Keeping your child’s lunchbox exciting, yummy and healthy is a never ending job. Here’s a few fresh ideas that will have your little ones counting down to lunch time and will hopefully save you time on the daily prep.
Frozen fruit cups
Place cake liners in a baking tray and fill with your child’s favourite fruit. Pop it in the freezer. The fruit will defrost during the morning leaving nice cold fruit.
Dunking is so much fun for kids. Make your own by freeze dips in an ice cube tray. You can then pop a couple of cubes in a small container. Some carrot sticks or crackers depending on the dip and you have a healthy and cost effective snack that will be ready by the time they go to eat it.
I know I loved these when I was younger! Make your own stackable crackers. Buy some fun shaped cutters. Then chop some ham, cheese and vegetables and pop them all plus some crackers in a lunch box.
You kids will love building their lunch.
Preparing as much of a lunchbox as you can the night before will save those precious minutes during the manic morning rush.
