Are wraps really healthy

Even though the average tortilla wrap has 149 calories (without fillings).  It has similar calorie content to two regular slices of white bread at 158 calories.  There is still plenty of reason add wraps to your diet.

There is no diet secret here, the only way to decide on a sandwich versus a wrap? You have to read the nutrition facts label.  You have to weigh up the nutrition facts before ordering or making one.  It is either on the packet or you can look them up online. Just compare options like serving size, calories, total carbohydrates, and total fibre.
