Lunchbox Roundup

With 2 little ones off to school and kinder we have had a whirlwind start to the year! Between my eldest needing to change class and chickenpox in the house it’s been pretty full on. 

Here is a roundup of all our lunches so far: 

   

   
    
    
    
    
  
Most are pretty self explanatory because my boys don’t really like baked items so we stick to fresh real food for the most part with a few treats here and there. Each day I strive for a balanced lunchbox with foods from each group to fuel their little bodies and minds for the day. I hope you’ve found something to try at home 😊

Grade 1 First 3 Lunches

It was a short week for the first week back in grade 1 for my boy. Big adjustments after the holidays so I just did some simple lunches without many picks to ease him back in. 

Wednesday:

  
Peas, corn cob, babybel cheddar, apple slices, boiled eggs, dried apricots and roast chicken spinach wraps.

Thursday:

  
Roast chicken mountain bread wraps, corn cob, apple slices, peas, boiled eggs, bagel crisps and watermelon.

Friday:

  
Peas, corn cob, apple slices, sultanas, coco2 wholemeal sandwich, grapes, cheese sticks wrapped in salaam and watermelon.

If your kids returned to school this week I hope it went well.

First Day of Kindergarten Lunch

My youngest is off to kinder today! This year there is something different to think of when I’m packing his lunch: I don’t need to pack it in an insulated bag because their lunches are stored in a fridge! 

I’ve never had this before, my eldest sons kinder had no fridges and neither does his school so it’s a little bit exciting and especially for my little one because he loves cold food 😊 this also saves the struggle of finding lunchbags to fit the boxes we use. 

They have the same as my eldest sons school: fruit break at 10am packed separately so I used this cute  double decker box and packed some of his favourite fruits: blackberries, strawberries and apple slices:

    
For his main lunch I have used the nude food movers Envirobox until I decide which one suits his kinder appetite best. I packed 1 and a half boiled eggs, cucumber sticks, roast chicken wholemeal roll, banana, babybel cheddar, yoghurt pouch, and sugar snap peas:

  
Once he gets home I will see what he ate and go from there as to what I pack next time. It’s all trial and error in the beginning so I stuck with foods he loves and eats at home I just need to get the amounts right because he is a big eater so may need more! 

Happy start of the year everyone,
