  • love all these ideas, my biggest issue is getting the time


  • love the little sushi sandwiches and great way to get some veg into their lunch box.


  • Some great ideas here. I am going to use them for MY lunch as my child is happier with a simple lunch.


  • Great ideas to keep the kids interested and full at school


  • these look like fun and lots of variety too


  • My kids (and husband) are happy to take a cold meat and salad wrap, fruit salad, yoghurt and cucumber. Sometimes they get a slice of banana bread, homemade pancakes or pizzas. and this week I am going to try apple oatmeal mini muffins.
    Good to have recipes on hand for something different.


  • I love this


  • Fabulous recipes and ideas here. I do remember reading an article, on here probably, where a mum was asked to stop sending home cooked items in their child’s lunchbox as the other children were jealous. Honest to god, a true article, the teacher sent a note home. Ridiculous I know, you can’t beat home cooking!


  • Great ideas thanks, the lunch box is my daily dread


  • Very easy and nice recipe


  • How easy is a ham sandwich though haha
