  • My kids school provides lunch every day but I’ve been looking for some ideas for my 2 year old so will definitely give some of these a go!


  • Going to try a few of these on my fussy eaters! They are just happy to come home and have a peanut butter sandwich lol!


  • What awesome ideas. Ready for a cook up this weekend. Thanks for sharing


  • Awesome ideas for snacks and lunches. Will have to add a couple of them to my daughter’s lunchbox.


  • Gone are the days of the cheese and vegemite sanger!


  • I would add wraps. You can put a base of Philadelphia for example, baby spinach leaves, feta cheese, roasted peppers, carrots… I’ve got these wrap tubes that make it so easy to carry around.


  • Good ideas esp. cheesy mite scrolls.


  • Some good ideas there !


  • These look yum but anything egg based I’m a little hesitant to put in the lunch boxes. We had issues last year with the bag storage area being in full sun :(


  • I’m going to make a start on these in the holidays and pop them in the freezer for when terms starts. Great ideas thanks


  • Oh yummy.
    I hate giving sandwiches all the time. I think I’ll be making these for lunches.


  • These are great ideas ! Thanks.


  • These are some great ideas.


  • Another thing you can make is muffins with grated vegetables in them.
    Cold meats and dairy products have to be kept cold. Some schools the pupils’ bags are in shelves under a verandah, not a great ides in warm / hot weather


  • My kids absolutely LOVE the vegemite scrolls! Delish!
