I was wondering whether when on a bulk it is ok to eat wholemeal wraps (http://www.tesco.com/groceries/product/details/?id=285725363) daily to help bump up the amount of carbs ingested.

Any help would be appreciated, cheers!

Whenever you want. Hit your protein and fat minimums while eating a diet comprised of mostly whole foods that includes plenty of micronutrients and fiber. Avoid going over your calories by fitting the wraps into your calorie allotment for the day. It's that simple.

I like bread, oats, potato, pancakes, waffles, rice, cereal. If you want to eat wraps go for it.

Look at the whole of your daily nutrition, your total intake, and how a food you like fits into it.

So things like chips are OK? I heard that things like chips are not as nutritional as say rice.

Yes, they're ok as a part of a balanced diet.

Even white rice has decent nutrition...

It has all the essential amino acids (making it a complete protein).

It contains B1-B6, folate, and other vitamins

It contains numerous minerals, with high amounts of iron and selenium.

Seems like a lot of nutrients to me.

If you limit what you look at to only the vitamins it doesn't have much of, of course it'll look poor. Check cronometer instead.
