next, break apart the dried fruit into smaller pieces. FYI, I used half a package of apple and half a package of banana, and placed the leftovers in a zip bag.
To finish, roll into a tight wrap shape and slice with a sharp knife into 7-8 pieces. Tip: The end pieces may need a little extra peanut butter to stick together or Mom or Dad can just eat them.
In regards to servings, my 12 year old could eat an entire sliced roll, but my 9 year old and 6 year old were good with 3 to 4 slices each.
Tip: Make packing this lunch even easier by serving with a side of fresh vegetables and Litehouse Opadipity Creamy Ranch Dip.
My kids have enjoyed this Pinwheel recipe as a snack and part of their lunch, and I think it would be an awesome idea for a field trip brown bag.
