  • Great suggestions that I def will be trying out.


  • Love this! Even I get sick of taking a sandwich to work


  • That pita bread pizza looks so good!
    My kids aren’t in school yet but I just pack leftovers from dinner when my toddler gets baby sat by my parents.
    She loves pasta, noodles and rice.


  • Thanks for sharing some great ideas here! Very helpful :)


  • Use dinner leftovers too-chicken wings or skewers, sliced meat to dip in to hummus or tzatziki, cheese & crackers, cherry tomatoes, qukes, tuna, pasta or potato salad and in the cooler months a thermos of soup or leftover pasta zapped in the microwave in the morning – kids like hot lunches in Winter too!


  • My kids love pizza scrolls! I’m def gonna give the rice paper rolls a go, they look delicious!


  • Pizza scrolls!! Yumm. My kids loves a sausage roll for lunch ????


  • I love the rice paper rolls idea. Im going to make some of them.


  • My kids love mini wraps.


  • A lot of ideas, great ideas for mums at home too or for work.


  • I love all of these but I also know my son only ever wanted sandwiches. He wasn’t interested in any other options that might make him look different at school. Yes, it’s a thing!

  • vegemite scrolls or any kind of scrolls are always a winner. cold pasta is often well received too.


  • They all look yum. I have never been a fan of sandwiches. Rice paper rolls or scrolls sound good
