This collection of easy sandwiches and wraps for college students has a little something for everyone. College is a transition for both student and parents. I’m just a couple of years away from my oldest heading off to college. I sometimes think about some of the things I will worry about when he’s gone. One thing is how well he will eat. He’s pretty picky though I know not all kids are.
If your child lives off campus all of these sandwiches and wraps are easily doable in an apartment kitchen. Many schools now allow a mini fridge in dorm rooms and some even have common areas where you can microwave or even do minimal cooking. There are some sandwiches in this round-up perfect for those students too.
