It’s back to school and I’m looking for some lunchbox 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.

What do your kids like in their lunchbox? Please add a comment below.

  • Love all your recipes, but fear the teacher ‘police’ wouldn’t pass some of them at my granddaughter’s school. But they are great to make for treats for my grandchildren anyway. Thanks for sharing


  • Strawberries and blueberries as well as sweet peas are the the favs this year


  • These recipes all sound very simple to make. Might have to make some of them instead of buying all of the time. Will certainly save me some money.


  • Might have to give some of these a go. Was planning on trying apple and muesli muffins in lunch boxes. Banana bread is also popular in school lunches


  • Mm bliss balls. I’ll pack some for me too


  • My kids love energy balls, yoghurt pouches and obviously junk food. I try to keep the latter to a minimum.


  • Pizza scrolls would be my choice here my favourite to make for my son


  • Interesting list there, some look yummy


  • All great ideas for the lunch box!


  • Fruit, roasted chickpeas, nuts, a sandwich with added spinaches. Those sweet potato chips are very inviting!


  • cheese, fruit, crackers, a sandwich, home made muesli bar. Fruit salads are great


  • Thanks for this reminder, I need to make some more zucchini slice and mini quiches in the school holidays ready for term 3.


  • Great ideas. I love the pikelets and scrolls.


  • If only I could get my daughter to even try half of this stuff! for her, its either fried rice or jam sandwiches. If i give her something else, it comes back home again.


  • Goodness me, I don’t think it needs to be this complicated.
    A salad of snow peas, carrot, cucumber, celery with a chicken drumstick.
    An apple.
    A home made jelly or home made yogurt.

    Done. Real whole food is the key.
