It’s back to school season and if you’re stressing about what to pack your child for lunch, you’re not alone!
And now Healthy Mummy Hayley’s little one is just entering kindy she knows the importance of healthy lunch box fillers!
“It can be daunting to think of foods that will keep well in a lunch box and it’s important that our kids have healthy, well-rounded foods throughout the day,” says Hayley.
Simply roll leftover risotto into little balls, easy!
You can get the recipe for these on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
There are HEAPS of recipes for these on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, and they’re a bit more interesting than your average sandwich!
Wholemeal wraps will provide your child with long-lasting energy and fibre, see our Healthy Kids Lunch Boxes eCookbook for delicious ideas!
Our easy cheesy quiche cups are a great way to sneak the veggies in, and adults will love them too!
Hayley likes to fill lettuce leaves with things like ham and tomato, tasty!
1. Cook in bulk.
2. Do mini serves of main or adult meals.
3. Use segregated containers so that your kids can build their own crackers etc.
4. Let your kids help you make their lunch box foods, if they make it they are more likely to eat it and they learn valuable life skills.
5. If you have a baby who’s chewing solids, don’t feel limited to spreads on sandwiches. Blend foods up and spread them on bread e.g. chicken, avocado and corn.
