  • I love this idea, but I hope the teacher ‘gestapo’ will be happy to let it past their ideas of a healthy lunchbox. Most home cooked food seems to be discarded by them as not healthy enough.

  • We love doing an antipesto in lunches, homemade scrolls with whatever filling that want, pancakes.

    I wish my kids would eat some of these ideas

  • I have tried these types of snacks before but the kids either don’t want to eat them or they are too busy playing to eat.

  • Some great ideas here. Will have to try some of these out instead of sandwiches. Have a bit of a fussy eater, so hopefully some of theses ideas will be a hit.

  • Oh yum, makes me wish I needed to pack myself a lunchbox! I’m making those sausage rolls though, might have them for tea one night

  • Some of these my kids would want heated up so wouldn’t eat.

  • My kids would like fried rice and the sausage rolls.

  • Some great ideas but my kids are such fuss pots with eating some of that stuff cold! But I bought them those stainless steel containers to bring warm food so hopefully that helps!
