It’s back to school and I’m looking for some lunchbox recipes inspiration. In one week alone I make around 20 lunchboxes, so I’m constantly on the lookout for new recipes and ideas to keep up variety for the kids.

Here are 10 of the Best School Lunchbox Recipes that have already been tried and tested by real Mums, you can’t go wrong.

Pizza scrolls – make vegemite and cheese ones too, easy and kids love them

Apple and raspberry muffins – easy and delicious.
Pikelets – a winner in my house.
Muesli bars – a healthier alternative to the bought ones.
Choc chip biscuits – easy and the kids will love them.
Apple balls – healthy and tasty.
Sweet potato chips – these are so delicious and crunchy.
Mini quiches – use the kids favourite fillings.
Zucchini slice – a winner in my house.
Chocolate balls – sugar and nut free and delicious.

  • Scrolls of all kinds seem to be a favorite in our house.


  • Simple and tasty! I’m a bit lucky, my hubby does all our lunches each day, but going to share for him for some inspiration


  • Thank you for this summary – this is fantastic. I look forward to when the kids can help more so that we can make these together without creating two days worth of cleaning in the kitchen.


  • Looks yummy, thanks for sharing your recipes


  • Great suggestions.


  • yum I want someone to make ME a pizza scroll for lunch


  • Some tasty options there but not sure they would fill me kids up?


  • I’m not at the school stage yet but are these filling enough for them? They look more like snacks. Or is it about packing a few of each item?


  • Fantastic ideas, I have 2 fussy eaters so need all the help i can get!


  • My husband is a teacher, so I didn’t get a break from school lunches outside of the holidays!
    As yummy as some of these recipes look, I think a cold meat and salad wrap would take less time and less dishes.


  • My daughter makes her own healthy lunches, which is lovely to see.


  • Nice. My daughter loves a sandwich, a bagel, zucchini slice with cherry tomatoes, a spinach and feta roll. And some fruit.


  • These are all fantastic ideas and yum. I’m going to steal a few. Ideal for work day snacks for me too.


  • These all look great. Very delicious and healthy recipes that kids would enjoy! I enjoy switching up recipes and new ideas are always welcome! Thanks.


  • Always looking for new ideas! Sweet potato chips look good, and I’ve been meaning to try muesli bars for ages
