tasty lunchbox tips

There’s still a few weeks left of the school holidays but back to school preparation is looming. We know that coming up with ideas for your kids’ lunchbox can be tricky. So here are 10 lovely lunchbox tips from some other Mums & Dads:

  1. my son loves wraps and you can sneak grated carrots, red peppers and other vegetables in them
  2. cold pesto pasta with chopped tomatoes, olives plus either chopped sausage, smoked salmon, tofu, etc
  3. cheese and bacon omelette cut into squares is a good lunchbox standby when we’re out and about  
  4. for a change I send in bread sticks and home-made salsa type dip (no spice) with little cheeses
  5. I do a batch of homemade popcorn seasoned with a small amount of sea salt every few nights, and bag it up for lunch boxes
  6. sweet red, orange and yellow peppers are good. Mine like as colourful and sweet. hummus to dip them in good too
  7. freeze grapes (and innocent tubes of course) for the lunchbox, helps keep lunchbox cool and ready to eat by lunchtime
  8. dried fruit mix - raisins, blueberries, cranberries goji berries, pine nuts, sunflower seeds & pumpkin seeds
  9. mini sweet corn on the cob, wrapped in foil should keep warm until lunchtime. Great winter warmer
  10. granola, great for nibbles and for keeping energy levels up throughout the day

Keep an eye on our facebook page next week where you can let us know your lunchbox tips and be in with a chance of winning a load of smoothies.
