10 days in the life of a lunch box

 

 

 

Hi! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on my blog so I thought this one should be full of lunchbox ideas. I am a working mum and I highly value healthy home made food for my children. I make a lot ahead. We even have a box in our freezer called “the bakery” and I’m reminded if it’s running low! We use cooler bags with small containers generally. We also have a stainless steel lunchbox for my eldest used in place of all the containers. Maybe you might enjoy incorporating some of these lunchbox components.

Lunch boxes are always packed the night before and everything put in the fridge for morning. It’s the only way I have found that works in our house.

Here are some ideas below that I regularly use and my children love. The photos aren’t always great because I assemble the lunches at night – no pinterest worthy photos here, just basic, healthful food to fuel growing bodies 🙂

Baked tofu, cheese and vege sticks.
Creamy soy milk jelly pots.
Dairy free, egg free “cup cakes” (date and apricot is a yummy combination).
Free range egg and spinach wholemeal sandwiches.
Coconut and vanilla chia pudding.
Wholemeal, dairy free scrolls.
Celery boats with dairy free cream cheese and sultanas.
Crackers with cream cheese and vegemite.
Yoghurt topped with fresh fruit.
Zucchini slice, cherry tomatoes and pepitas.
Savoury vegetarian muffins (insect shaped silicone molds have proven very popular).
Stemed vegetables with yoghurt dip.
Pasta salad with creamy sauce or plain with fresh vegetables mixed through.
Oven baked pita bread with hommus topped with peas.
Steamed corn on the cob.
Avocado splashed with lemon juice (slice in skin for easy scooping).
